SPONSOR: Kriston Symons, Managing Director - Buildings and Places Australia and New Zealand -AECOM Australia Pty Ltd
I commenced my career eleven years ago working in the fire, mechanical and structural disciplines of building services engineering. I was project manager and/or lead engineer in several significant government and health projects, including Perth Stadium, the Victorian Comprehensive Cancer Centre and the New Children’s’ Hospital (WA). Working with reputable clients such as Major Projects Victoria and the West Australian Department of Finance, my passion for team management grew. Currently, I’m privileged to lead the Fire Protection and Hydraulic Team at Aecom. I love challenging myself technically, working on non-standard projects and keeping abreast of cutting edge research. As a Team Leader, I am creative and solution-focused, creating a workplace where staff enjoyment and dedication is paramount. I want to create change and see these changes implemented. If I look after my staff, they will look after their clients: a perfect outcome.
