The addition of Marianne to our leadership team will contribute vital skills and experience to realising these strategic goals,” said Executive Director Andrew Tompson.

Her professional portfolio includes famous buildings such as the National Aquatics Centre in Beijing (the Water Cube) and 50 Martin Place in Sydney (as well as the adjacent Metro station).
