15 October 2019 2 min. read

International assets management and construction consultancy Currie & Brown has appointed Campbell Gray to spearhead its global integrated project management agenda.

Currie & Brown – an international assets management and construction consultancy with an outlet in Dubai among its six principal offices – has announced a recruitment coup; appointing experienced industry veteran Campbell Gray as its new global chief operating officer of integrated project management. Gray joins after nearly two and a half decades with Faithful+Gould, having for the past seven years headed up its Middle East business.

“With his strong background in integrated project management consultancy and his ability to provide innovative solutions to client organisations in the built environment, Campbell is a welcome addition to our executive team,” said Currie & Brown’s group CEO Euan McEwan. “This is a new position we have created to support the increasing number of clients who are seeking multiple services through a single point of integrated thinking."Currie & Brown recruits Campbell Gray for global integrated roleInitially joining Faithful+Gould in 1995, following a Bachelor of Science in Quantity Surveying with Napier University, Gray first tasted professional life on a significant project in the Middle East in 1997 – before permanently relocating to the UAE in 2011. Less than a year later, he was appointed Faithful+Gould’s managing director for the Middle East & Africa, a role he has held until now.  Gray also served as a member of Faithful+Gould’s global senior leadership team.

In the newly created role with Currie & Brown, Gray as a member of the firm’s operational executive has been tasked with spearheading its ongoing evolution toward a client solutions-orientated, global integrated project and programme management business – a trajectory the Currie & Brown has been on since McEwan’s arrival (notably, McEwan spent more than a decade at the start of his career as a consultant with PwC progenitor Coopers & Lybrand in London).

“I am delighted to be joining Currie & Brown at this exciting time as the company is expanding its service offering in integrated project management and embracing the opportunities that digital technology provides,” Campbell said of his appointment and the evolving construction landscape, with emerging tools such as BIM (or building information modelling). “I am looking forward to starting with the company and playing a pivotal role in its continued success and growth.”
