Leading building construction,engineering and property development company Georgiou Group has announced the appointment of a senior industry figure to drive its expansion into New South Wales, just six months after being awarded a major land development contract in the key east coast market.
The company has appointed Robert Monaci as its inaugural New South Wales General Manager, a position which will see him responsible for establishing and growing a presence for Georgiou in the civil engineering market in New South Wales.
Holding a Bachelor of Engineering (Civil) from the NSW Institute of Technology, Mr Monaci brings more than 27 years of engineering and construction experience to the company and has built his career on a practical approach to project management and a strong customer focus.
Previously with John Holland Pty Ltd as the General Manager Operations Infrastructure South, Mr Monaci has also held senior leadership roles with Thiess and BIS Industrial Logistics.
Chief Executive Officer John Georgiou said the company was delighted to have secured the services of a senior and well-respected industry figure to spearhead its New South Wales operations.
“Georgiou is a growing business playing in a number of markets across Australia and, as a company, we feel it’s important to expand our reach into New South Wales with both existing and new clients,” he said.
“Robert’s solid understanding of the engineering and construction industry will greatly augment Georgiou’s ability to sustainably grow the New South Wales business and the industries in which it operates.”
Headquartered in WA, Georgiou is a national company with established operations in Victoria and Queensland.
The move into the New South Wales market comes just six months after Georgiou was selected by LWP Property Group to deliver the first stage of works of the Huntlee New Town Project in the Hunter Valley.
The $40 million-plus term contract will see Georgiou deliver upwards of 250 lots over two years, with the company responsible for development of the site from clearing to final preparation of lots for sale – including the establishment of roads and provision of utilities such as water, sewerage and power.
“Across Australia, Georgiou has really established itself in the land development market which is core to our business,” said Mr Georgiou.
“We have highly experienced project teams who strive to deliver high-quality projects, in excess of our clients’ expectations.
“Securing the Huntlee New Town contract opened the door for Georgiou to bring that experience into New South Wales, and really grow our brand and capability. We anticipate the next 12 months will see Georgiou firmly establish itself in the State and continue delivering innovative solutions to clients.”
