Premise is thrilled to announce the appointment of Anton van Velden as our new CEO. Further details have been reported by the Townsville Bulletin, as appears below:
ENGINEERING firm Premise has appointed Anton van Velden as its new CEO.
Mr van Velden brings over 20 years of industry experience to the role and will make public infrastructure projects a focus for the interdisciplinary group.
“Queensland is currently seeing considerable investments being made in infrastructure, both in the government and private sectors,” Mr van Velden said.
“Premise is positioned to offer these projects local on the-ground expertise, combined with interdisciplinary insights one would usually expect from a tier-one firm.”
Mr van Velden believes that well-executed infrastructure projects will offer ongoing job creation and economic stimulus in both North and South East Queensland.
Premise is involved with major development schemes, including the Haughton Pipeline Duplication, which will provide enhanced water security for Townsville.
“With a multiskilled team that spans throughout Queensland and into the Asia Pacific region, Premise is placed to offer our clients added value across project lifespans,” Mr van Velden said.
“A commitment to safety, and to quality commercial outcomes, will be what sets us apart from other operators within the region.”
Mr van Velden will take the reins at Premise from October
His appointment continues the evolution of the Premise brand, following last year’s merger of the UDP Group with Brisbane-based engineers the O2 Group.
