MEP Ex­ec­u­tive of the Year

MEP Middle East - - MEP AWARDS 2018 -

Gavin Ap­pleby, manag­ing di­rec­tor of EFECO (Emi­rates Fal­con Elec­trome­chan­i­cal Com­pany), won the cov­eted MEP Ex­ec­u­tive of the Year award.

After the win, Ap­pleby said: “This is an in­di­vid­ual award and an in­di­vid­ual award can­not be achieved without a team. So this award is really about me and my team. The re­sults that we have achieved over the last two years in EFECO have been in­cred­i­ble.

“We have bro­ken down the bar­ri­ers of com­mu­ni­ca­tion. We have worked to­gether as a team. We have in­vested heav­ily in in­no­va­tion. We have trained our peo­ple sig­nif­i­cantly. And we have in­vested in mak­ing sure that we mea­sure ev­ery­thing we do.”

Ap­pleby joined EFECO in 2017 and he has had a di­rect im­pact on the team through his sup­port­ive lead­er­ship, which en­ables the team to achieve their full po­ten­tial while giv­ing own­er­ship to team lead­ers. He has in­vested time to re­cruit the right in­di­vid­u­als to build on the suc­cess of the or­gan­i­sa­tion.

In an ear­lier in­ter­view with MEP Mid­dle East, Ap­pleby spoke about his team and firm’s strengths: “We have an ex­cep­tional BIM team and en­gi­neer­ing di­vi­sion within our group which is part of our strength in this whole resurgence of EFECO. We have more than 26 BIM op­er­a­tors who are work­ing as EFECO em­ploy­ees.” Last year, EFECO went through a re-build­ing process, said Ap­pleby. He ex­plained: “When you re-build an or­gan­i­sa­tion, you have to get back to the grassroots. We en­tered the year with ex­cep­tional project ex­e­cu­tion and man­u­fac­tur­ing ca­pa­bil­ity across both duct­work and pre­fab­ri­ca­tion. Last year, fi­nan­cially, we ended the year in good shape.”
