New Australia Council Member from EY

New Australia Council Member from EY

We are pleased to welcome on board Greg Dobson, Oceania Infrastructure Advisory Leader | Strategy and Transactions, EY, as a Australia Council Member:

We asked Greg a few questions to get to know him a bit better:

  • If you could personally change or influence one thing within infrastructure and/or energy, what would it be?

Renew the focus of the public sector on the benefits of private financing and widen its application in the provision of services. At a time when the public sector is facing fiscal constraints, we need to utilise more innovative ways to unlock private financing and overcome structural, contractual and philosophical hurdles. We need to re-tell the story to emerging leaders and stakeholders across the industry. IPFA has a leading role to play to share knowledge and thought leadership and help provide the rationale to the champions of change and private financing within the public sector.

 

  • Knowing what you know now, what advice would you give to yourself at the start of your career?

Your career is not a straight line, so be open to all opportunities and be mindful of the overall direction of your career. Be driven by what will motivate and sustain you over the longer term.

 

  • What do you hope to bring to this Council?

I will add to the Council’s depth of experience across the industry.  My capabilities of business leadership and driving change and innovation at EY will be leveraged to drive innovation and strategy for the IPFA Australia Branch to remain a leading industry association, broaden its membership base and be a voice of influence and progress with key stakeholders to ensure a vibrant industry.
