When the Executive team of John O'Rourke, Paul Oppenheim and Ray Wilson founded Plenary Group in Australia, they came together to create a new approach to the provision of Public-Private Partnerships (PPPs). They realised that governments were looking to partner with trusted parties who could manage the long-term performance and amenity of critical public assets.
The Executive team established Plenary Group to extend the private sector’s infrastructure remit beyond just construction and financing of infrastructure. Plenary Group was established to also retain long-term ownership stakes and take responsibility for the performance of public infrastructure on behalf of government. We are in it for the long haul – that's what critical high-profile public assets both need and deserve.
The Directors all maintain significant shareholdings in the business and are all committed full-time to growing the business.
