International engineering and design company Aurecon has appointed Feisal Noor as director of project management, planning and growth for Malaysia.
Aurecon expanded in Malaysia this year, anticipating infrastructure expansion on the back of strong economic growth.
Noor, who holds a Master’s in architecture from The Barlett School of Architecture, University College London, will promote Aurecon’s recent investments in specialist geotechnical consultancy, GCU Consultants Sdn Bhd and multi-disciplinary environmental consultancy, ERE Consulting Group in Malaysia.
He has more than 20 years’ experience in strategic development, design, advisory and project management. He previously led Aecom Malaysia’s Buildings and Places business unit.
“Having recently expanded our presence in Malaysia in April this year, Feisal’s appointment is another strategic milestone for our team. He will play an important role in enhancing our project management and planning consulting expertise to our clients in Malaysia”, said Mohit Kumar, Managing Director, Malaysia and Corporate Strategy and Sales Operations, Asia.
“Economists and analysts have forecast that Malaysia is set to achieve a 5.8% GDP growth in 2022. Factors contributing to the country’s growth include the Malaysian government’s budgetary support of RM69 billion, which will accelerate new and ongoing infrastructure projects in the country.”
