peckvonhartel was delighted to note the appointment of Catherine Townsend, a peckvonhartel alumni, as ACT Government Architect.

Jill Garner, another peckvonhartel alumni, is of course the current Government Architect in Victoria.

Catherine was a Principal in our ACT office, a role she shared with Jo Metcalfe, now General Manager ACT and Southern NSW for GHD.

The Practice has always looked for and developed leadership skills in its staff, and while taking no credit for the later development in Catherine and Jill we take pride in their achievements as we do with the many peckvonhartel alumni and team members.
