Commenting on his new post, Gary said: "It is time to take Mott MacDonald to the next level in north east Asia. While we already have a very strong presence in the region we can further strengthen this by creating synergies across our business and the sectors we operate in. We understand our clients’ needs and can demonstrate the value we can add by constantly rethinking the way we work to offer creative and innovative solutions that are tailored to our customers’ needs."
