Scott Power has been integral to the success of BMD, leading the business through his role as Group Executive Director – Operations since 2009.
Having commenced his engineering career in the business his father started, Scott combines more than 25 years of technical engineering and construction experience in management roles and contracting disciplines, to lead the sustained growth and strategic direction of the Group.
Over a 40 year history, BMD has grown from a small business to become a diverse organisation providing integrated services of civil engineering, construction, design, property development and landscaping. Scott’s involvement as a critical leader of BMD has seen the business become a truly national contractor and launch operations offshore, as well as the bolstering of capabilities beyond transport infrastructure and land development, into non-traditional sectors – primarily ports, airports and resources.
As both a professional engineer and business leader, Scott has spearheaded the management of BMD’s national portfolio of infrastructure projects, successfully achieving a consistent annual turnover of more than $1 billion.
With BMD employing more than 1,700 people across its operations, including almost 400 engineers, Scott’s role is instrumental in leading the engineering and professional teams across project tendering and execution.
Passionate about industry sustainability, local participation, training, diversity and building a clear and inspiring strategy for business growth, Scott empowers teams to take ownership and deliver on projected outcomes. Scott continues to instil the culture BMD is renowned for and that has enabled its differentiation from its competitors.
Scott’s focus is to manage BMD’s continued success in a manner that retains the long-term relationships and a collaborative approach that has been the hallmark of the Group since its inception in 1979. He is actively involved in the construction industry, advocating for contractors and building relationships with clients and partners to uphold the respected position BMD holds in the industry.
