Our rapidly growing urban centres, growth in tourism, development pressures on our built and natural environments, combined with a strong economy, present both opportunity and challenge for businesses and government. I have always loved a challenge and I look forward to continuing to focus our business on solving complex problems and making a real difference for the businesses and communities we serve.”.
