Gallagher Jeffs is pleased to announce the appointment of Fonda Zahopoulos and Andy Isherwood to its Executive Team as Directors.
With more than 40 years of combined experience across the project management and construction industries, Fonda and Andy have been instrumental members of the GJs team since joining in 2015.
Fonda delivered exceptional results for GJs between 2004-2009 - leading key Haileybury College and large industrial developments - before stepping away to grow his own commercial building and project management firms until 2015.
Notably, Andy has led the $75M Classic East Melbourne project, whilst international experience has seen him act as the funder’s technical advisor of the world’s tallest building – The 1000m plus Kingdom Tower in Jeddah, Saudi Arabia. Both have played an integral role in establishing a new operations framework focused on high performance and enabling improved client outcomes.
GJ Director, Rob Purdue, said, “Fonda and Andy are both natural mentors and we are thrilled to welcome them into leadership positions in a strategic move that will continue to guide our next generation.”
“The industry is experiencing a new wave of emerging leadership, which we are looking forward to support. What Fonda and Andy will offer GJ’s clients and internal stakeholders, is continued professionalism and an entrepreneurial approach,” Rob continued.
Both ambitious and forward-thinking, Andy will continue to lead GJs Residential sector whilst Fonda heads the rapidly growing Aged Care & Retirement market.
