Leigh Cook - Pacific National
I worked with De-Wayne on the Wiggins Island Export Coal Terminal Project for a period of 2 years. In his position as the owners Commissioning Manager De-Wayne demonstrated strong and compelling leadership with his team while under significant schedule pressure. His skills and management enabled construction areas to be closed-out and commissioned ahead of schedule which was a resoundingly positive experience. Throughout the Project, De-Wayne addressed critical areas under stress with a methodical and logical approach without compromising safety.
