HIGHLANDS RANCH, Colo., Jan. 08, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Arcadis (EURONEXT:ARCAD) announces the appointment of Justin Wright as chief information officer for its North and Latin America regions. Wright joined Arcadis in 2007 and brings 20 years of professional experience in the design, consulting, real estate, and aviation industries.
