About

Professional Summary

I have over 29 years’ experience in the construction and facility management industries specialising in operations & maintenance, project management, building services design, energy management, occupational health and safety, defects and fire safety.

I currently oversee the facilities management team for the Real Estate Management business in Canberra. I lead a team of 11 highly skilled facilities professionals who are committed to maximize the potential of property and to accelerate the success of our clients and assets under management. I work with many high profile government and private clients and currently service all of Colliers International ACT’s largest clients focusing on compliance and operational management.

I commenced an electrical apprenticeship with Kilpatrick Green (Melbourne) in 1991 and completed my A Grade licence at the end of 1994. During this time I worked on major industrial and commercial construction projects and was involved in maintenance programs for city buildings. Joining the Crown Casino in 1996 as a Property Services Officer, I worked on state of the art building systems, and gaming and restaurant equipment. A move to Canberra in 2000 saw me working with a major fire services company where I undertook the servicing and installation of fire and evacuation systems. Over the next five years, my responsibility extended to the delivery of all contracted fire system installations to ACT and surrounds. I joined Brookfield Multiplex in 2005, where I worked on the construction of the new 40,000m2 NLA Centrelink National Support Office. My responsibilities included ensuring the building was fully capable of meeting the complex contractual obligations and environmental targets, particularly Australian Building Greenhouse Rating of 4.5 stars (now known as NABERS Energy). I also managed the integration aspects of transition mid 2007 of the building from construction to operational use at the Centrelink National Support Office. At this time, my role changed to Senior Facilities Manager, with responsibility for the efficient delivery of all contracted facility management services, aspects of lease compliance for the Owner, financial performance, and management of the Facility Services Contract and Facilities Services Agreement.

I joined Colliers International in 2010 working with our major clients concentrating on new building handover, lease & building compliance, and also support the ACT region in building related matters.
