On 1st July 2018, Provecta Process Automation (“Provecta”) announced a change in management which is the first change in the company’s 15 years history.
Mr Andrew Oates who has guided Provecta for the last 15 years has stepped down as Managing Director of the electrical engineering and consulting company and will take up a new role as Director – Business Development. He will also continue as a member of the company’s board of directors.
Mr Oates was the Managing Director from the first day of Provecta’s existence and has seen the company grow from the initial four Sydney based employees, back in 2003, to 35 staff in offices in Sydney, Brisbane, Perth and Chicago USA. During Andrew’s tenure the company has won numerous awards with the most prestigious being the 2005 NSW Small Business Award.
“It’s a good time for Provecta to commence the management succession process and for me to take a step back from a full-time executive role to allow this to occur. I will still contribute to the growth of Provecta via the Business Development position” Andrew Oates said.
Mr Anthony Buncombe (shown opposite) who has been the Engineering Manager for Provecta for the last 15 years will move into the Managing Director role. Mr David Parslow will slot into the Operations / Engineering Manager position vacated by Mr Buncombe.
