Engineering Veteran to Lead Syska Hennessy's Global FMCx Practice
Consulting, engineering and commissioning firm Syska Hennessy has announced the appointment of Christopher Walsh, an engineering and building automation veteran with over two decades of experience, as head of its global facilities management and commissioning (FMCx) practice.
Mr. Walsh previously served as Operations Manager with Syska's South-eastern United States critical facilities practice where he was responsible for infrastructure replacement and modernisation projects, and providing project management support for the installation of mechanical and electrical (M&E) systems.
With a wealth of consultant engineering as well as client-side experience, he is also credited with transforming the group's approach to project management through the introduction of new systems and processes that have helped to cement its reputation as a leading provider of engineering services focused on facilities management.

"Chris has taken on increasing responsibility for FMCx activities in addition to his role as Southeast region leader over the past 5 years. He is adept at developing and motivating internal relationships, as well as nurturing client relationships. These abilities position him well to elevate an already-strong group of professionals to reach a new benchmark of FMCx practice delivery across the global marketplace".
