Project Description

Meet Shannon

Vice-President (Program Management)
Based: Los Angeles, CA

Over the course of my 20+ year career, I’ve worked in various capacities for companies such as WT Partnership (Asia), CBRE, and Google.  In my role as Vice -President (Program Management) I have been charged with developing WT’s approach and pipeline for major clients, programs and frameworks across our core service-lines in North America of P3 Advisory, Cost Consultancy and Project Delivery.  This is also an amazing opportunity to leverage my extensive international experience in developing global framework opportunities across the WT regions.

Since joining WT originally in 2001, my approach to project delivery and program management is largely inspired by the work I have undertaken as a quantity surveyor and my involvement in globally significant mega-projects. This shapes my commercial management and value-based decision making approach. Apart from the projects and the learning, one of the most valuable and rewarding aspects of my career to date is the opportunity to work alongside many incredibly talented team mates and industry colleagues. I’m also passionate about supporting the growth of our team members at every stage of their career through our mentoring program.

I am a University of Melbourne graduate with a dual-bachelor degree in Planning & Design, Property & Construction.  I currently live and work in Los Angeles California by way of Gisborne, Victoria in Australia.

In 2013, I was part of the core delivery team for the World Trade Center III in Jakarta, Indonesia.  It was a feat of engineering and stretched my skills with its 41 levels, including a 5 level basement.  I learned what secant piling was – and its cost!  The project was complex but the project culture and environment was so rewarding, it really felt like we were doing something ‘big’.  And now, I have a skyscraper to point to and say ‘i built that!’.

TWO BILLION DOLLARS…. City of Dreams, Macau.  A playground for the rising middle classes of mainland China, amongst many others.  There was intricacies about gaming floors, high end hotels, international design and collaboration, all delivered during the global financial crisis.  It took a herculean effort by all to make the project a success and now it stands very proudly as a global example of resort development done right.
