Arcadis has announced it has appointed Lisa Samways as client and sales executive director for Australia Pacific.

Samways was previously Arcadis’ business leader for national buildings design in Australia, and takes on the new role following the appointment of Stephen Uhr as executive director Asia Pacific – clients, innovation and strategy.

CEO Malcolm McDowall says, “Lisa has been with Arcadis for over 14 years and has always demonstrated a strong passion to bring the best of Arcadis to our clients, not only in the buildings space but across everything we do.”

“I’m positive Lisa will help continue drive our strong performance and reputation for delivering nation-building projects across the country,” he says.

Samways will manage the client teams and market leaders, driving pursuits and sales, and will also join the regional executive team.
