Driver Group PLC ("Driver"), the global professional services consultancy to the construction and engineering industries, today announces that it has concluded a strategic partnership with Africa's leading claims and dispute resolution consultancy, EVRA Consulting (PTY) Ltd ("EVRA"), headquartered in Johannesburg. The partnership combines the services and skill sets of Driver Group's Diales experts with EVRA's relationships and network to bring the benefits of Expert commissions to clients across the African continent.


Driver also announces the strengthening of its Middle East presence with the appointment in Dubai of David Merritt, a well-known Quantum Expert with over 35 years' experience in the construction and engineering sectors.


Mark Wheeler, Chief Executive Officer of Driver Group, said: "I am delighted that Driver has been able to forge a strategically important partnership with Africa's premier claims and dispute business. This joint offering will enable us to bring our service, skills and expertise to 54 national markets across Africa, all of which will benefit from our specialist, higher margin Diales services and many of which we have never hitherto been able to access. In the Middle East, our appointment of David Merritt, an acknowledged industry Expert, strengthens our competitive position locally, and brings additional benefits to our clients right across the region."
