Black & Veatch appoints George Currie as Managing Director in Asia Pacific

He brings nearly 30 years of experience working outside his native UK across power, water and transport engineering projects.

Black & Veatch’s Management Consulting has appointed George Currie to lead and grow project financing and infrastructure management consulting services in the Asia-Pacific region.

The projected power, water and telecom infrastructure spending in Asia Pacific from 2011 through 2020 is expected to exceed US$4 trillion, US$1 trillion and US$400 billion respectively, according to an Asian Development Bank report. Joining as Managing Director in the Asia Pacific region, Currie will be focused primarily on developing and providing independent engineering and due diligence services to financial institutions in the region. Based in Singapore, Currie will be supported by engineers throughout Black & Veatch’s business to grow a team of management consultants in the region and build direct relationships with Asia Pacific’s banking and infrastructure investment community.

A civil engineer by training, he brings nearly 30 years of experience working outside his native UK across power, water and transport engineering projects. The last twelve years has seen Currie specializing as an independent consultant advising financial institutions investing in major infrastructure deals across Asia, the Middle East and Central America.

Prior to joining Black & Veatch, Currie helped devise a strategy and development plan to create a national rail system in Qatar to be ready for the World Cup 2022. Prior to this, he has worked as an investor’s or lenders’ technical advisor on a variety of projects including the New Cairo Wastewater Treatment Plant PPP, Theun Hinboun Expansion hydropower project in Laos and CBK hydropower plants in the Philippines.
