Ports NSW Chief Executive, Marika Calfas, has been recognised for her leadership in the infrastructure sector at the National Infrastructure Awards, convened by Infrastructure Partnerships Australia in Melbourne.
“The Women’s Achievement in Infrastructure Award recognises a female in the sector who has consistently made a significant contribution to the development, construction or procurement of infrastructure and services,” said Chief Executive Adrian Dwyer.
“Every year, this award attracts a number of impressive nominees who are making significant contributions to our sector, but it was hard to go past the impact that Marika has made to infrastructure reform and the industry more broadly.
“Marika is leading reform of the sector through her involvement on the National Freight and Supply Chain Inquiry and brings great discipline and leadership to an extremely complex policy area.
“Marika has developed an outstanding reputation across both the public and private sectors for her innovative thinking, professionalism and dedication to delivering world-class services to the people of NSW.
“The national infrastructure sector congratulates Marika on being the recipient of the Women’s Achievement in Infrastructure Award, and thanks her for continued leadership and the model she sets for everyone in the industry,” said Dwyer.
Marika is a Board member of Ports Australia; Australian Logistics Council; and PIANC Australia (the International Waterborne Industry Association), and is also a member of the IPA National Advisory Board.
