Arup is pleased to announce the appointments of Andy Howard as Chairman of the Americas Region and Leo Argiris as Chief Operating Officer of the Americas Region. Their appointments reflect the firm’s forward thinking and capacity to embrace change: Arup routinely rotates its leadership to bring fresh perspectives to the firm’s growth and development in the Americas and worldwide.
The new management team aims to bring the world’s best ideas and advice to clients in the Americas. By leveraging digital technologies to provide clients with efficient and inventive solutions, Howard will both drive the vision for the firm’s future and serve as a steward of Arup’s legacy.
“Because our firm is owned in trust, with its employees as beneficiaries, we have the opportunity to invest heavily in innovation for the benefit of our clients and industry. This is a powerful motivator for me and the entire Arup team to continue to develop transformative ways of working,” says Howard. Arup’s clients also benefit from the company’s high rate of employee retention, which ensures sustained, focused research. Argiris adds, “For Arup, growth is not a target, but an enabler that allows us to provide the best services to our clients and interesting opportunities for our staff.”
Arup is an independent firm of designers, planners, engineers, consultants, and technical specialists offering a broad range of professional services.
