I look forward to working with her to serve our clients in the AMEA region as we continue our journey to provide solutions to meet the most pressing global challenges of our time.”

Healy’s primary focus will be on advancing AtkinsRéalis’ engineering services offering, spanning infrastructure, transportation and clean energy segments. She will report to the president and CEO and will also be a member of AtkinsRéalis ‘s executive committee.

Last December, AtkinsRéalis was appointed to support the design of the New Murabba masterplan, the world’s largest modern downtown in Riyadh and the Mukaab, an immersive destination that will revolutionise the way in which people experience hospitality, retail and leisure.
