Layth Madi, Managing Director at Drees & Sommer UK, said: “I am very pleased to have been named as a Managing Director, and look forward to working with the UK team to grow our local presence, as well as further establishing the London office’s role as a gateway to global markets.

We are here to offer them tailored, expert support.”

Matthew Greenstreet, Director of Project Management and Construction at Drees & Sommer UK, said: “I am excited to join Drees & Sommer at a time when the London business is growing, as there is scope to strengthen the brand’s presence in the UK market, and become a trusted partner for major national and international projects.
