Laurent Laberibe appointed as Project Director in the Middle East

chapmanbdsp is pleased to announce the appointment of Laurent Laberibe as Project Director, who will be based in the United Arab Emirates.

Laberibe is another valuable addition to chapmanbdsp’s Middle East operations, following the recent appointments of Andrew Morris as Director for the Middle East and Simon Cathrine as Director of Projects. They join the existing senior leadership team based in the region, including Principal Russell Hunter and Andrew Russell, Regional Director for the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia.

Born in France, Laurent Laberibe has spent the past 14 years in Sydney at an engineering consultancy, heading up the delivery of major projects in a wide range of commercial sectors in Australia and around the world. 

He will harness this experience in his new role at chapmanbdsp, building on the firm’s 15 year presence in the region. His principal responsibilities include driving existing projects to successful completion in locations such as Dubai, Abu Dhabi and Saudi Arabia, as well as generating business growth throughout the Middle East.

His new appointment marks a return to the chapmanbdsp business for Laberibe, who spent three successful years with the firm in its London office from 2005-2008.

He says, “I look forward to taking chapmanbdsp’s presence in the Middle East region to the next level, bolstering the strength of leadership there and building an extensive network of clients.”

Ray Upjohn, Chief Executive Officer of chapmanbdsp adds,

“We welcome Laurent back to the chapmanbdsp business. With his impressive track record in global engineering consultancy, we feel he is the perfect addition to our activities in the Middle East, a part of the world experiencing a wave of investment growth and cultural transformation.”
