Alistair started his working career at the Ford Motor Company in 1982 as a first class sheet metal worker. After completing his apprenticeship, he attended RMIT university to obtain aircraft sheet metal modules that helped him secure a position with the Government Aircraft Factories in 1987 where he worked as an aircraft sheet metal worker assembling military aircraft. In 1989 Alistair joined Asta Aircraft Services as a Structures Aircraft Maintenance Engineer preforming Boeing 747 heavy maintenance work. During this time, Alistair held varying supervisory positions until 1996, when the company closed down. Alistair had his first introduction to continuous improvement with ASTAAS in the form of TQM (Total Quality Management). For the next 12 months, Alistair ran a small resource provider business to the aviation industry, until he joined Air New Zealand in Auckland in 1997, as an Aircraft Maintenance Engineer. While with Air New Zealand, Alistair was given opportunities to perform other roles which included supervisor, induction trainer, structures technical engineer.

As well as being a member of the Special Assistance Team. In 2001 Alistair returned to Australia and joined Qantas in Sydney as an Aircraft Maintenance Engineer and transferred to Melbourne later that year in the same role. In 2002, as an elected OH&S representative, Alistair was given an opportunity to design and implement a risk facilitation system for an upcoming Worksafe audit. Due to the success of this system and it being rolled out nationally, Alistair took on the role of safety advisor/ risk facilitator on a permanent basis. During 2003 Alistair obtained his Cert IV in training and assessment and designed and implemented a number of safety related training programs, that again, were rolled out nationally across Qantas Engineering.

During 2004 Alistair was presented with an opportunity to join the Quality Department as a Trainer in Human Factors (errors in aviation maintenance) and helped design a national training program that was rolled out across the entire Qantas network. In 2005 Alistair joined the Qantas Engineering National Lean Sigma team. His role there was to develop and deliver Lean Sigma training programs across the Qantas Engineering network while building Lean Sigma and leadership capability across Qantas Engineering. During this time he obtained Recognition in Lean Leadership, Six Sigma Black Belt and Project Management. In 2006 he was appointed National Lean Sigma training manager for Qantas Engineering. In the time that Alistair spent with the national Lean sigma team, they built capability in over 3500 employees in relation to Lean, Six Sigma, People and Leadership. Which meant in early 2007, there had been enough capability built that Alistair had successfully done himself out of his job and was looking for his next challenge. This next challenge came as the Operations Manager of the Heavy Maintenance workshops at Avalon. Over the 3 year period, the Heavy Maintenance workshops were transformed from a shrinking business into a growth area where previously outsourced work was in-sourced with productivity levels up and staff had ownership and accountability of their own work areas. This change process was completed in conjunction with all staff, Union delegates and HSRs. In 2010 Alistair was subsequently invited to join the Qantas Engineering Service Quality team as a Business Improvement/People & Leadership coach. This role involved working with the executive leadership teams at each of the bases in relation to business improvement opportunities and how their decision making processes and behaviours affected morale and productivity.

In early 2012 Alistair joined the City of Melbourne’s Parking and Traffic Branch as the Program Manager Business Performance where he was responsible for Business Planning and Risk, Data management and Continuous Improvement. Later that year, Alistair was successful in his application as the Branch Manager Parking and Traffic. With around 220 staff who provide services to 38 square kilometres of the City’s municipality including Parking compliance/education, local laws, animal management, school crossing supervision, reserved parking, parking permits and infringement review, the team also manages the infringement lifecycle, prosecutions and debt management. Since Alistair has been in the role, his focus has been around branch stability, staff, team and leadership development with a view to building a sustainable branch in to the future.
