In her time at Ampol, she was instrumental in guiding the organisation through significant change in a short period of time.  

Carla shared: The area of operations and maintenance that I specialise in has been vital in improving business performance by ensuring activities, workstreams and projects of significant scope and complexity are completed successfully. Having experienced significant organisational change in a short period of time, I want to impart that knowledge to clients who may be faced with operational challenges and are seeking to generate greater value and efficiencies.”  

Overseeing critical functions, Carla has ensured assets and facilities are operated within defined strategic and operational performance range, with a specific focus on capital expenditure, operating expenses, and investment returns.
