HOK announces new London chief

  • Comment

Daniel Hajjar has been revealed as the new managing principal of HOK’s London office

Hajjar has relocated from the practice’s Dubai office, where he had been heading up the AJ100 practice in the Middle East and Africa since 2010.

He joins HOK’s five other principals in London, including Larry Malcic, Robyn Gilmour, David King, Andrew Childs, and Richard Gammon.

Tom Robson, HOK’s chief operating officer, said: ‘Daniel is a proven leader in the design profession who has helped build our highly successful practice in the Middle East. Having collaborated with our London teams frequently, he knows the team and market well and is the ideal person to lead the practice’s efforts to provide the highest quality planning and design services.’

Hajjar added: ‘We are committed to ensuring that HOK’s office remains among the strongest design practices in London.’

The move comes after the global giant purchased US sports specialist 360 Architecture in a bid to move back into sports architecture (AJ 20.08.14).

The practice, ranked 36 in the latest AJ100 league table, has seen a number of moves in recent months, with director of performance Andrew Barraclough leaving for contractor Wates Group (AJ 07.07.14).

Last year practice development head Rob Firth also moved on.
