Mace, an international consultancy and construction company, has welcomed a new member to its cost consultancy team of 80 in MENA (the Middle East and North Africa). The position of the head of the cost consultancy is now held by Paul Donaghy, an LLM with more than 20 years of experience in commercial and contractual administration of major construction and engineering projects in Ireland, Mauritius and the Middle East.
Paul Donaghy has a BSc in Construction Economics (honors degree), and an MSc in Pan-European Construction Management (honors degree). He is also currently completing an LLM in Construction Law & Arbitration.
His education at the University of Savoie Mont Blanc, the Nottingham Trent University, and the Dublin Institute of Technology brought him to where he is today, working for a £2 billion turnover company. Before coming to Mace, Paul was working in the contracts department at Meraas Development in Dubai, before holding the same position at North25.
Mark Taylor, Mace’s Regional Director for MENA, said: “Paul brings a unique perspective to Mace having worked within Meraas and North25, leading organizations, for more than six years. His understanding of a client’s needs and his experience of working on such a breadth of different projects will be invaluable. I am sure that our cost consultancy business in MENA will continue to thrive under his leadership.”
Mace also reported that “Paul’s first-hand experience of working for the region’s fastest growing developer, paired with his extensive knowledge of the local real estate economy, positions him well to tailor Mace’s cost consultancy services for clients.”
