Strengthening our senior leadership team in Asia
We are bolstering our senior leadership team across Asia, with new appointments reflecting the needs of our global clients and supporting our business’s future growth and ambitions in target sectors and markets.
As of 1 May, Brian Shuptrine has assumed the role of Managing Director, Asia. Brian takes over the reins of the Asia business from Anooj Oodit, former Managing Director, Australia, New Zealand and Asia, who becomes Managing Director, the Americas.
Stepping up from his previous role as Head of Real Estate, Asia, Brian takes responsibility for our strategic direction in the region across the real estate, infrastructure and natural resources sectors. He brings his extensive local market experience to bear at a time when global construction continues to grapple with cost escalation, supply chain constraints, the adaptation to digital ways of delivery, and a need to achieve ambitious net-zero goals.
Since joining the firm in 2006, Brian has worked and lived in Japan, Singapore and now Hong Kong, helping to drive our exponential business growth in Asia during his 15 years in the region. He has recently overseen the growth of the firm’s market leading position in both data centres and portfolio management in Asia, while cultivating local industry expertise across all sectors and markets in which we operate.
With a keen interest in driving transformation in Asia’s construction sector, Brian also serves as the newly elected Vice Chair of the Construction, Property & Infrastructure Committee at the Australia Chamber of Commerce in Hong Kong (AustCham).
Supporting Brian, other new appointments within our Asia business include Sumit Mukherjee, appointed as Head of Real Estate, Southeast Asia, and Tino Chang, taking on the role of Head of Mainland China. Both Sumit and Tino join as members of the Asia Board tasked with realising bold business expansion plans across the region.
Brian Shuptrine, Managing Director, Asia comments:
These appointments celebrate the breadth of our exceptional talent across the business and reflects our drive to bring exceptional programme, project and cost management services to our markets and emerging industry sectors.
"With significant investment planned across Asia to the end of the decade, and cities ramping up for economic growth, there is a pressing need to embed carbon accounting and digital ecosystems in major real estate, infrastructure and natural resources projects in both the public and private sectors."
"Our team specialises in delivering these integrated services with consistency and efficiency across projects, programmes and portfolios. Together, we look forward to helping our clients navigate complex challenges to deliver more resilient and sustainable capital assets across Asia."
