Paul Donaghy appointed to lead cost consultancy business for Mace in MENA

Mace has announced the appointment of Paul Donaghy as Head of Cost Consultancy in MENA

Paul brings to Mace over 20 years’ experience in the commercial and contractual administration of major construction and engineering projects in Ireland, Mauritius and the Middle East. He joins Mace’s 80-strong cost consultancy team in MENA with a focus on expanding the business and continuing to deliver high-quality cost consultancy services to clients across the region. 

Prior to starting his new role at Mace, Paul managed the Contracts Department at Meraas Developments, one of the largest developers in Dubai. Paul then continued to oversee the same Contracts Department within North25 Project Management. Paul worked across a wide range of high profile projects and sectors including retail, hospitality, leisure, residential, healthcare, infrastructure and land reclamation.

Paul’s first-hand experience of working for the region’s fastest growing developer – paired with his extensive knowledge of the local real estate economy – positions him well to tailor Mace’s cost consultancy services for clients. His focus will be on continuing to grow Mace’s cost consultancy offering with the aim of securing new business and becoming the cost consultant of choice in MENA.

Paul holds a BSc in Construction Economics (Hons), an MSc in Pan-European Construction Management (Hons) and is currently completing an LLM in Construction Law & Arbitration.

Mark Taylor, Mace’s Regional Director for MENA, said: 

“Paul brings a unique perspective to Mace having worked within Meraas and North25, leading organisations, for more than six years. His understanding of a client’s needs and his experience of working on such a breadth of different projects will be invaluable. I am sure that our cost consultancy business in MENA will continue to thrive under his leadership.”

Jason Millett, Mace’s Chief Operating Officer for Consultancy said: 

“We are delighted to welcome Paul to our team in Dubai. He has worked on some of the region’s most high profile projects and has first-hand experience of working at a high level within leading regional client organisations. Expanding our cost consultancy business is a strategic priority for Mace, and I look forward to working closely with Paul to deliver that ambition.”
