SSH CEO Hope to leave; Squires to take charge

DUBAI, August 13, 2017

SSH, a leading masterplanning, infrastructure, building design, construction supervision and project management firm in the region, has announced that CEO Bob Hope will step down from his position and will hand over charge to Matt Squires, the current chief operating officer, as part of the group's ongoing succession plan strategy.

Hope, who leaves after five years at the helm, will remain in an advisory support capacity for the remainder of the calendar year and will also continue to provide ongoing consultancy support to the group chairman, said a statement.

SSH chairman Omran Hayat stated: “On behalf of myself and the board of SSH, we would like to thank Bob for five years of outstanding service to SSH and in leading the transformation of the group from being a highly respected local design consultancy into a leading multidisciplinary design consultancy group across the Mena (Middle East and North Africa) region.

“Bob has developed a solid leadership team at SSH and as part of this team Matt has been developed as his successor. This news demonstrates both our commitment to internal staff development and the success of our succession strategy. I'm sure that Matt will now build on the foundation established to date and take SSH to even greater future success, and I congratulate him on his promotion,” he said.

 Squires will be leading the SSH delegation to the Dubai Cityscape as CEO in early September, the statement added. – TradeArabia News Service
