Asset Management is a Team Sport – The Local Governments Experience
Austin’s asset management journey started as the CVRD’s Energy Manager in 2015. In 2016 he was assigned Asset Coordinator, a brand new position for the organization. Since that time the CVRD has refreshed asset inventories, developed a condition assessment framework, defined levels of service, and developed a climate risk assessment tool across all asset systems. This work formed the baseline information for the CVRD’s asset management program and the preparation of the Corporate Strategic Asset Management Plan. His academic background includes an MBA in Renewables, from the Beuth University of Applied Science in Berlin, Germany and B.Sc. in Environmental Science, from Royal Roads University in Victoria, BC.
