Arup has welcomed two new additions to our senior leadership team with the appointment of Andy Hodgson, as Singapore’s Advisory Services Leader and Tony Chan, as Associate Principal, Southeast Asia’s Cities and Planning team.
Based in Singapore, they will support the firm in expanding its capabilities across Southeast Asia, furthering the aspirations of the Arup Future Cities Hub.
Andy and Tony join an experienced bench of city design leaders, led by Neil Walmsley. Together with the Future Cities Hub cohort, they will help propel the technical and design leadership established in Singapore to cities across Southeast Asia.
With over 17 years of experience in infrastructure advisory, Andy provides strategic counsel to a range of clientele including developers, investors and government institutions.
As their Advisory Services Leader, he will formulate infrastructure strategies, assess technical and commercial viability of investments, unlock enterprise value and set long-term plans for clients to achieve economic development aspirations.
“I am delighted to be joining Arup at such an exciting time for infrastructure development across Asia,” said Andy. “Arup is an established leader in delivering large, technically challenging and strategic city-shaping projects globally. I really look forward to building on Arup’s reputation with my range of experience in this area.”
Tony specialises in leading multidisciplinary teams to efficiently integrate masterplanning and urban design with infrastructure projects.
With a strong background of 19 years in sustainable urban development, Tony has led various award-winning projects and has played a key role in pivotal projects across the region including establishing Thailand’s Eastern Economic Corridor.
“With cities facing a myriad of physical and geopolitical challenges, I’m looking forward to help clients and partners define and develop urban projects that can be delivered in an integrated and resilient manner,” concluded Tony. “Arup’s commitment to shape thriving, healthy and successful cities is very aligned with what I hope to achieve in this space.”
