“Narsingh has deep industry knowledge and a proven track record in helping clients address rapidly changing market conditions,” said Mario Azar, Black & Veatch’s Chairman & CEO. “As Asia focuses on megatrends reshaping the world including decarbonization, power grid resiliency, instant communication, clean transportation, water scarcity and cybersecurity, his leadership and our diverse portfolio of solutions will help clients address their biggest challenges.”
