Aurecon appoints new MD for Asia region

Stephane Asselin is passionate about the infrastructure, marine, water, energy, and environmental sectors

Aurecon has announced that Stephane Asselin has taken the reins as its new managing director for Asia. The move comes as the company launches a growth initiative in the region, which the firm says is a key area of focus.

Based in Hong Kong, Asselin will oversee all commercial operations with a focus on driving new business and continuing the acceleration of digital engineering and advisory offerings to clients, Aurecon said.

“Aurecon is a company with a solid reputation and great brand built on innovation, safety, quality and growth, so this is a perfect opportunity for me. Asia is a fast-paced region where there are many challenges and opportunities around sustainability, urbanisation, digital transformation and infrastructure. I believe Aurecon is well-placed to take a leading role in accelerating Asia’s development, with the best mix of people, technology and eminence to drive real progress,” says Asselin.

Asselin is said to be a ‘senior and experienced commercial leader’ and has spent over half of his 25-year career living and working in Asia. According to Aurecon, he has a proven track record in delivering business outcomes and developing a strong talent base focused on executing strategy.

As per a statement from Aurecon, he recently helped Vietnam-based Atlas Industries in their expansion into the North American market, and worked with Canadian government-owned company Société du Plan Nord, where he led their infrastructure and environmental spending programs.

“The appointment of Stephane is the result of a global search to find the best leader for our company, capable of meeting our growth aspirations in Asia in tandem with our Advisory and Digital businesses. Stephane is articulate, thoughtful and driven with a great talent for setting client strategy and developing enduring relationships. He will be a major asset, not only to Aurecon, but also to our clients and business partners,” said William Cox CEO of Aurecon.
