Sydney Metro’s CEO steps down

Juan Santamaria, previously Managing Director of CPB Contractors, has been promoted to CEO and Managing Director of CIMIC Group. He will begin in the new role on 5 February 2020.

Dr Jon Lamonte will step down from the Chief Executive role at Sydney Metro following three years in the position.

New South Wales Transport and Roads Minister Andrew Constance announced the change in late February.

Lamonte will be moving overseas for an alternate career path.

Constance thanked Lamonte for his service to the people of NSW.

“Dr Lamonte has had an important role over the past 2.5 years stewarding the NSW Government’s Sydney Metro program – the largest public transport program in Australia,” Constance said.
