AESG names new cost management division head

RAS AL KHAIMAH, 27 days ago

AESG, a leading international consultancy, engineering and advisory firm founded in the UAE, has appointed Daniel King as the head of this rapidly expanding Cost Management division. 
In this role, King will spearhead the delivery of best-in-class cost management services for large, complex construction projects in a manner that optimises cost efficiency and minimises commercial risk for clients.
King, who has over two decades of cost consultancy experience, spanning multi-million-dollar projects in Saudi Arabia, the UAE, Qatar, and the UK will report directly to AESG's Partner and Global Head of Cost Management, Gary Tracey.
Welcoming the appointment, Tracey said: "Daniel has been hired due to both his reputation and enormous value add he can bring to ensure cost certainty to meet our clients’ budgets. Far from being an inevitability, budget overruns can be avoided through skilful planning and sound strategy."
"This requires striking a precise balance between a myriad of factors including material costs, labour expenses, project timelines, and quality standards – which is what we at AESG have consistently achieved for our clients," he stated. 
"Our cost management service works to assure our clients that their visions can be made a reality, unimpeded by the pitfalls that plague projects that skip this crucial consideration. And with Daniel’s experience we can further enhance this service for our clients," he added.
Before joining AESG, King had served as Director of Cost Management at Currie & Brown, leading a team of over 70+ cost consultants, and working on iconic projects. 
Prior to this, as Senior Commercial Manager for the UAE at EllisDon, he led commercial and cost management for multiple large-scale projects on Saadiyat Island.
"Through our multidisciplinary service offering, clients can get access to strategic, well-rounded, and integrated solutions across disciplines," said King.
"The company’s cost management division is on an impressive upward trajectory. I am excited to help drive its ongoing success and be a part of the landmark projects that the company is working on," he added.-TradeArabia News Service
