Yagen brings to his role of Queensland Manager, Advisory over 25 years of experience as a trusted advisor to government, utilities, and private sector. He has provided infrastructure advisory, project development and planning support on strategic economic growth and development infrastructure projects that continue to add sustainable value. He also provides guidance and mentorship to our graduates and young consulting professionals.
One of Yagen’s first projects after his post-graduate studies in Civil Engineering was the innovative and award-winning Rouse Hill Recycled Water Scheme. The Scheme supplies piped recycled water as a secondary supply to 30,000 properties for ablution and gardening saving 2.9B litres of potable drinking water every year and therefore enhancing our nations’ sustainability through water security.
Yagen has recently delivered three Critical Significant State Infrastructure (CSSI) Dam projects which provide water security to approximately 55 local councils in regional New South Wales. These projects secured a federal investment commitment of $567m in FY21. In addition to these projects, Yagen has delivered many other major infrastructure projects, including several signature projects that received commendations from FIFA, World Bank, and UN World Heritage. He is currently leading his team in the delivery of major dam and hydropower and transaction advisory on projects enhancing regional and urban economies.
Yagen’s experience across the project life cycle in his early career defined his passion to be involved in the Project Development stages of projects. His leadership and technical career grew exponentially whilst working with leading multinational, built environment companies. Yagen brings much of that value to leading and growing the Water & Utilities team at Ranbury whilst helping clients and key stakeholders realise maximum value in their investment and development of their projects as well as enhancement of their asset portfolios.
Joining the Ranbury team in 2021, Yagen delivers value to our clients on significant projects across Australia.
