Aussie project manager wins international award

Mr Gibson was awarded the title on 29 September at the association’s World Conference in Panama. He is the first Australian to receive the accolade in the 29-year history of the awards.

“I was shocked and elated to be named number one in the world, especially as I was up against people who led massive global projects worth billions of dollars,” Mr Gibson said.

“It’s been such an amazing journey – from state to national to Asia Pacific titles, and now finally international glory. I can’t describe how chuffed I am.”

The title was presented in recognition of Mr Gibson’s work on the Wooloongabba sewerage network in Brisbane – a five-year $A82 million project that was delivered ahead of schedule and $A3.7 million under budget.

“The project saw more than 5 km of large trunk sewer mains installed, and will ensure the sewerage network caters for expected population growth.”
