dwp has appointed general manager, Qasim Mansoor, to its UAE office, to realign and enhance business development within the region for the group.
“It is with pride and great enthusiasm that I take up the lead position at dwp’s UAE office. The dwp group has a network, strength, resources, talent and unique qualities that few can rival, putting us at the forefront of the design industry,” he said.
“I look forward to taking these essential skills, along with this fantastic opportunity, personally and professionally, to remodel and build upon dwp’s reputation, as a world-class architecture and interior design firm.”
The appointment of Mansoor comes amid significant changes to dwp’s operations in the Middle East, to better support its regional projects and clientele.
The new GM is already undertaking some realignments, to shift focus to a regional approach, via both UAE and Bahrain offices.

With experience in the industry, both in terms of management and design, particularly in hospitality, mixed-use, tall tower, aviation, healthcare and retail, such as Dulles International Airport, Mansoor shares a professional know-how with dwp.
