(L-R: Keith Delamore, Geoff Milsom, Alan Pattle)
We are pleased to welcome Geoff Milsom as Chief Executive of Pattle Delamore Partners.
Geoff will take over from founding CEOs Alan Pattle and Keith Delamore, and continue to build on the strong foundation they have provided PDP over the last 30 years.
Alan will stay on as Board Chairman and a Technical Director, while Keith is set to retire at the end of September.
Geoff brings with him 27 years of experience as a consulting engineer coupled with an extensive background in business leadership, strategic planning and business development in the New Zealand water and infrastructure sectors. Geoff’s key focus will be on further developing PDP’s market presence and providing strategic guidance for all areas of the business.
When asked what attracted him to PDP, Geoff said “primarily it’s their collegiate, one team approach and their unfaltering focus on service, recognising that enduring relationships with their clients and stakeholders are fundamental; and these are both principles that form the foundation of my approach to business”. Geoff went on to say “Keith and Alan should be extremely proud of the business they have built. I feel privileged to be given this opportunity to continue their legacy, to lead PDP forward to further success. With a strong and growing economy, significant planned investment in infrastructure, and some of the environmental challenges facing NZ, it is an exciting time to be at PDP”.
We believe Geoff’s industry knowledge and leadership is a great fit for PDP, and will support the company’s continued journey of growth and development.
