What will you bring to the Meinhardt team in Victoria and then Nationally?
After several years working abroad, I hope to bring an International perspective across a broad range of disciplines and business (Country and Client) environments (both public and private). By sharing my local and international experience, I plan to provide key leadership support to the Melbourne Team and really develop the National Infrastructure Group.
What do you hope to achieve?
My overall goal will be to work with all teams, to not only build upon their strengths but to look for the opportunities that make us stand out. In addition to this, I hope to build and establish Meinhardt’s Infrastructure capability within the Australian Market. Lastly, I look forward to working with the National Leadership Team to establish Meinhardt as a preferred employer of Australia’s best talent.
Within the Australian market, where do you see the opportunities?
The opportunities in this current climate are endless, it’s what you make of them that is your point of difference. If I had to identify a few though, my top picks would be:
- Large scale infrastructure projects (ie. Rail, Aviation & Defence)
- Urban Development
- Transportation (ie. Traffic & Roads)
- Environmental & Waste Management (ie. Renewables and Energy from Waste)
