13 Dec 2021
Craig Goltz takes over resposibility for leading company’s construction, engineering, transport and logistics functions
Australian heavy lift tower crane specialist Marr Contracting (‘The Men From Marr’s’), has appointed Craig Goltz as operations director of its global operations in a role that will see him assume responsibility for leading Marr’s operations team, including the construction, works and yards, engineering, transport and logistics functions for the business.
Goltz will be based in Sydney and returns to Australia after more than six years working internationally in locations such as the Middle East, UK and North America, bringing almost 40 years’ experience working on large-scale construction projects across the oil & gas and chemicals, mining and minerals, power, infrastructure and nuclear sectors.
Simon Marr, managing director, Marr Contracting, said: “Craig’s appointment is strategically important for us as we continue to build our business internally in preparation for a strong pipeline of new works coming on board both domestically and internationally. 2022 is looking to be one of the strongest years ever for our business and we’re seeing growth across a diverse range of sectors – particularly power generation, industrial construction (including data centres) and large-scale government-funded infrastructure projects. Craig’s global network and extensive experience working on large-scale projects will be key to us delivering on these projects.”
With experience spanning the entire spectrum of execution starting from project development through to site preparation, construction, commissioning, start-up and operations, Goltz has gained a reputation in pioneering new standards of project management for large multi-disciplined teams in complex and difficult environments, said a statement from The Men From Marr’s.
“Having worked across a number of remote and culturally diverse locations across the globe, I understand what is required to overcome the logistical and cultural challenges of a project,” Goltz said.
Highlighting that Marr’s own internal culture was a drawcard in joining the team, Goltz added: “Although Marr’s forward-thinking approach is entrenched in innovation, there’s an old-fashioned honesty, integrity and humility in how they tackle a project which is supported by a team of deeply loyal, dedicated and competent people.”
