Kevin Gallagher, CEO and Managing Director of Clough, one of Australia’s most established engineering and project services companies, beat more than 100 of Australia’s top business leaders to be named the CEO of the Year at CEO Magazine’s 2013 Executive Awards in Sydney.
Under Kevin’s leadership, Clough has achieved unprecedented success through a strategy focused on project execution excellence, cost efficiency and enhanced productivity.
“The judges were completely knocked out by the year that Kevin had achieved, though more important was the dedication and promotion of his staff and colleagues in a highly volatile industry,” said Australian television presenter and businessman Eddie McGuire. “Kevin has shown that old fashioned values combined with innovation and a real feel for business won the day. Kevin was a very popular winner and even more so after his generous acceptance speech. All class.”
At the same awards ceremony Kevin was also voted the Energy and Resources Executive of the Year.
Kevin is widely recognised for delivering record results, despite turbulent market conditions in the resources sector.
Clough is known for providing services across the full project lifecycle to some of the world’s largest energy and resource companies. Its business model reduces risk while optimising safety, productivity and cost across every phase of a project.
