Peter Morrison, RMJM’s Chief Executive, said: “Over the last year or so, we have restructured our business by pooling the talent of our international experts in the growth areas of education, health, science and transportation. This strategy is clearly paying off and this is a big win for our specialist education team. It’s also a very exciting project for us to work on as the Public Academy will uncover China’s next generation of entrepreneurs and enhance Suzhou’s economic and educational reputation.”
