Aurecon announces new CEO

Global engineering and infrastructure advisory company Aurecon today announced the appointment of Managing Director Australia and New Zealand William Cox as its new Global Chief Executive Officer to lead the organisation’s rapid growth and continuing diversification across Digital, Advisory and Asia.

Effective from 1 February 2019, Cox will be based in Sydney. His appointment marks the end of current Aurecon CEO Giam Swiegers’ successful fixed four-year term, which saw the company more than double its profits since 2015.

“This is a terrific opportunity to steer Aurecon during a time of significant growth and change for our industry. Incredible technologies are helping us plan and build infrastructure in a way never seen before, truly changing the way we engineer, design and advise,” said Cox.

“My focus areas for the immediate future are to consolidate and continue the growth trajectory in Digital, Advisory, and in Asia where we see immense potential in transport infrastructure, the built environment and fast-growing data centre sector.”

Cox is a civil engineer with over 30 years’ experience in transport, aviation and infrastructure across Australia and the UK.

Aurecon Chairman, Teddy Daka, said, “William is renowned as one of our industry’s most respected leaders and has delivered operational excellence for Aurecon for more than 26 years. His leadership of ANZ saw the region’s revenue increase by 22 per cent since 2015. William’s extensive experience at Aurecon has ensured that he has a deep understanding of our business, operating environment, our clients and competitors.
