ACCIONA says it has appointed Robert M. Park, president of the company's Infrastructure division in Canada since 2007 and area director for North America, to the newly created position of president for the company's Canadian businesses.

Park has more than 30 years of experience in the development and management of infrastructure projects in Europe, Asia, the Middle East and North America. He joined ACCIONA in 1993 in Hong Kong, where he was general manager, project director and area director of international construction. He moved to Canada in 2007 to establish the head office for ACCIONA Infrastructure in Canada.

In his new role, Park will be responsible for deepening the company’s institutional links with government entities, financial institutions and business partners in Canada. His appointment takes effect immediately.

In addition, Purificacion Torreblanca will move to Canada to lead the company’s infrastructure team. She joined ACCIONA in 1994 and has been director of ACCIONA Infrastructure in Andalusia, Spain, since 2006.

Canada is a strategic market for ACCIONA, accounting for 8% of the company’s global construction business and 44% of its concessions portfolio.
