Peter Hunt Architect is delighted to announce that Scott McConn has joined us in the newly created role of CEO.
Scott’s appointment signals a new era of growth and evolution for us as we continue to innovate, explore new markets and expand our national presence.
A qualified architect who has worked on complex, multi-million dollar projects for the past 35 years, Scott has a wealth of experience in design and construction, including executive and leadership roles encompassing HR, quality, strategy, operations, financials and business development.
Needless to say, 2020 has been an unusual year for all industry sectors, not just in Australia, but worldwide.
“But we believe architecture and the design industries, by their nature, have been able to be more adaptable in mitigating potential hurdles with the use of technology and remote working,” Scott says.
“Those that have invested in technology, personnel and a flexible working environment, will be well placed to maximise opportunities moving forward.”
Under Scott’s leadership, we’ll be capitalising on our ability to innovate in areas such as health, aged care, law and order, commercial, resources, education, and sport and recreation.
At the forefront will be the need to address the impact of related determinants such as climate change, sustainability and the sensitivities of health preservation within the buildings that people occupy and experience, says Managing Director Ron Edenburg.
“With Scott at the helm as new CEO we will explore new strategic directions, while ensuring we are strongly positioned to keep up with the challenges of Australia’s rapidly changing design landscape,” he says.
Scott’s appointment will allow Ron and fellow Managing Director Con Lampropoulos to focus on the creative, forward-thinking planning and design work that underpins our client-orientated philosophy, our projects and our culture.
With our practice expanding, Ron and Con and will also take on the pivotal role of mentoring and nurturing up-and-coming talent.
Principals Graham Hunt and Michael Cook, along with Associates Brian LaFontaine and Damien Sita, will continue to lead teams in Western Australia and on the East Coast, reinforcing the design excellence and efficient project delivery Peter Hunt Architect is renowned for.
