Aaron is the Director – Consulting Services and a Senior Consultant Botanist with over 10 years of experience in terrestrial ecology.
He began his career working closely with land managers in montane, sub-alpine and alpine environments from within his specialist consultancy which was bought by Biosis in 2005. Aaron then took up a role with Biosis as Senior Consultant Botanist in Melbourne.
Aaron moved into a management position in 2008 as the Melbourne Resource Group Manager and this was followed by his appointment as Director – Consulting Services in 2011.
In this position, Aaron uses his networking and presentation skills to their full extent, playing an active role across our seven offices in client, ecology and heritage consulting services.
Over the last five years Aaron has worked closely with the Growth Areas Authority and the Victorian State Government on the Strategic Impact Assessment of Melbourne’s urban expansion.
Aaron also continues to provide high level technical advice on a range of major projects throughout south eastern Australia including the Victorian Desalination Project, Peninsula Link and the Melbourne to Geelong Pipeline.
Aaron has appeared as an expert witness before Planning Panels Victoria and the Victorian and Civil Administrative Appeals Tribunal (VCAT).
Aaron has specialist skills in negotiation which are particularly well regarded by clients and regulators. His success as a Project Director on large scale and multidisciplinary projects demonstrates Biosis’ ability to bring together large ecology and heritage project teams who can work closely with clients and Commonwealth, State and Local Government agencies.
Objective, competitive and motivated to contribute to the greater good, Aaron’s role as Director-
Consulting Services is to challenge our people to be their professional best and to deliver best practise consulting to our broad range of clients.
