Icon has restructured its NSW leadership team by making two new appointments in its executive team to assist in the company’s growing business ventures. 

This move will aim to drive business across New South Wales and sees Edward Whiting appointed as Icons’ NSW Director and Michael Read as Executive Director. 

Edward Whiting will lead all business operations across NSW and work closely with Michael Read to support strategic leadership and strengthen stakeholder relationships across the company. 

Edward has over 15 years of experience working in the sector and has spent over ten years with Lendlease where he worked across a range of projects.

While Michael takes on new responsibilities at Icon, he will co-currently retain his role as Executive General Manager of Barpa — Icon’s joint venture Indigenous construction company. 

Icon has announced that its priority moving forward is diversification of business opportunities and currently holds $4b worth of projects across Australia.
