Billie is an accomplished construction professional with more than 20 years of experience, she is an Associate Director with Turner and Townsend, a world leading professional services company across real estate, infrastructure and natural resources.
Billie’s passion for the industry was evident from an early age. Her father ran a construction company for more than 30 years. Growing and working along his side and watching his passion and commitment to the business she says: ‘I couldn’t help but fall in love with construction’. Her career so far has taken her from the war torn streets of Croatia, to peaceful New Zealand and beyond and for the last three years to Qatar. She has been successfully delivering construction projects across high end retail, hospitality, commercial and educational sectors, most recently completing a high profile exclusive department flagship store – Galeries Lafayette Qatar.
Billie holds Masters in Engineering, Construction Project Management and maintains active interest in supporting and mentoring female counterparts in the industry. That’s how her initiative to establish NAWIC Qatar started.
