The appointment will see Fernandes focus on company growth in regional and international markets
Fire and life safety specialist Tenable Fire Engineering Consultancy (FEC) has appointed Roy Fernandes as Projects Director, the firm has announced.
In a statement, Tenable said that Fernandes’ new role will see him focus on company growth in regional and international markets, with the aim of expanding the consultancy’s portfolio of global projects.
Tenable FEC’s Dubai Director, Sam Alcock, commented on Fernandes’ appointment: “As we continue to grow year on year, we are excited to welcome Roy to our team to further support our growth plans for 2023 and beyond. Roy demonstrates a clear passion for the fire and life safety industry, which is evident through his previous achievements, strong client partnerships and desire for development.”
“As we expand into more markets, Roy’s proficiency in international codes will bring tremendous value to our team and clients and will allow us to work more efficiently across multiple projects and countries,” he added.
In early December 2020, Tenable’s Sam Alcock joined the 2020 Big Project Middle East Awards’ judging panel.
With more than 17 years’ of experience across a diverse range of sectors, including hospitality and transportation across the Middle East, Fernandes takes on his new role with in-depth expertise in fire and life safety consultancy services, specialising in code consulting.
He has nearly two decades of experience in managing high-profile projects and developing client relationships, and will utilise his technical expertise to develop Tenable FEC’s global portfolio of projects, with a strong focus on Saudi Arabia, Africa, India, the UAE and Oman, the statement continued.
Prior to joining Tenable FEC, Fernandes held senior project management roles with Jensen Hughes and Aon Fire Protection Engineering. He played a pivotal role in executing these organisations’ growth strategies, while delivering customer-centric fire and life safety consulting solutions across international projects spanning various verticals.
Commenting on his new role, Fernandes remarked, “I’m delighted to be joining Tenable FEC. The team places paramount importance on the preservation of life within the built environment, no matter the size or scope of a project, which is fully aligned with my own ambitions of raising regional standards and delivering world-class fire and life safety consultancy services.”
In mid February 2021, Alcock spoke to Middle East Construction News about how fire and life safety strategies need to evolve, so as to protect buildings and their residents.
He concluded, “I believe I can bring further value to our existing and future client partnerships and implement growth strategies that will help the organisation exceed its 2022 achievements.”
