Multimatic has announced today the appointment of Brad Dunstan (left) to lead its Asia Pacific Engineering Operations, based out of Melbourne, Australia. The establishment of Multimatic Engineering Australia (MEA) is the latest step in the global expansion of the Toronto based company’s engineering group, aimed at facilitating the delivery of full service engineering support to the Australian and Asian markets. Dunstan has 34 years of automotive engineering and technology development experience having held senior positions at Holden and Holden Special Vehicles (HSV), and more recently as the CEO of the Victorian Centre for Advanced Materials Manufacturing (VCAMM).
“Brad’s appointment is a key addition to our global engineering team and will enable Multimatic to strengthen its existing manufacturing operations in the region and in particular further develop its engineering and automotive business in China,” stated Larry Holt, Multimatic’s vice president of Engineering. “I have known Brad for over 15 years and admired the great work he did at HSV and enjoyed our collaborations on landmark vehicles such as the HRT 427 concept car as well as the projects we did with VCAMM in developing new carbon fibre composite manufacturing processes. I am confident that with his automotive engineering skills, manufacturing background and composite materials knowledge he will soon be playing a key part in not only expanding the business aspirations of Multimatic across the Asia Pacific region but also in our global operations.”
