Alex Kwan, Chief Executive Officer for Asia at GISI

Global Infrastructure Solutions Inc. (GISI) has announced the rebranding of its recently acquired Arcadis Hong Kong Design and Engineering (HK D&E) and Singapore consulting businesses as Asia Infrastructure Solutions. The HK D&E rebrand takes immediate effect.

What does the move mean for GISI?

“Asia Infrastructure Solutions is the new brand for our civil, structural, geotechnical, project management and cost management businesses for the Infrastructure and Buildings end markets in the region,” said Tony Shum, GISI Co-Founder, Board Director and Asia Chairman.

“Though a new brand, the businesses’ professional and technical expertise and capabilities inherited from the legacy companies of Freeman Fox/Hyder in Asia and EC Harris/Davis Langdon & Seah in Singapore span decades and will continue,” Shum further commented.

“Under the new brand, we will strive to grow and strengthen the businesses and to serve our clients and communities better through committed investments in people and tech,” said GISI Asia CEO Alex Kwan, who will act as CEO of Asia Infrastructure Solutions until further notice.

What were the other structural changes at GISI?

When the Singapore consulting business acquisition closes, its rebranding will follow suit, subject to regulatory name-change procedures. GISI appointed Dickson Lo as lead director of the Asia Advisory Board. Mr. Lo was COO, Asia Pacific, AECOM when he retired in 2020.

“It’s our honor to have Dickson join us as an Advisory Board Director. We did so many great things together and we look forward to working with him again and receiving his advice for the strategic growth of our Asia businesses,” Shum and Kwan said of Dickson’s appointment.
