Being a Project Director on a range of structural, transport, property, demolition, rail infrastructure, power supply, gas transmission, due diligence, resource and mineral processing infrastructure projects, Greg has also developed complementary skills in managing risk, reliance and probity on complex projects. Before taking up his current appointment in western Sydney, Greg was responsible for the Structures, Maritime and Materials Group which recruited three graduates a year.
Greg is passionate about creating leadership opportunities for junior engineers, balancing this with the discipline of engineering through project management.
