Former partner takes to firm's new CEO role

Former partner takes to firm's new CEO role

Brad McCosker

An Australian law firm has welcomed the appointment of a former partner, who will take to its newly created position of chief executive officer.

McCullough Robertson has announced that Brad McCosker (pictured) commenced in his new role this week, which was created to help drive the firm’s “strategic priorities and provide a robust platform to ensure continued competitiveness and profitable growth in a dynamic market”.

In his new role, Mr McCosker will play a strong part in contributing to the firm’s leadership programs, focusing on partner performance, the strengthening of partners, staff engagement and championing future leadership initiatives.

Mr McCosker held his former position as partner with McCullough Robertson from 1994 to 2014. During his 20-year tenure he took on various leadership positions, including on the firm’s executive committee.

Mr McCosker’s broad knowledge base has seen him advise clients in construction, engineering, mining and infrastructure, both in Australia and internationally.

Upon his departure from McCullough Robertson in 2014, Mr McCosker remained closely connected to the firm as a member of its alumni program and as an adviser to a number of clients, working closely with the firm’s local government industry group.

A media release issued by McCullough Robertson said that as part of Mr McCosker’s CEO appointment the firm will shift the focus of its executive committee, repositioning it to become “more strategic and future-orientated”.

The statement also noted that the CEO appointment has not affected another senior position, with Dominic McGann remaining as the firm’s chairman of partners.
