Former Aecom healthcare principal Randy Edwards has joined HDR Architecture as vice president and healthcare principal for the Middle East.
Working out of HDR’s Dubai office, Edwards joins with more than 30 years’ experience in the healthcare and higher education industries.
Prior to Aecom, he was the managing director of Ellerbe Becket’s Middle East, Asian and European markets.
His portfolio includes the King Fahd Specialty Hospital masterplan and King Khalid Medical City in Dammam, KSA, as well as the University Hospital and American Hospital in Dubai.
“Having lived in Dubai for more than four years, Randy brings a unique understanding of the local culture, business climate and infrastructure needs of the region,” said Ahmad Soueid, HDR senior vice president and director of development for the Middle East.
“Randy’s experience leading large, complex projects and pursuits —coupled with his understanding of the diverse cultures and traditions throughout the Middle East—will better enable HDR to help our clients reach their aspirations for the future of healthcare delivery,” added Soueid.
