Stantec recently promoted Alexandros Grivas to Business Development Director for its international development division in Belgium. Grivas succeeds Laurent de Wouters d’Oplinter, who will continue his career with Stantec in a leading commercial role with the Canadian team in Quebec.
As head of business development, Grivas will provide leadership and hands-on facilitation of all business activities while leading a team of more than 20 business developers in Stantec’s offices in La Hulpe and Brussels. The team specializes in bringing together consortia and experts for donor-funded projects that support the development of communities across Europe, Africa, Asia, and South America. Key clients include international financial institutions such as the European Commission, the European Investment Bank, and other major development banks across the globe.
Grivas started with Stantec as an energy finance expert. He has a background in economics and 10 years of experience in formulating policy and regulatory interventions to help build better access to sustainable and cost-efficient energy in developing countries, especially in sub-Saharan Africa. In addition to his new role, he will remain involved in projects as part of Stantec’s Center of Expertise in Energy.
“In Alexandros we have found an excellent leader to take charge of our business development efforts in this market. Throughout his career, he has worked for international donors such as the European Union, the World Bank, and the African Development Bank. He has expertise in both the direct delivery of energy projects as well as services related to business development and project management. Our team and our clients will certainly benefit from his in-depth knowledge of international partnerships and the EU energy agenda in Africa,” says Christophe Leroy, Operations Director of Stantec in Belgium. “Alexandros follows in the footsteps of Laurent, who over the past decade has taken Stantec to a new level in the field of international development. We are thankful for Laurent’s efforts and confident that Alexandros will build on the achievements of his predecessor.”
“The international development team has built a strong portfolio of work and experience, and I am excited to continue that trend,” says Grivas. “My priorities will be to identify and develop new business opportunities to expand our brand’s presence, maintain a positive culture within the company, build trustworthy relationships with clients, and sustain a high-quality pipeline of business opportunities.”
Communities are fundamental. Whether around the corner or across the globe, they provide a foundation, a sense of place and of belonging. That's why at Stantec, we always design with community in mind.
We care about the communities we serve—because they're our communities too. This allows us to assess what's needed and connect our expertise, to appreciate nuances and envision what's never been considered, to bring together diverse perspectives so we can collaborate toward a shared success.
We're designers, engineers, scientists, and project managers, innovating together at the intersection of community, creativity, and client relationships. Balancing these priorities results in projects that advance the quality of life in communities across the globe.
