    Todd Battley – Chief Executive, AECOM Australia New Zealand

    Todd Battley became chief executive in 2017 and leads a team of over 3,500 designers, engineers, planners, scientists, and project managers across 25 offices in Australia and New Zealand. He is a member of AECOM’s global Executive Committee and Asia-Pacific leadership team.

    The traditional engineering consulting firm he joined as a civil engineering graduate of James Cook University in 1996 has changed significantly in the past 22 years.

    Todd has a relentless focus on staff and client service excellence which has enabled him to build a resilient and dynamic business, despite the highs and lows of the Australian infrastructure market.

    Most recently Todd led the cultural change that has made flexible work the norm at AECOM and helped launch Australia’s first term time contracts for professional engineers. He plays a leadership role in improving gender diversity across the infrastructure sector through his participation in the Male Champions of Change initiative and as a Pay Equity Ambassador for the Workplace Gender Equality Agency.
