23 March 2015 - Aurecon has appointed Louise Adams to lead its operations in Melbourne and Adelaide. In this Delivery Centre Manager role she will run one of the company’s largest delivery centres in Australia.
Louise is currently Country Manager in the United Arab Emirates, responsible for Aurecon’s operations in both Dubai and Abu Dhabi.
William Cox, Managing Director, ANZ, said, “I know that Louise will make an excellent leader for our Adelaide/Melbourne Delivery Centre, she is a talented engineer and project manager with a proven track record in effective leadership, often in challenging environments.

She was appointed to the Aurecon Group Pty Limited (AGPL) Board in June 2013 in recognition of her impressive leadership and analytical capabilities.

The South Australian and Victorian markets offer many opportunities for Aurecon and I look forward to working with the entire team to continue to protect and grow our market share.”
