I’m the Concrete Manager for the Newcastle and Hunter Valley region of NSW. I joined the construction materials testing industry in 1994 and have worked across all aspects of laboratory management, from field testing to client result reporting and training. Over the last two years, I’ve moved into a concrete specialist role, where I’ve also been heavily involved in optimising Coffey’s labs and training our people. 

I’ve worked on several large projects including the Taree Bypass, Taree to Coopernook Duplication and Sewerage Treatment Works at Forster and Bulahdelah.  More recently I’ve been working as the Laboratory Manager for the National Air Combat Capability project at the Royal Australian Air Force (RAAF) base in Williamtown NSW – including testing for new runways and taxi ways.

Through building client relationships and providing excellence in testing services I’ve been able to work on many large scale infrastructure projects, and have enjoyed up-skilling our people to do the same.
