Paul joins the team from global infrastructure company Cardno, where he was responsible for building client relationships across utility engineering and surveying, infrastructure, and development projects throughout the south-east region in his capacity as business development manager. He brings with him 20 years’ experience within the construction industry and has earned an exceptional reputation for developing opportunities on behalf of start-ups and Fortune 500 companies alike.
Commenting on his appointment, Paul said: “This is a hugely exciting time for Gleeds on a global scale. The business already has a track-record for delivering excellence across this dynamic sector, which extends back 35 years and its offering continues to develop. I’m thoroughly enjoying being part of such a driven and ambitious team and look forward to playing my part in its future success”.
Chris Williams, President of Gleeds Americas, went on to say: “Earlier this year, our business underwent a complete restructure to enable us to better meet the needs of our increasing client base – particularly in the energy and industrial sectors here in the Americas. Paul’s hire represents the consultancy’s commitment to continuing our expansion in these areas and we are delighted to be welcoming someone with his level of experience and local knowledge to the team”.
Gleeds has secured a host of high-profile project appointments and portfolios across the UK, Middle East, and China thanks to its specialist experience in the energy, oil and gas industries. In the Americas, the business has completed substantial schemes for both Piedmont Natural Gas and NiSource and is currently working with a stellar roster of clients, including NextEra Energy, Southern Company Gas, and Nicor Gas amongst others.
