Case Study

Group Managing Director – Services

Through Project 4 we continue the drive to be the most knowledgeable, agile and connected local service provider. Comprising of more than 40 globally diverse locations, our Services business is the primary steward of our key long-term relationships with local customers.

Our Services business is the wellspring from which we have created the other three business lines of Major Projects, Improve and now Advisian. For this reason it has the additional role in stewarding the interaction between the various business lines for the benefit of local customers. These local businesses have been WorleyParsons’ engine room in our past periods of growth and they now provide the resilience of earnings during the current challenging global market conditions.  

The focus of this strategic effort is to turbo charge those specific locations where significant headroom for growth exists empowering the location leadership to pursue the opportunities available. A good current example of this type of location are our offices across the Middle East, where we hold strong local positions in countries where government mandated localization initiatives support those willing to invest in building the local businesses of the future.  

Our locations strive to be within the top three providers within their local market. This core principle has guided the Company across the last three decades and remains as valid now as it was in the beginning of the WorleyParsons geographical growth story. Through this strategy we continue to seek out new territories, often in support of our key global customers.
