He is a professionally Certified Mechanical Engineer with extensive experience in leading service delivery, operations and maintenance activities and optimising asset contribution to business outcomes; in large multi-facetted infrastructure and asset intensive businesses. Optimising asset performance has always been his focus and he has been able to apply this in leading operations and asset management on billion-dollar projects. His track record, which can be fully substantiated through referencing, reflects consistent success in all these areas over decades.
His work on asset whole-of-life performance resulted from being the “operator” and recipient of infrastructure that he commissioned and handed over. This resulted in what has been defined as “Value Leakage” and led him to deeper involvement in driving a more holistic approach to managing assets across all lifecycle phases, based on total cost of ownership.
He has published professional papers on Leadership, Service Levels, Asset Management, Leading Successful Change and Outsourcing/Privatisation of Public Sector Assets. His technical and leadership competence with many years of mentoring provides opportunity for imparting knowledge and capabilities to others.
