Congratulations to Mark Elvidge (Manager - Transport, NSW) who has been selected to participate in the 2016 Roads Australia Fellowship Program. The Fellowship Program is a 12 month national mentoring program that pairs 20 industry leaders (Mentors) in the Australian infrastructure sector with a select group of outstanding managers with 10 to 15 years' experience who exhibit strong leadership potential (Fellows). The premise of this program is to provide opportunities and encouragement for the next generation to develop leadership skills, build strong networks, and stay engaged in the industry.
Mark will be mentored by Cathal O'Rourke, Managing Director, Australia Hub at Laing O'Rourke. As Mark said, "I'm really pleased to be participating in the Fellowship Program. It's a fantastic opportunity to learn from one of Australia's leaders in the infrastructure sector and I'm looking forward to the year ahead."
Mark has a broad array of local and international experience in delivering major transportation infrastructure projects in Australia, the USA, and Puerto Rico. He has worked on multi-disciplinary teams as a Project Director, Project Manager, Design Manager, Utility Relocation Coordinator and Lead Road Designer. His NSW career has involved working on many Design Alliances and Design & Construct projects such as Westconnex M4 Widening, North West Rail Link - SVC Works, Memorial Avenue, Bringelly Road, Richmond Road, Camden Valley Way, and Great Western Highway Upgrades. In addition to his management role, he is also the Client Account Manager for Road & Maritime Services (RMS).
Mark is the second person from Beca to be accepted into the Fellowship Program; Alex Yee (Principal - Transport) was selected to join in its inaugural year in 2014. Alex, who has now been elected as Chair for the Roads Australia’s Fellowship Chapter, was mentored by Vin Vassallo, Group General Manager Victoria, Transurban.
