He is an experienced project and program manager, certified as having managed projects over US $10 million in fees.
Yuval has worked on several award winning transactions, including airports (technical advisor to the winning consortium on the first P3 of a U.S. FAA-controlled airport); ports (the largest syndicated financing of the four largest container terminals in North America); rail (the first P3 of a commuter rail project in the U.S.); roads (the first P3s in Virginia and California); water desalination facilities (the first one financed in South America); and social (vertical) infrastructure (the first county courthouse P3 in the U.S.).
