Senior Advisor - Melbourne
Geoff started working with Planum on specific transactions in 2020, adding his deep experience to the team, and reuniting with some old colleagues.
Geoff has developed his expertise over the last 25 years as a lawyer, financial advisor, project sponsor and lender. He was a partner at law firm Blake Dawson (now Ashurst), advising on the first PPPs in Victoria, Queensland and Western Australia, a new ammonia plant on the Burrup Peninsula and numerous other projects. He then moved into financial advisory, heading the ABN AMRO / RBS / MUFG team, acting as sponsor and advising on numerous infrastructure projects, across heavy rail, light rail, roads, health, education, property and water. His last corporate role was leading MUFG’s project finance team that became the number one lender across both infrastructure and renewables in Australia, with over A$6.5bn in loans across 72 projects.
These roles have given Geoff broad exposure and deep insight into the infrastructure and renewable sectors, which he brings to select assignments with Planum.
