Portfolio of Moein Varaei:
Setting Up of a Regional Branch of a International Engineering Cosulting Firm
Successfully set up a new branch and a regional Infrastructure hub of a multi-national organisation in UAE. In addition to the office set up, mandate included business development, bidding, contracts negotiations with Clients, ensuring adequate resources and talented staff were recruited and made available for all projects, and leading all projects as a project director.
The organisation was securely established in the regional market and worked on numerous high-profile projects in the region.
Value Engineering For An Infrastructure Design
Successfully led the value engineering efforts that resulted in a AU$900 million reduction in the construction cost of a brand-new international airport.
Revival of The Marine Department of a Multi-national Organisation
The revival efforts required us to mend Client relationships, recruit the much-needed talented technical staff, secure the financial viability of the department, and ensure all outstanding project deliverables were submitted. These were all successfully achieved and the department was back on tracks again.
Rescuing a High-Profile Infrastructure Project
When an international multi-disciplinary organisation with branches in major cities in Australia and overseas faced major challenges with one of its major projects (construction cost - AU$18b), Moein was brought in to support the VP of operations in managing this project, mending the relationship with the client, motivating and managing the team to remain focused on finishing the project, and negotiating the fee for the remaining half of the project that had been put on hold by the client.
All of the above-mentioned tasks were successfully completed and the project was put back on track.
Initiated, managed and were instrumental to the success of a multi-national engineering consultancy firm’s ISO 9001 Certification.
