Ben Stapleton has been appointed the new managing director – infrastructure of international engineering and infrastructure advisory firm Aurecon.

Stapleton was the lead associate of advisory firm BRS until June this year, before starting his new role at Aurecon in the same month.

He has held senior leadership roles at both Jacobs and Sinclair Knight Merz in the past.

Aurecon’s global CEO Giam Swiegers says Stapleton will bring strong leadership and advisory capabilities to major growth markets for the firm.

"Appointing the right people is one of the many steps that Aurecon takes to ensure that our global teams are able to lead amidst ongoing disruption in our industry," Swiegers says.

"Ben will play an important role in contributing subject matter expertise to clients working in a complex global environment and who need asset optimisation, support with digitisation and smart infrastructure solutions." 

Aurecon says Stapleton’s appointment reflects the firm’s commitment to provide user-focused, innovative systems to governments and private sector clients as they tackle current and future infrastructure challenges.

Stapleton says Aurecon is "ideally positioned to help clients make better use of design and technology for long term infrastructure planning, development and maintenance".

"Some of the things that attracted me to this role at Aurecon are the company’s energetic approach to leveraging disruptive technology and best practice innovation to help clients make better decisions about all lifecycle stages of their infrastructure assets," he says.
