In my experience the competitive tension and the discipline required by Government agencies and the private sector in PPPs (where they are appropriate) drives excellent results for taxpayers.

James Mitchell, Technical Director - PPP and Specialist Services

James Mitchell is our resident PPP specialist and is considered a trailblazer in PPP industry circles. Having commenced his career in land valuation, commercial property sales and property development, James was part of the early industry response to the modern Public Private Partnership (PPP) model for delivering major works in Australia.

Having been engaged by a number of industry heavyweights including Baulderstone, ABN AMRO, Brookfield Financial and John Laing in various roles, James has developed PPP bids for health, justice, sports, education, transport and emergency services facilities. It’s this depth of experience that enables him to understand what his clients need to optimise their offer or get the most from the market.

James is happiest when in the thick of a bid; delivering rigorous advice as part of financial advisory teams on complex projects; and consulting clients on maximising their capital for optimal financial returns on large infrastructure projects. He is also sought by our clients for his capability in property development conceptualisation and delivery, management of financiers’ due diligence processes, and integration of CAPEX and OPEX solutions.
