Project management company, Protegic has announced the appointment of its first CFO, Rod Fay.
Fay is a chartered accountant with considerable experience in large organisations.
"The new financial year brings with it a new and innovative business strategy and senior consulting partner positions for Protegic, which will help deliver stronger partnerships with clients," Mr Fay said.
Fay’s believes Protegic’s biggest opportunity is ensuring “our clients recognise our strengths, that they can differentiate Protegic from the rest of the “pack” and selecting Protegic as first choice for their needs”.
He cites client inertia as the company’s biggest challenge “Engaging clients to proceed with what is right in times of uncertainty when first choice may be to do nothing.”
Fay began his career with Touche Ross in the field of audit, then joined a boutique chartered firm and later qualified as a chartered accountant and registered tax agent. In more recent years Mr Fay was CEO of a private hospital group, and accountant of a private school with over 300 staff and more than $30 million turnover.
Protegic CEO, David Thompson, said, "I am delighted that Rod is joining our executive management team as CFO. He is well qualified over a number of industries and brings to the company more than 25 years of business experience, with a dedication to the ethos of continuous improvement."
Protegic describes itself as Australia's fastest growing project management company, providing both delivery and advisory services throughout Australia and Asia Pacific.
