Sir Rabbie new chair of Kramer Ausenco

SENIOR statesman and former parliamentarian Sir Rabbie Namaliu (pictured) is now chairman of Kramer Ausenco Ltd, a leading engineering service provider in Papua New Guinea and the Pacific region.

Ausenco Ltd acquired 50% of PNG’s Kramer Group toward end of last year to form Kramer Ausenco with focus on delivering engineering and project management services to the growing PNG energy and resources markets.

Kramer Ausenco chief executive Frank Kramer said he was honoured and pleased that Sir Rabbie accepted the invitation to become independent chairman of the company.

“Sir Rabbie has a distinguished and extensive career in the region as a public servant, minister in the PNG Government in various portfolios, leader of the Opposition and prime minister,” Mr Kramer said.

“We are privileged to be able to work with him and benefit from his experience.”

Ausenco chief executive Zimi Meka echoed Mr Kramer’s comments, adding that building strong relationships with respected regional leaders was an important part of Ausenco’s growth strategy.

  “We acknowledge the importance of working with the local communities and their representatives in all our projects and our business,” Mr Meka said.

“It is an important part of ensuring benefits for the people and local communities in which we live and work as well as for Ausenco.

”Kramer Ausenco continues to secure new work on the PNG liquefied natural gas (LNG) Project and in its traditional areas of buildings and infrastructure engineering particularly in the booming PNG real estate development areas.”

Sir Rabbie is also a non-executive director of Marengo Mining Ltd; chairman of the Board of Directors of Kina Asset Management Ltd; and a non-executive director of Kina Securities Ltd.
