Tony leads our engineering team and materials testing laboratory in Auckland. He is a mechanical and structural engineer with extensive experience in structural design using advanced FRP composites in marine, industrial, civil and land transport applications.
Having graduated as a mechanical engineer from Auckland University in 1999 with a final year spent in the twisted flow wind tunnel with the Yacht Research group looking at Sailing Interaction of Downwind Sails for IACC Yachts, Tony started his career as a naval architect, designing performance sailing yachts, long distance Ocean going power catamarans and passenger ferries. This background in creating energy efficient vessels ultimately led Tony to pursue a career in advanced composites, and to join former High Modulus in 2006 as a structural design engineer.
Tony is a member of Engineering New Zealand, the Royal Institution of Naval Architects and is an IANZ accredited signatory.
