Michael Moore helps Currie & Brown expand facilities management capability in Saudi Arabia
1 September 2023
Leading provider of cost management, project management and advisory services Currie & Brown has recruited Michael Moore to join their growing team in Saudi Arabia.
Michael joins from Al Bawani and he previously worked for Cushman & Wakefield, where he was their CEO in Saudi Arabia and worked on high-profile projects such as Jeddah Tower. He brings with him over 15 years FM expertise in the Middle East, where he has achieved the successful delivery of added value projects to major clients.
Michael will be based in Currie & Brown’s Riyadh office. His expertise helps Currie & Brown to add value for clients, applying a proactive FM approach as opposed to the traditional ‘break then fix’ mindset that loses clients time and money in the longer term.
Currie & Brown employs over 2500 people worldwide and plans to recruit another 80 people in Saudi Arabia by the end of this year.
With $1.2 trillion projects either underway or in the pipeline, the demand for facilities management (FM) services has increased. Coupled with this, clients now need quality assets and better longer-term planning which can ensure a high level of operational reliability and optimise performance throughout the project’s lifespan.
Michael says “End users are becoming far more discerning, and their expectation levels continue to increase. Ensuring FM is considered in the early phases of the development plays a fundamental role in the long-term appeal and value of the asset to the end user. For example, this could be a business renting restaurants, hotels and offices from the owner where ensuring air conditioning services are fully operational is essential to the success of the business.”
He adds “I’m pleased to be joining the Currie & Brown team and contributing to the successful delivery of some of the world’s most exciting projects.”
James Irvine, senior director, KSA says “The range and depth of legislation covering the built environment is becoming more extensive and requires a more rigorous approach. Achieving compliance with the plethora of legislation, rules and regulations is at the core of the FM discipline and it is great to bring Michael to join our growing team and to be able to offer clients this service.”
Currie & Brown can add value by influencing the design and service delivery from procurement to managing agent solutions. For further information please contact Michael Moore at [email protected].
