Chadwick commented, “I intend to build on Stephen’s outstanding legacy, which has seen the creation of highly motivated teams, backed with the core infrastructure to operate efficiently and ensure the delivery of increasingly complex projects. My vision is to harness our teams’ considerable strengths, utilise our strong values and differentiators to drive and sustain solid and consistent performance. The wealth of talent and expertise in the team really marks ISG out as one of the most influential contractors in the region and I’m relishing the opportunity to further develop our customer base in the UAE.”
