Ross Campbell*
Executive Director, Melbourne
I am an experienced executive and developed my career in civil engineering, major infrastructure, government and advisory services. I thrive in intensely competitive industries shaped by policy, legislation, economic cycles, investor strategies and complex business and delivery models. My experience working in international markets refined my ability to lead and influence in complex environments requiring sound judgment, pragmatism and decisiveness.

Career highlights

Created the strategy, led the successful tender and negotiated with the Victorian State Government the 3-5 year, $250 million+ contract for the Major Road Projects Victoria Advisor Project, the largest contract of its type.

Advised on the successful delivery some of Australia's largest rail and road infrastructure projects, including:

  • Regional Rail Link Package C
  • M80 Upgrade Program
  • The Northern Road 3
  • Deer Park Bypass

Significantly grew the highways business and transport advisory services of an Australasian Transport Infrastructure Business. Also successfully created and unified its Australasian and East Asian ground transport businesses.

Heavily focused on mentorship and increasing diversity within the infrastructure industry. As Chair of Roads Australia's Fellowship Program, I have grown the Fellowship Council to over 60% female representation. I also negotiated and signed one of only 10 corporate partnerships with the Indigenous Defence & Infrastructure Consortium while at a previous employer.
