Kevin Lewis has been named the CEO of Dubai-based fit-out firm Depa Group, following the resignation of Hamish Tyrwhitt earlier this year.
Lewis had been the acting CEO of Depa Group since Tyrwhitt stepped down from the role on 1 May, 2019, but has now been given the job on a permanent basis.
He boasts close to two decades of experience in the UK and the Middle East and was previously the managing director of Depa Interiors.
Tyrwhitt, whom he has succeeded, is remaining on Depa Group's board as a non-executive director.
Depa Group is currently working on a number of projects across the Gulf, which includes three hotles in Dubai, as well as one secretive project in the UAE with UK-based architectural design practice Fosters + Partners.
Depa Group was named Fit-Out Firm of the Year at the Commercial Interior Design Awards 2018, and followed this up with a win at the Construction Week Awards three months’ later.
