Veolia Australia New Zealand is pleased to announce the appointment of Kate Slattery, who joins our Executive Committee in the role of Chief Technical and Innovation Officer on 9 October 2023. 

Ms Slattery previously held the post of Head of Technical Services and Operations at Colliers, where she was responsible for leading teams of technical specialists and subject matter experts across technical services, project management, risk and sustainability. 

Ms Slattery has also held diverse leadership and engineering roles with AGL, JLL and Mott MacDonald.
