Stantec announces leadership promotions for growing Australia & New Zealand region

Joseph Walsh and Paul Moore take on new roles as the regional Buildings Engineering practice expands

08/17/2021 SYDNEY, NEW SOUTH WALES, AU TSX, NYSE: STN

Leading global design firm Stantec has promoted Joseph Walsh to the newly created buildings growth leader for Australia & New Zealand, and Paul Moore to buildings group leader for New South Wales (NSW), vacated by Walsh. They will continue to support the firm’s momentum of growth and diversification of its multi-disciplinary buildings engineering practice in Australia.

Working closely with the Buildings practice and company leadership, Walsh will focus on expanding Stantec’s portfolio through complementary offerings in new geographies, the expansion of service offering and disciplines, and deeper market penetration in both existing market sectors and new markets. He will remain based in Sydney.

As Walsh transitions into his new position, Paul Moore, a key member of the Sydney Buildings team, will step into Walsh’s previous NSW group leader role. Moore joined Stantec in 2012 as the Sydney structural section manager and will guide the regional team in finding innovative solutions to the challenges of a post-recession, post-COVID Sydney market.

“The growth potential in this region is boundless and has provided excellent opportunities to assess the needs of the market and connect our expertise and services. Together, with leaders like Joseph and Paul, we are finding an equilibrium of innovation, creativity, and trust, while upholding our unwavering commitment to design with community in mind,” said Joe Geller, senior vice president and Australia & New Zealand regional leader for Stantec.

Stantec business operations continue to grow in the region, currently with 1,700 local personnel. Supported by expanded leadership, the team finds connections between client needs and the firm’s comprehensive services. The Australia & New Zealand regional operations also leverage Stantec resources from across the globe.
