Root Partnerships welcomes Matthew Curnow to the team

Root Partnerships welcomes Matthew Curnow to the team as a Director in the Sydney office leading the NSW Health, Tertiary and School Education sectors.

Root Partnerships’ Managing Director Peter Root says: “We are delighted to have Matthew on board. With his significant record leading the delivery of several major acute health, transport, aviation, education and justice projects, Matthew’s skills and experience will strengthen our already considerable project expertise in the Education and Health sectors.”

Matthew joins Root Partnerships from PwC where he held the position of Director leading planning, transaction and delivery teams across major economic and social infrastructure projects of up to $2bn in value. Matthew’s experience covers the full project lifecycle from project inception, business case preparation through to the development of the procurement strategy, complex transaction management and management of the delivery phases.

Recent notable projects on which Matthew has played a leading role include:

  • Randwick Hospital Campus Redevelopment
  • Sydney International Airport Southern Expansion Project
  • Westmead Hospital Redevelopment
  • Blacktown and Mt Druitt Hospital Redevelopment
  • Fiona Stanley Hospital, Perth

“Matthew will work with Associate Directors David Wiles and Peter Fleming to continue to deliver outstanding results for our clients, in particular our valued long-term clients,” says Peter. “And we look forward to the opportunity to work with new clients with our newly bolstered team.”

The addition of Matthew to Root Partnerships’ project leadership team of NSW Director Chris Crick and Victorian Directors Tim Eerhard and James Moorey puts Root Partnerships in an even stronger position in delivering major projects across a diverse range of sectors. In NSW Chris will continue to lead the Civic, Culture, Justice, Housing, Aged Care, TAFE and Industrial sectors.

With the short-term focus by the Federal and NSW Government on creating a strong infrastructure pipeline, Root Partnerships has been strengthening its team across all levels in order to be able to meet increases in project demand.

Peter says, “The combined experience of Matthew and Chris leading our already very capable NSW project management team puts Root Partnerships in the best possible position to continue to deliver outstanding results, not only for our clients in Education and Health, but for our clients across all sectors.”
