Root Partnerships gears up for further growth

Root Partnerships has announced a series of appointments to its Board and senior management reflecting its commitment to its newly adopted five-year strategic plan.

The Board has appointed John Taylor as the new Chairman in addition to his role as Non-Executive Director.

Mr Taylor has extensive experience in project management delivery and has served on a number of Australian and international boards across a range of industries through his career. These include founder, former Chairman and Managing Director of APP Corporation, Chairman of Confluence Project Management, a member of the Board of NSW Health Infrastructure, and until recently, Chair of the NSW Central Coast Regional Development Corporation.

Bill Woodhead who served as the Chairman since 2010, will remain on the Board as a Non-Executive Director. Executive Director Mac Lydiard also take on the role of Company Secretary.

Further appointments to Root Partnerships’ senior management include Paul Hunter and Julian Small as Directors in the NSW business who bring significant experience in leading teams through the management and delivery of major building and infrastructure projects both in Australia and abroad.

Root Partnerships’ strategic growth plan is focussed on aggressive organic growth and has been designed to continue to capitalise on the thriving infrastructure construction market as well as to take advantage of market opportunities.

Mr Taylor says he is “very excited and enthusiastic about the new role”.

“Root Partnerships is very well placed to take advantage of the strong momentum in building and infrastructure development in Australian capital cites at the moment and that’s likely to continue for some time,” he says.

“The plan that we’ve set ourselves is definitely achievable and will bring great satisfaction to all that are a part of it,” he adds, singling out the quality of the company’s staff and its culture of individual empowerment as the keys to its success.
