Anthony Esposito is an independent senior infrastructure executive with diverse experiences having worked in partnership with Government, public and private clients for over 30 years. As a commercial and technical advisor, Anthony consults, plans, advises, mentors and coaches, implements, embeds the lessons whilst handling a range of key strategic and tactical interventions domestically and across the near region.
Anthony commenced his early working life as a Carpenter and Joiner and qualified Master Builder prior to joining the RAAF where he flew with 11 Squadron as an Airborne Electronic Analyst throughout the 1990`s. As a veteran, his military career influenced strong behavioural and cognitive skillsets of teamwork, critical thinking, problem solving and relationship management across diverse multi-disciplinary teams and environments.
In 2000 Anthony returned to the construction industry holding senior project management and director appointments both contractor and client-side. This was another exciting period of his life embedded with highly skilled teams again, planning and delivering major capital infrastructure projects, executing complex tasks whilst pursuing innovative solutions to multifaceted problems across the Defence estate and Commonwealths Water, Education and Health sectors. A constant within his client base since 2017, Anthony has coached and mentored 19th Chief Engineer Works project teams to develop greater professional competencies, confidence, and abilities to exercise sound technical and commercial judgements across its Indo-Pacific Step-up and AACAP program of works.
Anthony is invested in the professional development of Army Technical Engineers and RAAF Airfield Engineers. Annually he speaks to ADFA and Duntroon cadets and coordinates the Engineer Work Experience (EWE) placements with industry nationally. The program enhances the development of the ADF`s next generation of infrastructure engineers as project managers with skills to perform functions beyond the conventional boundaries of professional competence; to foster early ADF and industry professional relationships, and to provide work experiences that shape understanding which enable informed decisions to be made under conditions of commercial uncertainty. Anthony has a deep love and respect for the ADF and industry and the diverse cross section of Australians these sectors represent.
Amongst his professional activities, Anthony actively retains his building qualifications and proficiencies and continues to build bespoke projects to ‘keep his hand and eye in the game’, and as a reminder of the technical and commercial challenges and difficulties associated with construction. He has a Master of Business Administration (MBA) degree and is currently preparing to undertake his PHD studies in Integrated Project Delivery.
Anthony lives in Sydney and is lovingly married to his wife Inna. He has three adult children Jessica, Luke and Joseph, his daughter in law Laura and granddaughter Ella.
