Mehdi Belarbi graduated in Civil Engineering at ENPC University at which point he began his career on site as a construction manager, working his way up to project manager before moving into operations management.
He started his professional career working at Eiffage, a global construction company from 2003 to 2005. Next, he went on to Bouygues Group, where he spent 14 years working for them across Paris, London and Vancouver before moving to ISG as operations director.
Since joining ISG in December 2017, Mehdi has been supporting ISG in France on their journey to expansion and growing their capability able to support larger fit out projects, whilst working in close conjunction with the team in London on strategic global clients – seeing the average project size increase significantly in the region.
Key areas of focus for Mehdi in 2018 were bringing increased structure and process to operations thereby laying the foundations for growth. Part of these efforts included a focus on attracting the best talent to the business to help further drive efficiencies.
Mehdi has thrived in this fast-paced role, where he spends much of his time in client facing positions as well as working closely with the estimating teams to close out deals. Since his time with the business Mehdi has enjoyed seeing a team flourish that are willing the business to do well and they have developed a great sense of morale in this mission.
In his own time Mehdi is busy with his family and keeping active in his spare time (when he finds it!) and plays soccer on the weekend and supporting local Parisian team - PSG.
