PwC has appointed Tim Reardon – the former Secretary of the New South Wales Department of Premier and Cabinet – as its new national transport and precincts leader.

Tim Reardon brings more than 20 years in senior roles in both the public and private sectors around Australia to the role. In his most recent role, he held the most senior role in the NSW public service for four years, guiding the state through the height of the pandemic and one of the most challenging times in its history.

Prior to his four years at the helm of the NSW public service, Reardon was Secretary of Transport for New South Wales, leading one of the largest pipelines of major transport infrastructure projects NSW has ever seen.

Commenting on Reardon’s track record in the transport infrastructure space when he took on the top job at the Department of Premier and Cabinet (succeeding Blair Comley), former NSW Premier Gladys Berejiklian said: “Tim’s expertise in strategic infrastructure planning and project delivery has been at the heart of the government’s achievements.”

Now at PwC, Reardon will spearhead the firm’s transport and precincts offerings, and team of over 500 staff across Australia (including 60 partners). He will meanwhile also be involved with several of PwC’s significant infrastructure projects, providing strategic planning and project delivery expertise.

PwC Australia Integrated Infrastructure lead partner Peter Konidaris said: “Tim is one of Australia’s most valuable and highly-regarded experts in his field, and we are enormously excited about the leading role he will help play. Infrastructure strategy, delivery and reform is at the forefront of what we do, and Tim will provide an exceptional platform for the diverse skills of our practice.”

“I’m incredibly excited to have the opportunity to play a key role in helping rethink the way we as a nation approach infrastructure – there’s never been a better time to stop and take stock of how our precincts, our transport connections and the urban regeneration of our cities are best intertwined,” said Reardon.

“The pandemic has turned on its head many of the societal norms when it comes to the way we live our lives and move around, while our transition to net zero emissions means we are constantly required to rethink how our cities, precincts and regions work – as leaders in Australia’s infrastructure planning and delivery, it’s incumbent on us to keep pace with this change.”
