Golder Associates elects a new CEO
Global consulting and engineering firm Golder Associates has appointed Dr Hisham Mahmoud as president and CEO.
Mahmoud’s career spanned some 27 years, the majority of which was spent working at diversified global engineering and construction companies.
He joined Golder from SNC-Lavalin, where he was hired in 2013 as president of the infrastructure group, which included the company’s infrastructure concession investments, engineering, construction and operations and maintenance businesses.
Prior to that, Mahmoud served as AMEC growth regions group president, responsible for the company’s mining, oil and gas, power and environment and infrastructure business in the Middle East, Africa, the Commonwealth of Independent States, Asia and Australia.
“Hiring our first external CEO represents a pivotal moment in the history of our great company. Mahmoud has all the attributes we sought to take the business forward.
The common feature of his working life has been his ability to drive strategies that add value and generate business growth,” Golder Associates lead board director Ian Smith commented in a statement on Tuesday.
