Beca is pleased to announce the appointment of Stuart Tucker to the role of Chief Technical Officer, effective 1 February 2024.
In his new role, Stuart will lead Beca’s technical strategy and standards, building capability to ensure quality, value, and sustainability of solutions delivered across our markets, and foster a culture of innovation alongside delivery excellence.
Stuart says, "I am honored and excited to take on this new challenge. We have a fantastic team of talented and dedicated people who are committed to delivering exceptional value for our clients and communities. I look forward to working with our team to deliver innovative and sustainable solutions that make a positive impact."
Stuart has a proven track record of delivering successful outcomes for complex and large infrastructure projects and project designs, including the Victoria Park Tunnel and the Waterview Connection in Auckland. He has over 30 years in the consulting and civil construction sectors – much of it spent managing large engineering teams within integrated design processes.
Starting out as a graduate engineer at Beca, Stuart went on to hold a wide range of leadership roles including General Manager of the Transport and Infrastructure business across Australia and New Zealand, and most recently as Business Director – Major Projects & Partners. His reputation for successful design management reflects his ability to balance attention to detail with a strong focus on delivery and a best-for-project approach.
Chief Executive Officer Amelia Linzey says, "Stuart brings a wealth of experience to the role as a proven leader in the technical delivery and risk management space, and is committed to supporting our teams to deliver great outcomes for our clients and work alongside them to solve complex challenges. I’m looking forward to seeing Stuart's passion for technical excellence drive our delivery in the future."
