Outgoing Infrastructure Australia CEO Philip Davies will join Deloitte Australia as a Financial Advisory partner in its infrastructure team in September, following the end of his three-year term with the independent infrastructure advisory body.
Luke Houghton, Deloitte Asia Pacific Leader for Infrastructure and Capital Projects, welcomed Mr. Davies’ appointment.
“We are thrilled to have Philip join our firm and our team. As a highly qualified engineer and infrastructure expert with over 25 years’ experience, he brings a unique set of skills coupled with broad technical understanding in planning and economics, underpinned by his global experience in engineering, construction, and the operation of infrastructure assets.
“Given his exceptional understanding of the policies, strategies and challenges in implementing whole of asset life-cycle reform, which applies across all infrastructure-related services, Philip will play a critical role with our clients, especially in the cities and transport reform space.”
Before joining Infrastructure Australia, Mr. Davies established and led AECOM’s Infrastructure Advisory Asia Pacific business. Prior to this, he spent a decade in the UK and Japan, including six years at Deloitte’s UK member firm, where he worked with Transport for London to introduce the congestion-charging scheme into central London.
He subsequently joined Transport for London as a Director. He was also a leader in the development of intelligent transport systems solutions and the use of real-time data to inform proactive operational decisions as well as long-term investment choices.
“I’m excited to return to Deloitte, especially at a time when the firm is taking a more holistic approach to the Asia Pacific region,” Mr. Davies said.
“The firm is well respected for its client-centric approach and I’m looking forward to working as part of the infrastructure team in assisting our clients navigate their challenges at a time of rapid change and uncertainty.
“This is particularly important as our major cities respond to population growth and our infrastructure services transform to maintain the quality of life and the liveability of our cities, which are expected by our communities.”
Mr. Davies will commence his role with Deloitte Australia on 3 September.
