MORRISTOWN, N.J. and ABU DHABI, UAE, May 16, 2016 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Louis Berger has appointed Loucas Symeon to lead the international construction services center. Symeon will oversee the center's strategy and its operational and delivery policies. In addition, he will provide operational construction support and supervise construction projects.
"We're excited to welcome Loucas to this leadership role," said Thomas Topolski, president of Louis Berger's international operation.

Under Symeon, the construction services center will set the benchmark for efficient and effective engineering and construction procedures. The center will encourage a culture of constant improvement, high performance and operational excellence by increasing integration and collaboration across Louis Berger's business lines and geographies.
"At its core, the construction services center is about achieving greater client focus," said Symeon. "Clients expect us to complete their construction projects on time and on budget, with integrity. Since project and operational efficiencies are drivers of timelines and budgets, clients and their projects will be the construction services center's biggest beneficiaries."
