What is your role in the company?

I lead the strategy and business development function for Cardno’s Asia Pacific region. This involves the implementation of clear strategic plans for key market and discipline areas to enable long term, sustained growth for the region. I also oversee all major project pursuits across the region.

What are the benefits of being a CEDA member for your company?

As an independent organisation, CEDA provides an excellent platform to discuss and research the various economic and social issues affecting Australia. CEDA’s cross-sector membership base also affords Cardno access to a broad range of organisations.

What are your company's top priorities for the next year?

Cardno’s top priority is always to deliver the best possible service to our clients here in Australia and around the world. We also continue to pursue quality work and build technical capability in the areas that will complement our existing experience and expertise. In the Asia Pacific region we look forward to continued growth in our transport infrastructure and defence sectors as well as further developing our environment practice.

How does CEDA help your company achieve its agenda?

CEDA’s leading research provides us with invaluable insight into issues affecting our business. Its position as an independent organisation also helps to implement reform in areas that matter to the way we operate.
