Global engineering, management and development consultancy Mott MacDonald has appointed Chris Seymour as managing director of its Middle East business. Seymour first joined the consultancy in 2016 as development director for the Middle East and South Asia region.
As part of his new role, Seymour is responsible for expanding the consultancy’s operations across the region and will focus on energy, infrastructure and the built environment.
“Chris has made a huge impact since he joined us a couple of years ago. He takes on this role at an exciting time of change and development in the Middle East, with many regional governments looking to honor their ambitious infrastructure commitments. To fund this there is continued focus and appetite for PPP in the region, as well as spending commitments being made by some governments on the back of better oil revenues in the second half of 2017. With Chris’ broad experience and leadership, we’re looking forward to working closely with our clients in the Middle East to help them realise their ambitions,” said David Cox, regional managing director for Middle East and South Asia, Mott MacDonald.
Seymour has worked in several major cities across the Middle East for the last ten years and has 30-years of experience in project and programme management, public private partnership (PPP) technical advice, project finance, procurement and risk management.
