TBH is pleased to announce the appointment and promotion of two of TBH’s leaders.
Based out of Singapore, TBH Director, Trevor Lam, currently leads TBH Asia’s Disputes and Project Planning service offerings. After 17 years with the business – first in Melbourne, Perth, and Singapore – Trevor has been appointed to the TBH partnership.
Trevor has been one of the key team members driving TBH’s burgeoning profile in Asia, and Trevor’s appointment to the partnership coincides with a period of significant growth for our Asia business and emphasises our growing commitment to this strategically significant region.
Based out of Singapore since 2014, Trevor has worked on large-scale transport infrastructure projects, power plant projects (both renewable and non-renewable), oil & gas projects, mixed-used developments and data centres, across Asia, Australia, Greece, the UK and Dubai. His clients have included private developers, owners, main contractors, sub-contractors and government agencies.
Specialising in the administration of time related claims, either preparing or assessing Extension of Time (EOT) and disruption claims – with the intent of avoiding disputes – Trevor is a testifying Delay Expert in arbitration and Court proceedings on matters across various project types and industry sectors.
Commenting on his appointment, Trevor Lam said: “I am delighted with the appointment to the TBH partnership. Having spent most of my career at TBH, the culture I have experienced within the business makes it special. We are committed to service excellence, coupled with a nurturing working environment. It makes TBH a truly rewarding place to work.
With continuing strong construction growth anticipated in South East Asia, implementing industry best practices in time management will become increasingly important for all project stakeholders in an increasingly competitive market. Accompanying the increasing volume of construction activity – a considerable portion of which will be in emerging markets – there will invariably be a growing number of construction disputes that parties will unfortunately encounter.
Underpinned by TBH’s extensive depth of experience built over the past 58 years, I am looking forward to helping our clients navigate these delay and disruption disputes. Preferably though, I look forward to supporting my clients in successfully delivering their projects and avoiding disputes, while ensuring they are armed with the necessary knowledge to make best-for-business decisions.”
Leading the charge from our Brisbane office is Moataz “Mo” Mahmoud. First joining them team as an Associate in 2020, Mo has been instrumental in growing TBH’s Risk capability, and in recognition of this contribution, has been promoted to Director (Risk).
As TBH’s Risk lead, Mo has been responsible for spearheading strategic initiatives and driving growth in this crucial area. Mo’s expertise has been instrumental in delivering successful outcomes for a wide range of major projects across rail, roads, utilities, defence, ICT, and renewables; while his passion for Risk and Project Controls has made him a sought-after professional by clients across Australia, Asia and MENA. Mo’s leadership has also been instrumental in fostering the growth of our Queensland branch.
Commenting on his promotion, Moataz said “I am deeply honoured and filled with gratitude for the opportunity of my promotion. Throughout my career at TBH, I have had the privilege of experiencing a remarkable organisation, surrounded by brilliant minds and a supportive team, which is incredibly rewarding.
As global markets continue to navigate new era challenges, it has become increasingly vital for all project stakeholders to adopt a pragmatic risk management approach. With the continued surge in investing, particularly in infrastructure, health, and other sectors, there will be a corresponding increase in interfaces and novel obstacles to overcome.
I look forward to supporting our clients in providing a proactive approach to anticipate and address these risk management challenges.”
