Survey Task Force has appointed a new Director of Business and Projects (Vic) to increase the visibility of surveying as a career, encourage industry involvement.
The new Director, Kellee Ireland, is well known in the spatial and surveying industry and has a track record in successfully leading businesses, building relationships and delivering results.
“Kellee is a passionate, enthusiastic and energetic leader. Her collaborative style and practical approach to problem solving is exactly what the Survey Task Force needs to continue to grow and make a difference,” said Survey Task Force chairman, George Havakis.
Prior to joining the Survey Task Force, Ireland worked as the SSSI Vic executive officer and SIBA/GITA executive director.
In 2017 she was a finalist for the Telstra Business Woman of the Year Award (Vic) and was the inaugural winner of the SSSI Victorian Women’s Leadership Award.
Ireland is also an active contributor to the Smart Cities Council Australia New Zealand Digital Twin Strategy and an honorary fellow member of the Centre for Spatial Data Infrastructures and Land Administration.
Ireland has already launched a new partner program, which has been developed to provide return on investment for supporters by leveraging connections and mentoring programs. Auspat Land Survey Australia is first to come on-board as a Diamond Partner.
The Surveying Task Force Inc. was established as an independent not-for-profit organisation, in 2008. Over the past 12 years, with financial and in-kind support from Victorian surveying stakeholders and Victorian surveying businesses and individuals, it has raised and expended over $1 million. This has included the development of the A Life Without Limits brand, website and systems approach which has been broadly recognised as a highly successful campaign.
