Black & Veatch has announced that Andy Kwok will transition to lead the company’s Hong Kong water business operations, starting January 1, 2018. He will replace Alan Man, who will be retiring at the end of the year.

“Andy is well positioned to lead our Hong Kong office into the future, bringing invaluable project insights from Hong Kong and Mainland China. Alan, in turn, leaves behind a legacy of project innovation and talent throughout our operation, and we wish him the best in his future endeavors,” said Cindy Wallis-Lage, President of Black & Veatch’s water business.

Kwok is a Project Director with 24 years of overall infrastructure experience. He joined Black & Veatch after graduation from the University of Hong Kong in 1993. Over the years, Kwok has participated in the implementation of a wide range of urban infrastructure projects in Mainland China and Hong Kong across water supply, sewerage and drainage as well as new town development. In addition to his role in Hong Kong, Kwok was instrumental in setting up Black & Veatch's water business operation in Shenzhen.

Since its first project in Hong Kong in 1930, Black & Veatch has been stitching together the fabric of the city’s infrastructure, Kwok reflected.

“Hong Kong continues to evolve and transition to a smarter, more sustainable future-ready city. Our work on Hong Kong’s first underground service reservoir built on the University of Hong Kong’s campus, Tai Po Water Treatment Works and the Flood Storage Schemes at Tai Hang Tung and Happy Valley are examples of how our projects shape the lives of people in Hong Kong," said Kwok.

The Hong Kong team is looking forward to serving clients from its new, expanded office space: 43/F, AIA Kowloon Tower, 100 How Ming Street, Kowloon, Hong Kong.

  • Black & Veatch has operated in Hong Kong since 1930 and has been involved in developing all of Hong Kong’s impounding reservoirs and many other major water infrastructure projects. It has received numerous international awards for the innovation and iconic works it has delivered in Hong Kong.
