Aurecon’s Managing Director – Infrastructure, Ben Stapleton, said “Kevin’s role covers a wide scope of challenges and services in the rapidly evolving industry, such as water security, resilient and water smart cities and regions.

Kevin is looking forward to making a real impact on the future by helping communities design better water amenities in the face of unique challenges facing each market.

“In Australia, the water industry is undergoing a real change, evolving from a focus on asset management to delivering better services and value to their customers. One of my focus areas will be working with governments, water utilities and customers to shift from simply designing solutions to imagining solutions customers will value,” said Kevin.

“In Africa, we’ll be concentrating on helping solve water sanitation and security challenges, questioning how we can harness solution capabilities on a global scale plus deliver the right scale for local communities.”

“Asia is a key growth geography for Aurecon, given the number of emerging markets where water security is a key issue, and there is a need to invest in new dams, recycled water and desalination. We will focus on creating innovative solutions to deliver 21st century water services for customers with ageing infrastructure,” commented Kevin.

Kevin was attracted to work at Aurecon by the company vision of ‘bringing ideas to life’, which resonates strongly with him. “This concept challenges people on what we can do to make a difference and encourages us to think how we can achieve a safer and healthier world where everyone has rapid and secure access to clean water,” he added.
