Anand is Managing Director of Barker Mohandas Middle East, and in joining us in 2010 added 30 years of very diverse elevator experience in the Middle East and India. Anand has assisted our USA firm with very large regional projects such as the King Abdulaziz International Airport near Jeddah, and he has a long list of other projects he has led directly in the Middle East since joining us.

Prior to joining us he led vertical transportation consulting for WS Atkins & Partners Overseas for the Middle East and India, where he provided a multidisciplinary approach for all projects, especially high-rise and complex projects. His cross-discipline approach also resulted in additional growth for the firm’s fire safety and acoustical engineering disciplines.

Anand began his elevator career in 1981 at Otis in India, as graduate engineer trainee. This led to a successful 14 year period in various locations in India. Prior to moving to the Middle East in 1999, he led Western Region operations in India for Kone from 1994-1998, where he was involved with a number of major projects in Mumbai.
