Mike has more than 35 years’ experience in Management and Infrastructure Management and Development in New Zealand, The Pacific and Asia.
In that time, he has served on, and chaired two industry organisations, the REAAA NZ Chapter and ITS NZ for the last two years.
Mike was an early adopter and innovator in Infrastructure Asset Management and was Stantec's lead for ITS and Analytics for Stantec Australia and NZ. In terms of ITS Mike is a great believer in the role that new technology can play in NZ meetings its transport objectives whether they be
- emissions reductions from smart evs or improved transport systems,
- road safety and road to zero targets through the application of new technologies or
- improving equity with improved transport options or through mobility as a service;
As current Chair of ITS NZ Mike is keen to see our international connectedness improve and will be aiming to bring the ITS Asia Pacific Forum to NZ in the next 2-3 years and is conscious that planning for this needs to start now.
