Mark James

Mark is an electrical engineer with over 35 years of experience in the design, installation and management of both Distribution and Zone Substation works within the Victorian Power Utility industry. His Distribution skills extend across overhead line, underground cable and substation project design and has worked extensively in the Victorian “Turn Key” contestable land development market.

Mark started as an Engineer-in-training with SECV in 1981 and progressed to design and construction team leader roles in the mid-eighties before moving to more senior management roles in the nineties with Eastern Energy (now AusNet Services). Since then, he has held senior management roles at Alinta, Jemena and most recently as Stations Design Manager at Powercor/Citipower.

Mark is currently managing the distribution team in Victoria with a specific focus on the newly created teams at Narre Warren and Morwell. Until recently, much of the work done has been direct for long term utility clients Powercor/Citipower and AusNet Services however, with the opening of the two new offices, the expansion of team resources and skills has enabled works to also now be done for developers and development consultants for their “Turn Key” contestable developments.
