Bond's Project Management Academic Advisory Member wins National Award

A member of the Institute of Sustainable Development and Architecture’s Academic Advisory Panel Mr Ben Rayward, has been named the 2012 Australia Project Manager of the Year as part of the Australian Institute of Project Management (AIPM) awards.

Mr Rayward, a Principal at Point Project Management, said it was a shared honour to win this award. “Successful projects are not delivered by an individual and I would like to thank all of the great people I have had the pleasure of working with over the past 12 months,” he said.

Mr Rayward’s passion lies in sharing his knowledge and experience with future project management leaders.

At the Institute of Sustainable Development and Architecture, he has worked directly with students on capstone projects, where students consult with industry representatives to develop, implement and report on current industry projects.

“It is my focus to assist with raising project management standards across the profession and I understand the adoption of standards is directly linked to the quality of project managers,” explained Mr Rayward.

Director of the Institute of Sustainable Development and Architecture Professor George Earl congratulated Mr Rayward on receiving the national award. “Mr Rayward’s is to be congratulated on this award; his commitment to the continuous improvement of project management theory and practice is clearly evident through his involvement and contribution to student projects and the Institute’s academic advisory panel,” said Professor Earl.

Mr Rayward maintains an ongoing involvement with the Australian Institute of Project Management as a Certified Practising Project Director and Engineers Australia as a Certified Practising Engineer.

The Australian Institute of Project Management is Australia’s leading governing body in project management and has established the Project Management Achievement Awards to recognise, honour and promote outstanding achievements in program and project management.

The PMA Awards acknowledge the vital role project managers and their teams perform in business and the wider community.
