Hawkins Group Appoints New Board Member

Filed under Press Releases.

Hawkins Group is pleased to announce the appointment of Doug Lowrey to its Board of Directors. With Hawkins’ continued growth and expansion overseas Lowrey brings valuable knowledge and understanding of offshore infrastructure contracting, particularly in developing nations.

This international infrastructure experience, combined with Lowrey’s strong financial and commercial background, will be an asset to the Hawkins Board.

Lowrey has over 30 years’ experience in the engineering and construction industry across the heavy civil, mechanical and electrical sectors in Australasia, North and South Pacific, South East Asia and the Middle East.

He has experience in power generation and electricity transmission and has developed and managed an infrastructure business which owns and operates gas and hydro power stations and transmission systems; and led the growth of other organisations into Asia.

Lowrey has held key management and governance positions in private and publicly listed companies in Australia and New Zealand.

“I welcome Doug onto the Board personally,” says Board Chair Arthur Young. “We worked together for some years on the Board of McConnell Dowell and I have the highest regard for his experience in infrastructure and construction.”
