How Loretta is building a better working world

“As a young female engineer working in remote locations across offshore oil and gas projects, I developed a unique appreciation for the value infrastructure can bring to communities and cities alike.

Simply put, it is the foundation on which modern society is based.

It is this appreciation that has driven my determination to lead high-performing teams to help people, clients and organizations deliver both large-scale sustainable infrastructure programs and business transformations, that makes the working world a better place for today, tomorrow and future generations.”
