Get in touch

I’m a Project Director and lead Coffey’s Project Management business in Newcastle and NSW North which includes responsibility for financial performance, operations and sales.

With over 25 years of local and international experience in the property, finance and infrastructure sectors, I’ve held senior executive roles in Government, private industry and international engineering consultancies.

As a senior leader with the ability to develop, drive and implement the delivery of solutions on large complex projects I consistently achieve my client’s objectives, timeframes and targets. I have a proven track record of aligning internal and external stakeholders to develop strategic relationships to achieve common goals. I’ve successfully delivered many property projects with positive outcomes for all stakeholders. My enthusiasm and dedication to my work guarantees a successful outcome for all my projects. 

Having previously worked as a senior executive for the NSW Government, within Property NSW, Major Projects and Commercial Transactions and as a property finance specialist in the financial sector I have a unique understanding of the property property development and construction process from inception to completion.

My significant experience across the property infrastructure sector includes delivering the assessment and review of a $200m regional commercial office portfolio that included the re-design for refurbishment for the “Agile Workspace” NSW Government strategy implementation. During my tenure at Property NSW I provided strategic asset assessment for the NSW Department of Education and conducted high level due diligence and developed a strategic direction for each identified target portfolio for NSW Schools Infrastructure.  I’ve led the regional land activation program for Industry NSW and assessed and reviewed Tafe NSW property portfolio that included schools, residential and industrial development sites and identified value uplift opportunities and divested surplus properties.  

I’m privileged to lead the Newcastle Project Management business to contribute to ongoing growth, participating in the continual improvement and to providing our clients with the best possible service whilst enjoying the unique culture we have at Coffey.

I’m proud to work at Coffey where actively making a difference for our clients and for the people I work with truly counts.
