Angus Foley, Practice Group Head, APAC, Transport & Infrastructure commented:
"We are thrilled to welcome Bree to our Infrastructure practice in Sydney. Bree is a consummate professional with impressive industry expertise in both the transport and energy sectors. She is a versatile practitioner who will provide a strong technical capability in the design and construction procurement aspect of the practice and also brings additional knowledge and contacts in the Asian markets, plus language expertise."
Sydney office managing partner, Harvey Weaver added:
"Bree complements our team in Sydney well and her depth of international experience and versatility will provide a great deal of value for clients. Bree has acted for high profile Asian, European and US clients on power (conventional, renewables and transmission), oil & gas, water & waste and transport projects and on commercial property developments across Australia, Asia, the Middle East, Africa, Europe and the Americas. Her addition therefore enhances the strength of our infrastructure team both domestically and from a global perspective."
