JAMES PHILLIS is the new Chief Executive Officer, SMEC ANZ, following the appointment of Hari Poologasundram as CEO SMEC and CEO International, Surbana Jurong Group in March.
Phillis will be responsible for the executive leadership and performance of SMEC’s ANZ division.
SMEC says Phillis’s appointment comes at a key time of business transformation as the company looks to drive growth through a strong presence in the Australian and New Zealand markets and partnerships with parent company Surbana Jurong Group and sister company, Brisbane-based Robert Bird Group (RBG), expanding capabilities, expertise and reach.
Phillis has more than 30 years’ experience leading international engineering consultancies. He holds a Bachelor of Engineering from University of Sydney and a Master of Business Administration from Southern Cross University.
