René has a proven track-record for driving business growth, enhancing collaboration across teams, and delivering integrated solutions for clients. Our efforts and investments to position ourselves as a much more diversified business are well underway, with exciting opportunities such as our pursuit of the Site Specific Engineering Studies (SSES) for coastal resilience and our recent digital engagement with LTA being just two examples. With his knowledge and experience, we look forward to René furthering the evolution of the business in Singapore with a refreshed focus on sustainability and digital solutions aligned with our new global strategy,” says Glenn J. Lutz, CEO of Arcadis Asia.
