Blue Projects appoints France Country Leader


Blue Projects is delighted to announce the appointment of Pierre Ridel as Country Leader for France, where we have recently opened a new office in Nantes. The new location allows Blue Projects to leverage its strong position in the industrial sector and demonstrates its commitment to maintain and expand its competences and expertise to address the diverse engineering and project management needs of its clients.

As we grew over the past 10 years from a local to a global company – with offices in 12 countries and projects in 27 – so did the demands of our clients, which is why we decided to open a new office in France, where we had already delivered projects. This will enable Blue Projects to provide better services, become more responsive to existing clients, and build on our successful working relationships. Pierre’s appointment as Country Leader is in line with our strategy to increase our footprint in France; his experience with multi-million dollar developments and previous collaboration with Blue Projects make him a perfect fit for the job.
