Aurecon has appointed Managing Director of Victoria and South Australia Angus Leitch as executive director to Aurecon

Angus Leitch said he was honoured to accept the position and continue supporting Aurecon in responding to infrastructure and advisory challenges of the future.

11 August 2020 – International engineering, design and advisory company Aurecon has appointed Managing Director of Victoria and South Australia Angus Leitch as executive director to the Aurecon group board.

In addition to his responsibility for the leadership and performance of the South Australia and Victoria business, Angus is also a member of Aurecon’s Australia & New Zealand Executive Leadership Team.

Angus’ extensive experience of issues and opportunities facing the engineering industry have been shaped by his 24-year career that has seen him lead joint venture team boards and project steering committees on major projects delivered by Aurecon across every market sector.

Aurecon Group Pty Limited (AGPL) Chair Mark Johnson welcomed Angus and credited his industry insights as a valuable asset to help guide board decisions as Aurecon continues to respond to challenges presented by COVID-19.

“Angus is no stranger to difficult times, having taken over as Managing Director of Western Australia immediately following the start of the mining downturn and successfully helping that side of the business achieve impressive profits in a challenging operating environment,” Mr. Johnson said.

“His knowledge of the conditions we are operating now in relation to COVID-19 and recommendations to adapt are second to none. We have also been impressed with Angus’ strong leadership and focus on setting up future skills sets in all areas of the business he has led in.”

Angus Leitch said he was honoured to accept the position and continue supporting Aurecon in responding to infrastructure and advisory challenges of the future.

“While these are interesting times that we are operating in, two areas of focus continue to remain very important to me. I am a passionate champion of diversity and inclusion and ensuring that we are continuing to increase the diversity of leaders and people within the engineering industry. I am also a champion of a culture of safety that is based on everyone having a right to finish their day safely,” Mr. Leitch said.

“I am looking forward to the chance to continue influencing the important decisions we are not only making for our company but also the communities that we are shaping and serving.”

Angus has a strong history in delivering large and complex projects, undertaking senior roles as project director on Australian and international projects. He has significant understanding of both design and project management, having filled senior roles on projects for clients that have delivered design services and project and program management services.

Angus is a member of Consult Australia’s Victoria Committee and previously was Chair of Consult Australia’s Western Australia committee.

Angus’ appointment (effective 31 August 2020) follows the appointments of Leeanne Bond and Aneetha de Silva to the AGPL Board in 2020.
