Commenting on his new role, Hull said: “It’s an exciting time to join HKA at a time of growth and expansion in Asia Pacific. I’m thrilled to be working with a team that is committed to diversity and the development of colleagues while keeping clients at the centre of everything they do. I look forward to continuing to support positive outcomes for Queensland and working with colleagues locally and beyond.”

Prior to joining HKA, Hull led organisational strategy and business development teams across Australia and New Zealand at Jacobs for eight years. Most recently, he led a focus on decarbonisation and digital solutions with clients in the resources sector, supporting their energy transition and value creation strategies. He also provided leadership to major infrastructure programs by government and private sector.

Before Jacobs, Hull worked fifteen years for Sinclair Knight Merz, which was acquired by Jacobs in 2013.

I’m confident he will galvanise our Queensland presence and make a huge impact in the region!”

Benjamin Highfield, Asia Pacific CEO at HKA, added, “David’s dedication to service delivery excellence, innovation and client and stakeholder centricity will provide extra value to our clients and cements our commitment to the Queensland market.”
