Atkins, a member of the SNC-Lavalin Group, has appointed Wing Law as CEO for engineering services in Asia, with effect from 19 April 2022. With more than 20 years of experience in engineering and construction in the infrastructure and transport markets, Mr Law has a proven track record of successfully leading and growing businesses in the Asia region.
Catherine Li, outgoing CEO, is leaving after more than eight years with the company in a number of key roles.
“I am happy to welcome Wing to the team as we leverage our regional know-how with world class global capabilities that will underpin a new phase of growth,” said Steve Morriss, president for engineering services, United States, Asia Pacific and Mining & Metallurgy at SNC-Lavalin.
“Wing has the right skills and experience to lead our Asia business forward as we transform the way we work through our digital capabilities and support our clients’ evolving needs and transformational projects, as well as their net zero ambitions and targets.”
Mr Law explained that the Asia region “continues to see significant investment in infrastructure and transportation to meet population movements towards urbanisation, as well as efforts and plans to address the effects of climate change.
“The SNC-Lavalin, Atkins and F+G brands are very well known and respected, bringing expertise and a deep understanding of the region, having been part of its growth over the past decades, especially in Hong Kong. This is an exciting time to join a focused and growing company, and I am privileged to lead this great team to a successful future.”
Most recently, Mr Law was with WSP where he served as managing director for its Asia transport and infrastructure business. Prior to this, he held senior management and operational roles, including at Gammon, Arup and Jacobs where, at the latter, he was the regional design and construction director, responsible for promoting profitable growth in key markets while developing and maintaining client relationships across Asia.
