World news – Retirement forces changes in top business


One of the leading construction consultancies in Queensland has named its fourth managing director in the Sunshine State in nearly 60 years.

After a 39-year career with Rider Levett Bucknall – the last six as Queensland’s general manager – David Stewart will retire this year, handing over the baton to Matt Long.

The Queensland branch of global business, proud of its stability in the changing sands of the real estate industry, has had only four local directors since opening in Brisbane in 1962.

Mr. Stewart’s predecessor, Mark Burow, held the position for 14 years and was with the company for nearly 50 years. It was handed over by Henry George, who started the Queensland business for RLB and was Managing Director for 38 years.

« Matt’s commitment to the highest standards of governance, performance and customer management is well known, as is his passion for helping people achieve successful project outcomes, » he said.

« I am confident that Matt will continue to work to lead our great company into an exciting future and I am very proud to hand over the reins to such a respected real estate professional. »

Mr. Long has spent most of his 20 year career at RLB in Queensland, with the last eight years as a director.

Over the course of two decades, he has provided feasibility advice, cost planning and estimating, value engineering and post-contract cost management for some of Queensland’s best-known projects such as Queens Wharf, Treasury Casino, Howard Smith Wharf and Q1.

« Under David’s leadership, RLB in Queensland has expanded its defense, education, infrastructure and research expertise, built its growing program division and strengthened its reputation as Australia’s most respected volume measurement company, » said Long.

« I, along with the entire RLB community, are grateful to David for his dedication, dedication and leadership skills during his tenure and look forward to celebrating his many achievements closer to his retirement later this year. »
