We have appointed Andre du Preez as Project Director in our Riyadh office, supporting our growing presence in the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia.

Andre brings 16 years of experience in the Middle East, including over a decade with MLC International leading the delivery of hospitality and mixed-use projects throughout the UAE and Qatar. He joins from JLL where, as Commercial Director, he has had responsibility for overseeing the completion of the King Abdullah Financial District development in Riyadh.

Alan Talabani, Regional Managing Director for the Middle East, said: “Our work in the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia has continued to go from strength to strength following the opening of our Riyadh office in 2018. Andre’s expertise will help us maintain this momentum – supporting the Kingdom to deliver some of the most ambitious capital programmes seen anywhere in the world.”

Andre du Preez commented on his appointment:

I am very excited to be joining Turner & Townsend as it grows its KSA business – contributing to its regional expertise at one of the most dynamic periods in the country’s history.
