WHAT YOU’LL DO
Infrastructure, travel, transportation, cities and logistics form a significant and very dynamic part of the global economy. Massive amounts of public and private capital are flowing into physical infrastructure upgrades as well as sweeping changes driven by digitization and the climate transition. Very significant public and private entities exist in this space with bold ambitions over the coming decade. These topics also have far-reaching effects in areas such as climate resilience, holistic liveability, sustainable mobility and equality.
To better serve our clients in these spaces, we are creating a new dedicated industry practice area – Travel, Cities & Infrastructure Practice Area (TCI PA). This practice will not only serve specific clients in these spaces (e.g., Construction, Real Estate, Shipping/Logistics, Airports, Airlines, Rail, Road, Leisure Travel) , but will also collaborate closely with our Public Sector practice and Infrastructure Investors sector. We believe that creating this practice area is another step forward in living our purpose – unlocking the potential of those who advance the world.
