RICS is pleased to announce the appointment of Nimish Gupta FRICS as Managing Director for South Asia, with effect from 1 August 2018.
The role will continue building on RICS’ current footprint in promoting the adoption of RICS’ professional standards and assurance regime in India’s growing real estate, valuation and construction sectors. Recent changes in the regulatory landscape for real estate and valuation in India provide a more progressive operating environment for professionalism. RICS will continue to offer thought-leadership and engage with policymakers, end users, service providers, employers, and practitioners, to foster trust in the built environment through enforced standards, transparency and accountability.
With over 22 years' experience in real estate, construction, education training and technology adoption, Nimish built up a career within the built environment sector after graduating as an engineer from the National Institute of Technology. He started work at Larsen & Toubro, the largest construction company in India, and has since held senior positions within high-profile real estate and construction organisations, such as Vipul Modern, a leading construction services provider, Laing O'Rourke, and Lendlease.
Nimish is a chartered surveyor himself and has been closely associated with RICS since 2005. He played an integral role in the formation of the vision, planning and implementation of RICS South Asia, and was among the first to qualify as an RICS Fellow in India.
For the last five years, Nimish has been involved in educating, training and mentoring the next generation of built-environment professionals at the School of the Built Environment. He joins RICS from Qonqests Technical Solutions, a fast-growing organisation in the project management, cost management and quantity surveying space.
I am honoured and excited to be part of the RICS Asia-Pacific Leadership Team, and to be part of an organisation shaping the future through professional standards, innovation and thought-leadership. I look forward to driving new ideas, products and services to raise the bar on our strategy, performance and industry recognition in South Asia.
