This, as Lendlease Global Chief Executive Officer, Tony Lombardo noted, would bring the Australian business in line with Lendlease’s other international operations.
Dale Connor has been appointed to the position of Chief Executive Officer, Australia.
The company has also created three new global roles for the company’s Development, Construction and Investment activities. David Hutton has been appointed Group Head of Development, Hans Dekker as Group Head of Construction and Kylie Rampa as Group Head of Investments.
“Our strategy of focusing on the development, investments and construction segments continues to be the right one for Lendlease,” Lombardo said.
“However, in order to more effectively harness Lendlease’s capabilities globally, we need to evolve our organisational structure to deliver greater consistency and efficiencies.”
“This will help us unlock the full potential of the Group’s $110 billion development pipeline, expand our investments platform – comprising $38 billion of funds and management and $28 billion of assets under management – and execute our construction work consistently in all markets.”
A new position of Global Chief Operating Officer will be introduced to lead operational consistency between Lendlease’s four operating regions – Australia, Europe, Americas and Asia, as well as driving strategic growth initiatives. This role will be filled by Denis Hickey, who will also retain his position as CEO Americas
CEO, Digital, Bill Ruh will continue to lead the digital transformation of Lendlease and its projects through data, advanced analytics and new technologies
“These changes will allow us to take the best we have globally – our platforms, product capability and learnings – and empower our four regions to outperform our competitors and set the standards to which others aspire. And we’ll do so with no compromise on our culture of care and people’s safety,” Lombardo said.
The new structure will also result in several changes to Lendlease’s global leadership team, including new appointments for Regional Businesses, Product Expertise and Enterprise Support divisions.
