GHD has announced the appointment of a new manager for the New Zealand/Pacific region.
Seeing herself as a ‘leader of culture’, Van Tang is making a move across the Tasman as GHD’s Regional General Manager – New Zealand/Pacific. Van succeeds Al Monro who has taken up a new role as Commercial Manager, New Zealand.
Van has led GHD’s operations in South Australia since 2014, doubling revenue and employee numbers while also diversifying the portfolio of clients.
Van is passionate about building high-performing and diverse teams. She is a civil engineer with extensive experience in infrastructure, aviation and defence.
“The infrastructure challenges facing New Zealand – from water regulation to transportation and housing – put higher expectations on consultants to challenge current thinking and push the boundaries of what’s possible,” Van says. “Our performance is intrinsically linked to the range of skills, and diversity of background and experience we bring to our clients’ challenges.”
