SCC member company Beca has welcomed Tim Mumford as Business Director, Digital and Innovation, based in its Melbourne office.
Tim will take a leading role in the development and implementation of Beca’s digital strategy, supporting their clients’ growing needs with a strong emphasis on Australian infrastructure projects, digital twins, and smart cities.
A chartered executive engineer with extensive leadership experience across public and private infrastructure and a wide range of industries, Tim brings deep sectoral knowledge and a comprehensive history of delivery through digital, innovation, change management, and strategy.
“We’re in a time of significant and unprecedented change, and the infrastructure sector is not immune.
Productivity is a major problem to solve, and digital and innovation can be better leveraged to transform the industry and respond to the many opportunities and challenges we face.
I look forward to contributing my expertise and building on Beca’s great work in this space, and to collaborating with our clients and partners in delivering outcomes that help shape our collective future,” says Tim.
Tim joins Beca from his most recent role at Infrastructure Australia as a policy leader in industry, innovation and productivity. Tim provided strategic advice to the Australian Government towards the development of the 2021 Australian Infrastructure Plan.
Immediately prior to Infrastructure Australia, Tim was the Head of Projects and Engineering in the Office of Projects Victoria where he led the development of the Victorian Digital Asset Strategy and other sector leading initiatives.
“We are excited to welcome Tim into the Beca team and look forward to working closely with him to build on our digital strategy work and drive forward our value and outcomes focus for clients and communities. With his decades of experience in infrastructure and construction innovation, and demonstrated ability in digital strategy creation and development, I know he will be a fantastic fit,” says Dr Kevin Doherty, Beca Group Director Transport and Infrastructure.
