With a background in corporate Telecommunications, he has delivered multiple projects across Telco/IT, Fibre network, civil and utility asset sectors. Prior to joining TOBA, Alastair worked for Vector Fibre as the Service Delivery Manager to Vector Electricity. Some of his notable project achievements were:

  • Auckland Harbour Bridge - Vector Lights (solution design management & project delivery of the fibre solution for the network communications to the Vector Lights solar & battery systems).

  • Vector Electricity fibre delivery - Led a programme of Vector Fibre substation civil & fibre builds across the central Auckland Electricity network, which enabled the delivery of multiple SCADA WAN and Protection fibre services for the client.

  • Vector Electricity - Off-Grid delivery - Led a programme delivering multiple off-grid (non-fibre network) solutions for remote substation and grid connections for the Vector SCADA network (via third-party ADSL, Wireless & fibre solutions).

  • Auckland Council - WAN deployment project - Delivered 300 plus data network service connections for Auckland Councils community and facility centres.

  • Vector Fibre – delivered multiple network infrastructure asset upgrades and service relocation projects supporting the core data network for Vector Fibre (projects included network node expansions, facility & system upgrades, Ciena OTN platform upgrades).

With TOBA, he is enjoying the challenge of delivery across the energy and construction industries. In a short amount of time, his portfolio has grown to include work across the following sectors;

  • Energy Assets (Transmission Line asset upgrade, Land Acquisitions, Asbestos removal).

  • Construction (Catalina Bay Promenade and infrastructure development).

  • Telecoms/Utility systems (Radio Network upgrade)
