For the past five years Fulton Hogan’s Industries and Construction businesses have grown into one of Australia’s largest multi-faceted privately owned contracting companies.
While Fulton Hogan has built a reputation for delivering complex and challenging projects across a range of sectors, drawing on its unique manufacturing and pavement expertise, it has always remained focused on retaining its point of difference of having a family-based culture that cares about its people, customers and communities.
To help further build on this culture, while enhancing customer experience, from 1 July 2017, the Australian business will be led by the newly appointed country CEO, Nick Marinelli. He will be supported by a CEO for each of the Construction and Industries streams, with Duncan Gibb appointed to the CEO – Construction position. The position of CEO – Industries is currently vacant, with Nick Marinelli continuing to manage this portfolio for the immediate future.
Nick Miller, Managing Director says that this structure reflects the maturity and scale of the Australian business.
“This new structure strengthens Fulton Hogan’s common vision and culture. It will also improve customer experience, particularly in sectors where both Industries and Construction operate.
“We have retained a CEO for each stream as we recognise that each business requires specialised skill sets and expertise to grow.
“Nick Marinelli and Duncan Gibb have over 20 years combined experience within Fulton Hogan and their combined expertise will lead our ongoing growth in Australia.
“Nick Marinelli joined Fulton Hogan in 2009 and has held a number of executive positions including General Manager – Planning and Development and more recently, Chief Executive Officer – Australian Industries. Under Nick’s leadership, Fulton Hogan has grown its Australian Industries business of quarrying, asphalt, surfacing, transport and asset maintenance into new sectors and regional areas. He also managed commercial acquisition activities, new venture start-ups, marketing, business development and technology transfer across Fulton Hogan. Prior to joining Fulton Hogan, Nick held senior positions with Rinker, Cemex Australia, Pioneer Construction Materials and Pioneer International in Australia and overseas.
“Duncan Gibb joined Fulton Hogan in 2004 after 20 years in the Australian construction industry and has since spent significant time within both the Australian and New Zealand businesses. He led the transition of Belmadar Construction in NSW into the Fulton Hogan family, was General Manager of the Queensland business, and led the $2 billion rebuild of Christchurch infrastructure between 2011 and 2015. Duncan has held roles senior executive roles in Fulton Hogan including strategic development, HSQE & Sustainability, and more recently, headed up the start-up of the Kaikoura Earthquake rebuild in North Canterbury.
“As Fulton Hogan continues to grow, we’ll remain agile in our structure to ensure our Industries and Construction customers continue to benefit from our unique culture.”
