Invesis targets Australian expansion

Infrastructure investor Invesis has appointed a new business development lead in Australia as it looks to expand its position in the country.

The firm has appointed Liselotte Koppenol to the role, which will see her looking to leverage Invesis’s position on Queensland’s AU$6.3bn Cross River Rail project to grow its presence in the country’s PPP market.

Koppenol joined Invesis in 2021 as a bid manager in Belgium and the Netherlands, working on prisons, schools and roads, while also undertaking market and regulatory analysis. She will now focus on building the firm’s Australian market, having recently moved from the company’s Dutch headquarters to Australia.

“We are in a growth strategy; bearing in mind our impressive twenty-year track record in European PPP and attractive proposition, we think it makes perfect sense to take that offer beyond our existing North West European core markets,” said David Swarbrick, chief investment officer at Invesis. “So, we are targeting new markets across the globe, with Australia and the United States at the top of our list.”
