Colin completed his Honours Degree in Civil Engineering at Kingston University in the UK before working for local, regional and national roading authorities across the south of England over a twelve year period. He moved to New Zealand in 2004 where he joined Opus in Auckland leading their Roading Team, and was the Design Manager and Deputy Team Leader for the SH18/SH16 Hobsonville Deviation Specimen Design. Three years later he moved to MWH to lead the Auckland Transport Infrastructure and Maintenance Business Units and led the delivery of Kingsland Cycleway Project and Matahorua Gorge Crossing Design amongst other projects. Three years later he moved to AECOM to lead the Auckland Transportation Team, incorporating everything from Asset Management to Major Capital Works and included road, rail and air projects. Key projects he led include the Grafton Gully Cycleway, SH1 Hill Road to Takanini Southbound Widening and Southern Road Corridor Road Maintenance Technical Support Services Contract for Auckland Transport.
In 2014 he joined Abley to create their Auckland Office. He built the local business whilst also developing a business capability in Network Operation Planning, consenting and design.
In 2019 his role changed to be business-wide and he now manages the business’s panel contracts and operates across the business enabling business improvement and client engagement, where he continues to enable business growth and efficiency.
Colin loves to push new boundaries on the use of data to provide smarter solutions for better investment decisions. His broad experience means he enjoys working with any client in any field of interest where traditional approaches aren’t giving the results they want. Whilst he really enjoys unravelling the complexities of broad strategic challenges, he is equally at home delving into the nuts and bolts of problem solving.
