Construction consultancy Soben has further expanded its Latin American operations with the launch of its Mexico office, supported by a new senior appointment.

The expansion is part of the East Kilbride-headquartered organisation’s plans for growth, targeting 1,000 people globally by 2027 to support extensive growth in its current locations and to expand into additional territories.

Marco Mora, who joins the consultancy in the role of director, will play a leading role in the development of Soben in Mexico. Soben has identified the city of Queretaro as the ideal location to establish a regional hub where they can build a strong presence in Mexico.

Marco joins Soben from CBRE, where he led a project management team that handled large corporate construction projects. He retained a robust approach focusing on health and safety, quality, budget, and time delivery control.

With over 25 years of experience in the construction industry working for global organisations throughout Mexico and the US, Marco has overseen more than 80 industrial and commercial projects relating to renewable energy and sustainability developments.

Marco said: “I am happy to be part of Soben’s growing team, and this is a new and exciting challenge for me which I am really looking forward to.

“I will work hard to develop relationships and lead Soben’s team in Mexico to create new business opportunities to help us meet our ambitious growth targets for LATAM.”

Joe Cusick, CEO of Americas, added: “I am delighted to welcome Marco to the team who will head up the next phase of our development plans in the LATAM region.

“We have big plans for Queretaro, and we aim to create a sustainable business and become the go-to consultancy in the region where local talent can support our global reach.

“With Marco’s impressive knowledge and experience, as well as his desire for success, we will make great strides in achieving our long-term business objectives.

“The team across the Americas region is quickly growing, which coincides with our recent new contract wins and my team and I are very excited about the future of Soben in both LATAM and North America.”

In 2021, Soben launched its global expansion unveiling its North America office. Headquartered in Chicago, the US operation is led by Joe Cusick, leading a team of experienced consultants serving clients across North America, Mexico, and Chile.

In January 2022, Soben’s Asia office was launched in Singapore with plans to grow across the region to align Soben’s capability with client demand.
