Arup sends boss to spearhead growth in Australasia

19 March 2014

Robert Care will be relocating to Canberra, in the Australian Capital Territory (ACT), to oversee the growth of Arup's business in the ACT and its expansion in New Zealand and Indonesia.

The former chair and CEO of Arup in Australasia (2004 - 2010) and the UK, Middle East and Africa (2011 - 2013) will apply more than 40 years of experience across engineering, policy advice and leadership to develop key project opportunities and relationships with public and private clients for Arup, the company said recently.

Care has held the posts of chief engineer of the National Capital Development Commission and later head of ACT Public Works from 1986 to 1990 and being a past deputy chair of the Australian Construction Industry Forum.

"Canberra has always been a special place to me - and with the ACT looking at opportunities to define itself for the future, I'm looking forward to being part of the next phase in the area's evolution," said Care.

Beyond Canberra, Care will also be involved in the development of Arup's business throughout the Australasia region - particularly in New Zealand and Indonesia.
