It’s an exciting time for our business, as we continue to grow in the services we offer and the  geographies in which we operate, and I am looking forward to playing a further part in that”.

Similarly, Paul has experience across various sectors including roles with Planning SA, BHP Billiton and Iluka Resources.  His professional services background commenced in 1998 and has included roles in New Zealand, the United Kingdom and Australia since 2002. Paul was the founding member of EMM’s Adelaide office in 2017 and has been central to building the EMM brand in South Australia.
