Arcadis chief executive Harrie Noy to step down

Arcadis chief executive Harrie Noy has announced his decision to step down in May after 12 years at the helm.

Noy has overseen a period of rapid expansion for the Dutch consultant, culminating last year in the acquisition of cost consultant EC Harris. Since 2000, revenues have increased from €750M (£630M) to £1.9bn and the number of employees from 7,500 to almost 19,000.

Noy will be succeeded by Neil McArthur, a civil and mechanical engineer who led the takeover of EC Harris.

“Having led the company for 12 years it is time to pass on the helm, so I get room to pursue other personal interests and worthwhile activities”, said Noy. “I look back with great satisfaction at what has been achieved.”

Arcadis supervisory board chairman Rijnhard van Tets said McArthur was an “excellent successor”. “He brings a unique combination of technical background, broad strategic and operational experience, an international track record and proven leadership qualities in a top professional services company,” said van Tets.
