Heidi’s extensive experience in renewables will further strengthen Aurecon’s capabilities in wind, solar, hydro and biomass, and the integration of these technologies into the overall energy system.

22 July 2019 – Global engineering, advisory and design company Aurecon has appointed energy leader Heidi Sick as its Client Director, Energy, Australia & New Zealand.

Heidi brings significant experience as a leader and advisor to the energy sector across many geographies and roles. Her project and people management expertise across the complete life-cycle of major complex energy projects will help Aurecon’s clients navigate the fast-paced transition to a cleaner, cheaper and more reliable energy future.

As the need for commercialising sustainable energy sources, improving infrastructure and improving efficiency accelerates, Heidi’s extensive experience in renewables will further strengthen Aurecon’s capabilities in wind, solar, hydro and biomass, and the integration of these technologies into the overall energy system.

“One of the things that attracted me to the role with Aurecon was the game-changing solutions and new capabilities they are at the forefront of developing to meet future energy needs,” said Heidi.

Aurecon’s Managing Director, Energy, Resources and Manufacturing, Paul Gleeson said that experts like Heidi bring subject matter expertise and advisory capabilities to major growth markets for Aurecon.

“We are delighted to welcome Heidi into our team. Appointing the right people is one of the steps to ensure our teams are agile and focused on clients’ most significant energy challenges.”

Heidi has been recognised as an outstanding leader in the renewable sector deserving wider public recognition. Her experience leading and inspiring high-performing teams has led to her being awarded the inaugural 2019 Clean Energy Council and Monash University Women in Renewables Your Leadership Voice scholarship. A scholarship that recognises and cultivates the leadership potential of extraordinary women in the clean energy industry.

A member of the technical advisory panel to the Australian Renewable Energy Agency, Heidi’s leadership and commitment in transitioning to a clean energy future is founded in her purpose to make a positive impact.

“Coming from a diverse career background including pharma, biotech and oil and gas I recognised early on that I wanted to make a difference, from making life-saving drugs, reducing emissions for the oil and gas industry to transitioning the energy sector to a low carbon future, my purpose has remained the same,” said Heidi.
