The AFR Fast Starters list recognises Australia’s most successful fast-growing companies.

Co-founders David O’Rourke and Greg Sly have built Projects Assured in less than three years to a team of 90 permanent staff with revenue of $17.66m for the 2017 financial year (158% year-on-year growth).

Projects Assured’s vision is to be Canberra’s premier local management consultancy and Canberra’s best place to work.

“Projects Assured is focused on delivering high quality consulting services to the Canberra market, and is establishing itself as a worthy opponent in a competitive Canberra market,” Executive General manager and Co-founder David O’Rourke, said today.

“We are known for solving our clients’ most challenging problems in the public sector across three areas of expertise: Strategy and Business Improvement, Project and Program Management, and Enterprise Architecture and Technology,” David stated.

“Our people are easy to work with and viewed as affable, able and highly responsive to our clients’ needs.”

Projects Assured says its people are their greatest asset, and their ability to attract and retain talented, energetic and passionate professionals is fundamental to Projects Assured’s growth.

“We strive for an engaged workforce. This means going above and beyond to ensure that every team member is supported as a professional, connected to the company, engaged as an individual and involved with the Canberra community,” David said.

As part of the vision to be Canberra’s best place to work, Projects Assured acknowledges the requirement to consistently satisfy the fundamental needs of all employees.

“In support of our vision and in line with our ‘Work, Live, Reward’ philosophy, our culture is built on ensuring that each and every team member achieves fulfilment across three core pillars,” Executive General Manager and Co-founder Greg Sly, said.

“This involves exposure to challenging and rewarding work, the ability to have a work and life balance, and providing exemplary recognition and reward for people’s efforts and achievements.”
