Welcome to the team, Rob!

We would like to introduce you to our newest Senior Consultant, Dr Robert Hortle.

After completing a Masters and PhD in international development at the University of Oxford, Rob started working in management consultancy to gain project management and business development skills to complement his academic research background. With over ten years of combined experience in international development, academia, and consultancy, Rob is a great addition to the team and will be an asset as part of continuing to deliver high quality work domestically and overseas. We asked him what he hopes to achieve during his time at Sustineo:

“Overall, I hope to contribute to Sustineo’s driving goal of supporting positive and sustainable social, economic, and environmental change in Australia, Asia, and the Pacific. In particular, I hope to work in close partnership with organisations across the Pacific to improve the lives of people in the region. I’m also excited to learn a lot from my new colleagues (there’s so much academic and practical expertise at Sustineo!) and hopefully help the team build its capability by passing on some of the lessons I’ve learned from working at a big multinational company.”

We’re excited to be growing our team this year and expanding our capacity to deliver high quality, high impactful research. Watch this space for updates on some projects we’ve already got Rob working on!
