New Faces of the CIBSE ANZ Committee

Back to CIBSE ANZ home

The 32nd CIBSE ANZ Annual General Meeting was held earlier this month where two new Chapter Chairs were welcomed to the regional committee. Sean McKeag as Victoria Chapter Chair and David Brown for South Australia.

Sean returned to Melbourne in late 2016 after nearly 10 years in United Arab Emirates and brings international experience to the role as Victorian Chair. Sean views continued professional development as a fundamental part of career development and has plans to promote a variety of technical opportunities for members in 2019.


 “We are looking to provide broad range of subjects for members covering all disciplines to encourage collaboration amongst peers. This will include technical seminars, technical workshops together with site inspections/tours for CIBSE and YEN members.  We are also looking to collaborate with other professional organisations such as Chartered Institute of Building (CIOB).”

In South Australia, David Brown brings six years of CIBSE committee experience to the role of SA chair in additions to positions held with ARIAH and IPEA. David works for Global Intertrade as their Commercial Property Manager and his specialty is developing the outcome, whether it's leasing to a new tenant, providing their needs, upgrades to buildings and building services.

Being a small engineering community in Adelaide, CIBSE SA works closely with representatives from AIRAH, IFE, NFIS, IHEA and others to deliver a broad programme of monthly technical events of continued professional development for the South Australian industry.

At the AGM ANZ Chair, Paul Agnus praised the work of Sean and David’s predecessors, Lindy Stephens (Victoria) and David Robinson (South Australia).

“I’d like to acknowledge the sterling efforts of the outgoing Chairs for their commitment, enthusiasm and direction in steering each of their Chapters. They can’t all be here today and will each receive a certificate of commendation from Stephen Matthews, Chief Executive at CIBSE shortly. Please express your appreciation by giving a big round of applause for Lindy Stephens, Victoria and David Robinson, South Australia.”
