"With the addition of Callison, ARCADIS has created a true leadership position in high-end design and architecture," said Neil McArthur, CEO of ARCADIS. "We will have a clear leading position in retail globally, a strong leadership position in mixed use/commercial globally, and will have a leading international design and architecture position in China."

John Jastrem, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of Callison, told Contract: “Like the many other companies in the ARCADIS family, we expect to maintain our brand identity, with the addition of the reference, ‘an ARCADIS company,’ added to our name. This approach will enable us to introduce other service providers in the ARCADIS family to our clients.”
