Mace appoints Steve Gee as head of Cost Consultancy for MENA region

Industry veteran joins Mace after 16 years at AECOM

Mace, the international construction and consultancy company, has announced the appointment of Steve Gee as head of Cost Consultancy for the Middle East and North Africa (MENA).

In a statement, Mace said that Gee joins Mace after 16 years at AECOM, where he was most recently the vice president of Program Cost Consultancy (PCC) for Middle East and Africa. He brings a total of 22 years of cost and commercial experience from the construction industry and has helped deliver some of the Middle East’s most iconic projects, including Midfield Terminal Abu Dhabi, Cleveland Clinic Abu Dhabi, Eastern Mangroves Abu Dhabi, Ithra Cultural Centre KSA and Bahrain Financial Harbour, the statement added.

Mark A Taylor, Managing Director for MENA at Mace, said: “Steve is a fantastic industry leader with outstanding cost consultancy expertise, and we are delighted to welcome him to Mace. As we continue to grow our footprint in the Middle East, Steve will lead the charge on expanding our cost consultancy offer in key sectors including infrastructure.

“Moreover, his leadership style, energy and vision make him a great fit for Mace, as our people sit at the heart of what we do in delivering distinctive value for our clients.”

Gee moved to the Middle East in 2005 with Davis Langdon (DL) and took up the role as director for the Bahrain office in 2008. When DL was acquired by AECOM in 2010, Steve had already moved to the UAE and by 2013 had taken over the running of the AECOM’s Cost Consultancy Practice Line in the UAE.

He quickly expanded his role to become Vice President of Middle East and Africa where he had expanded the business to include 400 cost and commercial managers working across the Middle East and Africa, the statement continued.

“I’m very excited to embark on this journey with Mace. Mace is well-known for delivering major programmes in MENA and this role is a great opportunity to take the cost consultancy side of the business to the next level,” Gee said.

“I particularly look forward to growing the team and leveraging my background in cost consultancy and infrastructure to help clients realise their project ambitions.”

Gee will be based in Mace’s Dubai office.
