    Managing Director, Perkins + Will MENA

    “Steven became the Principal Managing Director of Perkins+Will MENA 3 years ago and has overseen the Dubai office’s growth from a team of two to almost 50 designers and architects in a difficult market still in recovery from a global recession. Having achieved considerable market share in the regional corporate interiors sector with a raft of successful projects and awards, he is now focused on expanding both regionally and also with new sectors, including hospitality, new build and urban design teams, which have already captured prestigious projects in KSA, Turkey, and, of course, the UAE. A focus on being the best, and a shared vision of where that will lead the team to is the key attribute which Steven brings to the business - it is an ethos in which he hopes the company can continue to build upon as it expands.”
