CONSTRUCTION company Watpac has hired Lendlease’s operations manager Peter Furlong to lead its New South Wales team.
Furlong has been appointed general manager and will be in charge of the company’s strategy to diversify, grow and take on larger, more complex projects.
Watpac CEO Jean-Pol Bouharmont said; “With the backing of BESIX Group, Watpac can see great opportunities to provide New South Wales clients with the engineering strength and delivery value they need to bring their visions to life. Peter is the ideal person to lead and develop the state team to achieve this objective,”
Furlong has been lured back to Watpac after five years.
“I’m thrilled to be coming home to Watpac after an absence of 5 years and I’m excited for our team and the journey we have embarked upon in New South Wales,” Furlong said. “We have a proud record of iconic projects in this state including One Central Park and current projects such as Poly Centre. With our in-house engineering strength and diversified capabilities, we will play a major role in building the future of Sydney and the state.”
