The launch of the new practice expands Alvarez & Marsal’s portfolio of services in Australia, and comes in response to growing demand for capital projects expertise, said Utsav Garg, the firm’s regional leader for South East Asia and Australia.

The Infrastructure & Capital Projects practice supports clients with the full management lifecycle of their capital projects. Key offerings include developing capital projects strategy, ensuring project excellence during delivery phases, digital asset management, running portfolio management offices, and dispute & resolution services.

Commenting on the launch in Australia, the global leader of the practice, Marcos Ganut, said: “Alvarez & Marsal continues to build its capabilities and provide the leadership to best address clients’ current and future needs. The firm leverages and deploys talent to create solutions unbound by geography. Fabio’s move to Australia is clear evidence of our commitment.”

Antunes has more than 15 years of capital projects experience, having worked in several segments of operations and capital projects, including infrastructure and brownfield and greenfield projects.

Notable assignments include projects managed in mining and metals, logistic infrastructure (ports, railways, airports and highways), power (including renewables), fertilizers and biofuels, in South America, North America and the Middle East. Most recently, he was responsible for strategic accounts and projects for the mining and metals sector, focused on improving capital allocation and structuring the delivery model for complex projects.

Antunes noted, “The richness of Australia’s natural resources, and its leading role in transitioning to clean energy, fits with Alvarez & Marsal’s heritage of driving change. The launch of the Infrastructure & Capital Projects practice positions us to help local and cross-border clients address this growth market.”
