InfraBuild Announces New CEO
As of the 1st of July 2021, ASA member InfraBuild will commence operations under a new CEO, Mr Vik Bansal. Mr Bansal joins the team after six years with Cleanaway- one of Australia’s leading waste management companies, and after an extensive career in various other executive roles across Asia, Australia and The USA over the last 20 years. One of these positions Mr Bansal held included General Manager of OneSteel (which now operates under InfraBuild) for three years.
Mr Bansal has also been a member of the board at InfraBuild as Chief Executive and has had time to adjust to the idea of his new role. With plenty of experience to his name, Executive Chairman Sanjeev Gupta reassures that the transition to CEO won’t be too much of a challenge for Mr Bansal to adjust to saying, “Vik knows our industry very well and has run the board as a successful chief executive, creating value and driving business transformation. He is aligned with our plans for InfraBuild, and the board is pleased to have him joining us to build on the exceptional work of Dak Patel (current CEO/Executive Director) and the team.”
Mr Patel plans to stay on board as a director, whilst ensuring the transition runs smoothly. Mr Patel stated: “We have been planning for this transition for some time and Mr Bansal’s appointment aligns well with the future ambitions of InfraBuild," he says.
In response to the announcement of his new position as CEO, Mr Bansal says he’s looking forward to his future with InfraBuild stating, “I am incredibly encouraged by the company’s results, its prized infrastructure and competitive positioning. With strong market demand, InfraBuild is well-poised to continue on its recent trajectory.”
