Transitions – exciting news in the evolution of Bligh Tanner
We acknowledge the fantastic contribution of departing Director, David Hamlyn-Harris, and celebrate the appointment of Alan Hoban as Director.
David Hamlyn-Harris has been the Director (Water Engineering) at Bligh Tanner for 11 years. As the leader of the Water Group, he has helped place Bligh Tanner at the forefront of alternative decentralised water systems and played a central role in our most innovative and successful water management projects, including the The Ecovillage at Currumbin, South Bank Rainbank and Fitzgibbon Chase FiSH and PotaRoo. David has decided to step down as a Director so that he has more time for life outside of work, and in the interests of succession, though he will continue working in an active role as a Consultant to the business.
Alan Hoban has been appointed as Director (Environmental Engineering) of Bligh Tanner. Alan has played a key role at the firm over the last few years, helping our clients achieve successful outcomes on a number of important projects, including strategic policy work for state and local government, water cycle strategies for Western Sydney, innovative designs for land development projects, and, most recently, a complex project for the re-alignment of a section of Bundamba Creek. As a graduate of the Queensland Leadership program (run by Social Leadership Australia), he is excited to be guiding and collaborating with our talented staff to tackle complex challenges relating to water, climate change and urban environments. He looks forward to continuing to provide exceptional service and value to our clients.
I wish David well and thank him for an enormous contribution to the firm, and am really pleased to welcome Alan who I’m sure will continue to bring great value to the firm, along with, no doubt, an ongoing commitment to design and innovation.
