Aligning leadership of Asia, Australia and New Zealand businesses
Anooj Oodit has been appointed as Managing Director for our Asia business, expanding his remit to align the leadership of this key region with operations across Australia and New Zealand.
He takes on the role following the retirement of Duncan Stone, who has worked for us for 31 years and successfully led the business in Asia since 2008.
Anooj will continue to also head up our Australia and New Zealand business, which has seen 60 percent expansion in revenue since 2014.
The shared geographical leadership responds to growing synergies between the Asia-Pacific economies of China, South East Asia, India and Oceania – including the development of regionalised supply chains for materials, construction and consultancy services.
We have also grown our capability on major infrastructure projects in the region – including Sydney Metro, Inland Rail and Metronet – which will complement our existing expertise across Asia where we are delivering on world-leading programmes at Hong Kong Airport and Virgin Hyperloop in Mumbai.
Commenting on Duncan’s retirement and Anooj’s appointment, Vincent Clancy, Chairman and Chief Executive said:
“I would like to thank Duncan for the tremendous impact he has had at Turner & Townsend over a highly successful 30-year career in which he has helped to significantly expand our operations across the region.
“Anooj’s experience across 22 years with Turner & Townsend includes advising on major projects and he has led the successful expansion in Australia and New Zealand. The Managing Director role will allow Anooj to bring this experience and insight to the whole of the Asia business while continuing to lead our Australia and New Zealand operations to help us unlock further growth."
Commenting on the new role, Anooj Oodit, Managing Director for Asia Pacific said:
“The opportunity to shape a new direction for communities and their economies in the wake of the COVID-19 pandemic is significant. Strengthening regional linkages and sharing expertise will be important to the delivery of sustainable, high-performing programmes.
“Our combined team of over 1,300 people across 30 offices will enable us to aggregate this capability – supporting clients with a blend of global best practice and regional expertise.”
