Sustainability consultancy Perspektiv has over the past weeks boosted its team with four new recruits across its offices in Perth, Hobart and Sydney.

Based in Perth, Katie Williams has joined Perspektiv as a Principal Consultant. She focuses on ESG strategy and leadership, human rights, social impact, sustainable procurement and sustainable governance service areas.

Formerly a partner in a global law firm and an employment lawyer for 20+ years, Williams brings significant expertise in the energy and infrastructure sectors to the team. She combines her expertise in complex workforce matters with skills in corporate governance, sustainable procurement, modern slavery, social impact, diversity, equity and reconciliation.

“Katie comes from the legal and regulatory domain, adding to our professional portfolio of engineers, social scientists, environmental scientists and architects,” said Patrick Ilott, who founded the company in 2017.

Williams firmly believes that the best outcomes derive from an approach that integrates the environmental with the social rather than putting them in silos. “Today’s wicked problems of deep inequalities and climate crisis need cohesive, multi-disciplinary responses. For me, joining the team at Perspektiv is a transformational opportunity to leverage our combined skill sets and help our clients drive progress.”

Based in Hobart, Lauren Cromarty has been appointed a Senior Consultant. She spent the past five years at Hydro Tasmania, where she worked as an environmental scientist and supported the delivery of a range of environment programs and projects. She also actively managed the organisation’s Environmental Management System and was a Lead Auditor in ISO14001.

“Lauren is a hardworking and experienced environmental scientist who will be key in helping us to drive our business development,” said Ilott.

Sreejita Ghosh (Sydney) and Stewart Lee (Perth) have meanwhile joined as a Consultant.

With experience working in the residential and commercial building industry, Ghosh boasts experience in the thermal modelling of residential projects using BERSPro software. She has a keen interest in infrastructure sustainability and the circular economy.

Lee has experience working as an engineer for some large mining and infrastructure clients. He has also worked with a couple of large Western Australia local governments on how planning processes and building regulations can be enhanced to unlock more sustainability benefits.

The quartet of new joiners lift the size of Perspektiv’s team to around 25 consultants and staff.
