Since my appointment, I’ve refocused Coffey on our strengths, so the extraordinary talent within our business can bring their ingenuity to bear on solving clients’ problems.

    I’ve led the company through three years of significant change, reducing our costs by $35 million in the process. I’m really proud that we’ve improved our client focus and recently won Best Consulting Engineering Firm (revenue greater $200 million) at the BRW Client Choice Awards.

    Before I joined Coffey I had a 15 year executive career with Boral Limited, culminating in the role of Executive General Manager for their Australian Construction and Materials business in 2004. My experience with Boral shows I know what it takes to create a lasting career in a changing market.

    I’ve also worked for the Boston Consulting Group where I provided specialist strategic advice to high profile organisations across a wide range of industries and countries. This gave me the tools to lead and direct strategic programs – and create positive and lasting change for turnaround businesses

    By trade, I’m a geotechnical engineer with more than 25 years’ experience working in engineering, consulting and senior management roles. I’ve worked around the world and understand that when you’re in the field, experience counts.

    I believe that, when brilliant people get the right support – whether that’s training, equipment or systems – it frees them up to think. That’s when you get innovation. And that’s when what we do at Coffey truly makes a difference.

    An engineer by trade, I’ve had more than 20 years of senior management experience in the construction materials industry, including five years in my previous role as General Manager SEQ Concrete at Holcim. In this role, I led the integration of a zeroHarm culture through a focus on behaviour, accountability, hazard identification and close out.

Often our clients’ projects are being developed in places where ground conditions are unknown or undocumented. We provide them with deep insights into the ground conditions, and properties of the materials they’re dealing with, ensuring the integrity, safety and optimal engineering design and construction.
