GHD, one of the world’s leading engineering, architecture and environmental consulting companies, has appointed Dr Michael Ma as the Market Leader - China. Michael has over 20 years’ experience across a diverse range of areas including architecture design, engineering construction, foreign investment and risk management.

China’s economic expansion is creating exceptional growth opportunities for international professional organisations such as GHD. As the Market Leader, Michael will be responsible for developing and coordinating GHD’s service offerings to Chinese businesses around the world.

Michael was most recently Regional Director - North Asia with Aon Australia, providing tailored risk solutions for Chinese outbound investment, especially in agriculture, mining, energy and infrastructure sectors.

Michael is also an adjunct lecturer at Tsinghua University in China, teaching international marketing to MBA students and risk management in executive training programs.

Commenting on his appointment, Michael says, “As Chinese businesses grow their footprint globally, they face many challenges such as language barriers, cultural differences and regulatory issues. Building on my previous risk management experience, I’m very excited to work collaboratively with GHD multidisciplinary team in providing a broad range of services to our Chinese clients. Our Chinese client management team links GHD professionals around the globe to provide coordinated and consistent services. Our cross-cultural management skills and integrated capabilities will help us succeed in this growth market.”
