Faithful+Gould and Atkins have launched a new office in New Orleans, Louisiana, which was opened by His Royal Highness, The Duke of York, KG, KCVO, Special Representative for International Trade and Investment.
"Prince Andrew kindly offered his services to help us mark this important moment for the business," says Paul Wood, CEO Faithful+Gould. "This new office reflects our continuing commitment to the region."
During the private ceremony, The Duke met most of the Louisiana staff. "We have been providing our services to Louisiana clients for a number of years, so it was a natural progression to open operations in the area," explained Wood. "This office will support our increased workload and improve our ability to respond to the needs of the community."
The new office, at Two Lakeway, Metarie, LA 70002, is the latest addition to the US locations operated by Faithful+Gould and Atkins totalling 24. Current work in Louisiana is with both private and public sector clients, including assisting with Hurricanes Katrina and Rita relief efforts.
