Equans Australia and New Zealand has appointed Tony Ursini to the role of Chief Financial Officer. Ursini is an experienced leader in facilities management, technical services and energy solutions.
After spending the past 13 years working with City Facilities Management in both Australia and the US, Ursini was most recently employed as CFO and Company Secretary North America.
As a Certified Practising Accountant and a member of the Australian Institute of Company Directors, Ursini began his career in accounting, including spending a decade with Coles. Equans says this has allowed him to balance strategy and operations, including having a thorough understanding of the facilities management industry.
“Knowing about the long-standing success of the companies that were brought together under the Equans banner, I am excited to join this new and refocused company,” says Ursini. “I am looking forward to applying my experience in FM to deliver on Equans’ growth ambitions, to become the leader in technical services in ANZ.”
Equans ANZ CEO Patrick Guédel welcomed Ursini, who has returned to Australia from Florida for the role.
“Tony’s leadership and transformation experience in challenging, fast-paced markets such as facilities management and retail, across countries, will be a great asset to our business and our finance function,” says Guédel.
“His experience will support our continued transformation into a robust, growth-focused and commercially savvy business.”
