New Partners and New Generation of Leadership at RISC Advisory


RISC Advisory CEO Peter Dawson announced today that the board and shareholders of RISC Advisory were releasing equity in the business to attract and retain the best and brightest in the industry to RISC Advisory.

As a first step, and on behalf of the Board and shareholders, Mr Dawson said that he was very pleased to announce the appointment of three new Partners to the business – Martin Wilkes, Gavin Ward and Michael Roberts.

Martin Wilkes, based in Perth, has become a national commentator and thought leader on the Australian gas market, LNG projects and trends in the energy sector. He has increasingly been a spokesperson for RISC Advisory, taking a leadership role within the business and externally with the market.

Gavin Ward, based in London, is the Country Manager for RISC Advisory in the United Kingdom and has been responsible for the expansion of the business into the European, Middle East and North African markets. Gavin is critical to the growth plans for RISC Advisory in those markets.

Michael Roberts, based in Perth, is the Finance Manager for RISC Advisory and has been with the business for 10 years. His appointment as a partner is a reflection of the importance the board and shareholders place on the internal controls and the financial management skills that Michael brings to the business.

In addition to welcoming new partners, Mr Dawson also announced the appointment of Robbie Harrison as a director of RISC Advisory A&D Pty Ltd, the acquisitions and divestments limb of RISC Advisory's diversified business. This appointment formalises the leadership role that Mr Harrison has taken in that business over the past year.

As part of this generational change, Mr Dawson announced that he is to step down as CEO, with Martin Wilkes to be appointed to the new role of Managing Partner and a director of RISC Advisory.

The transition from Mr Dawson to Mr Wilkes is seamless and has been a long time in the planning. It is seen as a natural progression for the business and reinforces the regeneration, dynamism and energy of the organisation. Mr Wilkes will be formally appointed Managing Partner and Mr Dawson will step down as CEO on 15 September 2017.

These appointments are representative of the long-term succession plans of the business and represent the beginnings of a generational change in leadership, underwritten by the continued support of long term partners Geoff Barker, Geoff Salter, Simon Whitaker and Peter Stephenson who remain committed to the business.

The board remains unchanged but for the addition of Mr Wilkes. Mr Dawson will remain as a director and shareholder of the business, providing continuity of knowledge and support to the new leadership group.
