Managing director of pitt&sherry to retire

The managing director of infrastructure consultancy pitt&sherry, John Pitt, has announced that he will retire in September. His retirement follows 31 years with the company, which was set up by his late father Brian and business partner Clive Sherry in 1963.

“Over more than 30 years with the firm, John’s drive and leadership has taken it from a small northern Tasmanian civil engineering consultancy to a multifaceted group operating across the eastern states of Australia and internationally,” said pitt&sherry Chairman of the Board and National Mining Leader Dan O’Toole.

“As well as the business leadership, John has contributed significantly to many industry forums and has been a trusted point of reference to government and industry associations.”

Pitt’s departure will spark several changes in management at the company, with non-executive director Paul Hardy set to take over as chairman of the board and O’Toole to be appointed CEO. Both men have a considerable amount of consulting sector experience — Hardy as the previous CEO of Aurecon and O’Toole as a senior executive at Coffey International.

The board of pitt&sherry is confident that it has selected two high-calibre leaders who will ensure the ongoing development and growth of the company, building on the contribution made by Pitt.
