FCC general manager to speak at ICEF
04 June 2013
Miguel Jurado Fernández, the general manager of Spanish contractor FCC Construcción, will speak at this year’s International Construction Economic Forum (ICEF).
FCC Construcción is the leading construction company in Spain in both project volume and international revenue. It is part of the FCC Group, which was ranked number 17 in International Construction’s 2012 Global Top 200 list of the largest contractors in the world.
Mr Jurado Fernández joined FCC in 1988 and held the positions of head of production, site manager and production manager. In March 1997, he joined FCC’s water management company Aqualia, where he held several positions in operational management before being appointed vice president in 2005, continuing in this role until 2013.
In March 2013, he was named general manager of FCC Construcción, replacing Avelino Acero Díaz who was appointed corporate manager.
ICEF will run from 20 to 22 November at the Hotel Okura in Amsterdam, the Netherlands. The conference, networking event and awards dinner will focus on core themes of trends and forecasts in the global construction industry, project finance, successful project management and delivery, equipment technology and asset management.
The programme is designed to appeal to a broad range of executives and senior managers throughout the construction industry from disciplines such as contracting, equipment manufacture, materials production, equipment rental, finance, project management and consultancy.
The evening of 21 November will also see a gala dinner and the award of prizes in nine categories for outstanding performance in the construction industry. The most sought-after is expected to be the International Construction Project of the Year award, which will recognise a scheme worth US$ 100 million or more, of international significance.
