Meet Bridey

Senior Vice-President
Based: Honolulu, HI

Born and raised in Melbourne, Australia, I’m now lucky enough to be living and working in Honolulu, HI. I like to consider myself equal parts adventurous and cautious (depends on the day of the week!). I spent the early part of my career doing whole life cost modelling in London, before transitioning to P3 advisory. Currently, I work as a Senior Vice-President for WT North America having moved from our Australian business in 2018.

Initially I moved to Santa Cruz, California for a student housing project at UC Santa Cruz. It was here amongst the redwoods my family and myself really got to love the outdoors. Unfortunately that project stalled as a result of CEQA litigation and I jumped at the chance for a new challenge, heading to Honolulu to set up our office over there.

Since arriving in Honolulu, I have been project executive on our largest USA project to date, the NASED program, which has morphed into both a P3 availability payment deal and a real estate deal across nearly 100 acres. This includes project management office services from concept stage right through to project delivery. I am also responsible for WT’s North America financial reporting – I love a good spreadsheet.

With a mandate for growth here in Hawai‘i (as well as the mainland) for the P3 and Real Estate service lines, I continue to test my organizational and business strategy skills in leading the teams responsible for client relationships, advisory services and business development.

The best part of what I do? Reaching key milestones in projects such as Financial Close. Hands down, a close second is being able to do what I do in a number of different countries. I have worked on P3 transactions in England, Ireland, Australia, New Zealand and the U.S and Canada.

A true sunshine person in every way, I enjoy spending time with my family being active outdoors. Hawai‘i is most definitely a great place to call home.

Melbourne Metro P3 –  involves construction, financing and ongoing maintenance of five underground stations and twin heavy rail tunnels underneath Melbourne CBD. Capella Capital was bid leader, debt and equity arranger and equity investor to the Cross Yarra Partnership consortium. I worked as part of the Cross Yarra Partnership consortium as Lender Technical Adviser. Financial close happened just days before I left Australia, it was right down to the wire with getting on the plane for the USA!

Easily Crossrail UK – a £15 billion new railway for London and the South East, running from Reading and Heathrow in the west, including 10 new stations, and 42kms of new tunnels under London to Shenfield and Abbey Wood in the east. I worked as part of the Transcend joint venture (JV), appointed by Crossrail Limited as Program Partner to provide integrated Program Management Services.
