Prior to his current assignment, Jake led an international consortium contracted to deliver a key component of Riyadh city’s extensive and transformative metro project, the Riyadh Metro Project (RMP). He was accountable for delivering $11B of design and build scope comprising two metro lines, 39 new stations, and 63km of track—all within the confines of one of the world’s largest capital cities. As Senior Project Director, Jake was responsible for a $3B expansion for Manitoba Hydro and the 4 Manitoba First Nations, providing 4,400 gigawatt hours of renewable energy per year.

The discussion with Mr. Mumm will be focused on a brief history of his career before talking about Bechtel’s role at NEOM. Jake will give detailed background on the project (including how it fits in with Vision 2030) and explain how to create the right team to tackle the challenges of building infrastructure on this scale.
