Graeme McKenzie

Chief Development Officer

Graeme is Mater's Chief Development Officer and a highly experienced project delivery and advisory professional specialising in the delivery and management of social infrastructure and more recently, specifically hospitals and health infrastructure. With more than thirty years’ experience in the property and construction industry, he has developed the expertise to meet the challenges facing the optimisation of a property portfolio.

Graeme has held senior executive roles within both the public and private sectors and most recently in running a specialised consultancy business. These diverse roles have provided differing perspectives to managing people, assets and infrastructure. Combined with his ability to forge strong relationships with private and public health clients across Australia, Graeme is well-placed to understand and address the infrastructure challenges to support the delivery of health services to the community.

In the past 15 years, Graeme has demonstrated executive leadership in the areas of property management, project direction, business case development and the management of billion-dollar health infrastructure projects. Over a seven-year period Graeme provided a range of professional services, including as Program Director, in delivering the $1.5 billion Queensland Children’s Hospital. As Program Director he also led the important commissioning phase for the new $2.4 billion Royal Adelaide Hospital, a public-private partnership for the South Australian Government. Graeme joins Mater from his role as Project Director for the new Surgical, Treatment and Rehabilitation Service (STARS) project being delivered at Herston.
