Clinton Lourens has always been a wanderer. He grew up in South Africa and his career has taken him from the United Kingdom to Europe, Taiwan, Hong Kong, Kuala Lumpur, Australia – and he is now based in Singapore.
Clinton recently joined Leighton Asia, a member of the CIMIC Group, as the Head of Engineering for South East Asia.
He takes up the role following five years with EIC Activities, also a member of the CIMIC Group. While at EIC Activities, Clinton supported Leighton Asia from his base in Brisbane, working with teams across multiple time zones and countries.
In his position at Leighton Asia, Clinton supports tenders and projects in Singapore, the Philippines and Indonesia, and provides engineering training and development to staff in these countries.
“What attracted me to the role was the chance to help Leighton Asia to expand and grow in local markets,” said Clinton.
“One of the key things I’ve learned from EIC Activities is that there are endless possibilities for innovative engineering solutions to increase the success rate of tenders and generate positive outcomes for projects. It is a mindset of innovation and improvement that I want to bring into all projects I work on.”
“A big part of Clinton’s role is connecting people, projects and expertise. He is able to leverage his knowledge of capabilities and experience within EIC Activities as well as his experience working with a variety of project teams across CIMIC Group to transfer information and connections,” Geoff Sewell, EIC Activities Acting Managing Director.
