Francoise Merit, previously Chief Financial Officer (CFO) for Australia and New Zealand, has been appointed as Aurecon’s Global CFO, with previous CFO Andrew Muller appointed as Aurecon’s new Chief Operating Officer (COO). 

Incoming Global Chief Executive Officer, William Cox, said “I am pleased to announce these appointments for Louise, Francoise and Andrew. Each are seasoned, expert operators at the top of their fields, capable of leading the charge as we consolidate Aurecon’s growth and pursue new opportunities across Digital, Advisory and Asia.”
