Abergeldie announces new CEO
Infrastructure provision company Abergeldie Complex Infrastructure announced the appointment of Mark Bruzzone as its new CEO, who commenced 22 March 2021.
After spending a year in the Executive General Manager role, Bruzzone’s new position will see him lead Abergeldie as it seeks to expand its business into growing markets.
In 2020, Abergeldie formed Abergeldie Energy, a new division dedicated to renewable energy. Abergeldie is looking at two key ways to support the renewable energy sector: using deep-shaft drilling to create storage for hydrogen, and standardising the frequency in the electricity grid by suspending a heavy weight in a deep shaft.
Founder and current Managing Director Mick Boyle said Bruzzone is both a good fit for the organisation, and brings the experience needed to take advantage of new opportunities.
“The appointment of Mark Bruzzone as CEO will ensure the Abergeldie team is well-led and supported while we pursue opportunities and develop our capabilities in the green hydrogen and renewable energy sectors,” said Boyle.
“Mark brings a wealth of knowledge to the team and his leadership style fits well with our culture.
Before Bruzzone joined Abergeldie in 2020, he was Managing Director of Stantec Australia & New Zealand, an engineering consulting business that has worked closely with Abergeldie on a number of projects, including as joint venture partners on long-term delivery programs with Melbourne Water and Sydney Water.
“I have watched Abergeldie grow over the years into one of the largest locally owned infrastructure companies with a breadth of expertise and capability spanning multiple sectors,” said Bruzzone.
“It is a company with a great reputation for working collaboratively with clients to deliver complex infrastructure to build better communities with a deep commitment to giving back to the communities we serve.”
Prior to his time at Stantec, Bruzzone spent almost 15 years at MWH Australia, including three as managing director.
Boyle will move into the role of Executive Chairman, and will focus on strategy, business acquisitions, joint ventures and major client relationships, as well as developing the renewable energy division that Abergeldie established last year.
“I look forward to working with Mick and the highly respected Abergeldie team, our clients and partners through the next growth chapter for Abergeldie” said Bruzzone.
