After 25 years in Dubai Brian Dryburgh is moving to Manila to oversee the development of Black & White in the Asia-Pacific region.

“There are many similarities between Dubai’s economic growth and that of cities such as Singapore or Hong Kong. Developing cities go through the “up-down” cycles that Dubai’s construction market has also gone through over the last 25 years as its economy matures, but Dubai’s general trend, as with Hong Kong and Singapore, has obviously been on a massive upward trajectory which will continue. I’ve experienced it growing from a population of a half a million in 1993 to nearly six million in 2019 and into an “Alpha City” joining the likes of cities including Singapore, Hong Kong, Shanghai and Beijing – it’s been an amazing journey” says Brian.

Initially Brian will focus on the development of our Singapore office and work closely with the dedicated Singapore Director. Our development into Asia-Pacific is another key milestone of our Strategic Growth Plan and we are looking forward to Brian playing a key role in this next chapter of Black & White’s growth story.
