Victoria’s strong pipeline of infrastructure projects is set to benefit from the experience of Mr Antony Damiani, who has been appointed as the inaugural Chief Executive Officer of the newly created Office of Projects Victoria (OPV).
Mr Damiani will join OPV Chair Ken Mathers and a team of highly-skilled professionals, bringing a wide range of expertise and years of experience to oversee the Andrews Labor Government’s growing pipeline of major infrastructure projects.
Fulfilling an election commitment, the OPV was established in September this year to oversee how major infrastructure projects are developed, contracted for and implemented.
Mr Damiani has been a senior manager in the construction industry for more than a decade and has extensive experience in project management and the engineering industry.
His most recent role was managing director of civil engineering company Cut & Fill.
Mr Damiani’s roles have also included value engineering, strategic planning and business case preparation, submission management, preparation of bid documents, strategic advice, project development and project delivery.
