McCartney takes the reins from Graeme Baxter, who is moving to support Turner & Townsend’s UAE operation.
McCartney commented: "Turner & Townsend has firmly established itself in the Qatar market and has grown significantly in the past six years, thanks to the successes of my predecessor Graeme Baxter and his team."
Turner & Townsend’s Middle East managing director, Mike Collings, said the appointment comes as the focus of Qatar’s construction industry moves from infrastructure to property.
"With Stephen in place we are well positioned to make the transition from working on maturing infrastructure projects to supporting the delivery of property projects that will facilitate a successful World Cup and help meet the country’s increasing demand for property," he said.

Rodney’s appointment will reinforce our offering in northeast Asia, help develop our existing client relationships and drive further growth in this exciting region."
