SENIOR statesman and former parliamentarian Sir Rabbie Namaliu is now chairman of Kramer Ausenco Ltd, a leading engineering service provider in Papua New Guinea and the Pacific region.
Ausenco Ltd acquired 50% of PNG’s Kramer Group toward end of last year to form Kramer Ausenco with focus on delivering engineering and project management services to the growing PNG energy and resources markets.
Kramer Ausenco chief executive Frank Kramer said he was honoured and pleased that Sir Rabbie accepted the invitation to become independent chairman of the company.
“Sir Rabbie has a distinguished and extensive career in the region as a public servant, minister in the PNG Government in various portfolios, leader of the Opposition and prime minister,” Mr Kramer said.
“We are privileged to be able to work with him and benefit from his experience.”
Ausenco chief executive Zimi Meka echoed Mr Kramer’s comments, adding that building strong relationships with respected regional leaders was an important part of Ausenco’s growth strategy.
