Meet our expert, Chris Williams
A chartered accountant with 20 years’ experience within the PPP/P3 sector, Chris joined Invesis as a finance manager in 2005 following seven years with PwC in Edinburgh and London. He was appointed Investments Director in 2009 before becoming Finance Director in 2016 and Chief Executive Director in November 2022. Chris was the creator and director responsible for BAM PPP PGGM Joint Venture since its inception in 2011, prior to the business’ renaming as Invesis.
Invesis is an ambitious, worldwide player in the global infrastructure investment market and together with CIO and COO, Chris is responsible for the leadership, strategic direction and management of all facets of the Invesis business.
“PPP/P3 was created with a long-term view in mind, which we have embedded into our strategy to fully appreciate and align with our clients’ requirements. This allows us to focus on building long-term relationships based on trust and deliverability. Project selection and viability are key for us – we avoid a scattergun approach and target projects where we feel there is value, appropriate risk and reward, and the right clients, partners, and supply chain to work with. At Invesis, we have the people, the partnerships, and the performance to sustainably grow our portfolio. Importantly, we also have fun and enjoy the journey along the way.”
Chris is married with three children and is a keen sports enthusiast. He is a member of the West Lothian Triathlon Club and enjoys getting out on his bike. His frustrations include watching Edinburgh Rugby as a season ticket holder and varying success on the golf course.
