Reflecting on the transition, Flanagan said that it had been a great honour to lead Aveng “during a period of immense challenge and change.”

Scott Cummins has been CEO of McConnell Dowell, and a member of the Aveng Executive Committee, since joining the business in 2015.  His career spans some 38 years as a contractor in engineering and construction, oil and gas and infrastructure industries and he has held global and regional executive roles in Australia, Asia, the Middle East and Europe.

Cummins has led McConnell Dowell through a major strategic and operational change during this time, including turning the business around, closing out legacy matters and significantly growing the business from its contracted size. He is well regarded in the industry and has served as the Vice President of the Australian Constructors Association.

Cummins said he’s excited by the opportunity to lead Aveng and was humbled by the appointment.

“I am looking forward to working with the Board and my executive team to deliver Aveng’s strategy and the next phase of sustainably profitable growth, as well as working more closely with the Moolmans team as they continue to deliver significant improvements in their business,” he said.
