ARABTEC GROUP CEO TALKS ABOUT CREATING A SUSTAINABLE FUTURE FOR ONE OF THE UAE’S LEADING CONTRACTING GIANTS
In November 2016, Hamish Tyrwhitt was appointed as the group CEO for Arabtec Holding and entrusted with the task of turning around the fortunes of one of the UAE’S biggest contracting companies. After facing a string of losses for consecutive months, a streamlining of operations was needed to bring around the company’s lnancial performance to green. And Tyrwhitt got into action from day one itself.
He remarks: “When we look in the region, we have been involved with the construction of some of the incredibly iconic projects, not just in the UAE but the entire GCC. We went back to our basics and started focussing on what we are good at – being a contractor. It’s an ongoing process and our project selection is based on our capabilities in our core sectors in key geographical markets.”
