Compass announces new chief executive officer

Spencer Wylie has over 25 years of experience and has worked with consultancies throughout the Middle East, Africa and the UK

Compass has appointed Spencer Wylie as Chief Executive Officer (CEO) for the group, effective 16 January, 2022. In his role, he will spearhead the next evolution of operational excellence and growth for the project development consultancy.

Well respected within the industry, Wylie has demonstrable specialism in the successful delivery of giga and mega- scale turn-key mixed-use developments, PMO and PMC solutions. Over the past 25 years he has realised iconic project successes, while steering business operations within international construction consultancies throughout the Middle East, Africa, and the UK, said a statement from the firm.

‘’I have long been aware of Compass’ reputation in the Middle East and could not turn down the opportunity to join such an agile company, with a natural affinity in improving built environment within the region, which fully aligns with my values. Building on the strong foundations already in place, as well as the support of the Dar Al Arkan partnership, our plans for 2022 and beyond will aid the groups’ ambitious goals of becoming an authority in turn-key project development solutions,” explained Wylie.

The firm notes that Wylie is the first of multiple strategic hires post the company’s recent announcement of their newly formed partnership with Dar Al Arkan Real Estate Development Company.

Alongside the new alliance, he will be structuring an expanded suite of service lines offering integrated property development solutions for project owners, strengthened with sustainable modern methods of construction and innovative technology methodologies, the firm added.

Luke Somerville, MD of Compass comments, “Compass’ year-on-year growth since 2014 has seen our capabilities add value to more complex client requirements. With this in mind, we are pleased to welcome Spencer onboard at this time, with confidence that his decades long expertise will further bolster the next stage of our progression, and ensure our clients continue to reap the benefits of our partnership-led approach in delivering multifaceted project success stories.’’
