Get in touch

I’m a Project Director and lead Coffey’s Project Management business in Brisbane. My responsibilities include the financial and operational performance of my team. 

I have a diverse professional services background gained from over 25 years of industry experience and am skilled in partnering with leaders in private industry and the public sector at Federal, State and Local Government levels. My experience includes the successful delivery of capital works programs in the Defence, aviation, energy, civil infrastructure, health, education and transport logistics sectors. 

With extensive experience in managing and enhancing the capability of teams I can quickly build relationships to inform and influence stakeholders at multiple levels. And I take pride in my ability to bring new ideas and processes to the team that drive change in the delivery of programs and projects.

I’ve successfully developed and delivered several large and complex capital programs in Australia using innovative project and program management methodologies for rapid planning and implementation of these programs.

At Coffey I’ve successfully managed and delivered multiple programs and projects simultaneously, remaining customer focused in a rapidly changing environment.  

As the Project Director for Coffey’s PFAS response engagements on RAAF Base Williamtown, RAAF Base Tindal and Country Fire Authority Fiskville, I addressed the challenges faced by our clients by fostering a relationship of collaboration between Project Management professionals across multiple regional and metropolitan site locations.

I’m proud to be part of Coffey where along with my team I can continue to provide technical excellence and deliver innovative, optimised solutions to our clients that ensure on time and on budget project delivery.
