Kee has over 18 years of architectural experience
Benoy has appointed Neil Kee as director and head of Design Studio Dubai. Kee was previously divisional director at Benoy Singapore, and has an international portfolio spanning the retail, commercial, aviation and residential sectors.
Kee takes over from Paul Priest, and will be responsible for leading and overseeing regional projects and spearheading growth across the MENA markets. Kee has experience in the MENA region, having previously worked on Ferrari World Abu Dhabi in 2010. He was most recently involved in the development of Terminal 4 at Singapore’s Changi Airport.
“It is with great pleasure that I accept my appointment as Director and Head Design Studio Dubai at Benoy. I am honoured to have had the privilege of working on some of the company’s most notable projects in the far East, and I am incredibly excited to continue working on world-class projects, tailoring the experience to redefine and reinvent how space is used here in the region,” said Neil.
Kee’s appointment coincides with Benoy’s ten-year anniversary in the Middle East and North Africa.
Commenting on the handover, Priest said, “Benoy has been my home for ten years and I am proud to hand over the reins to someone as qualified and highly experienced as Neil. Our MENA studios will continue to thrive under Neil’s leadership, and I am highly confident in his ability to grow Benoy’s operations in the region and expand into new markets and sectors.”
