Ben Watson

Development Director

Driven by his role in playing an integral part in shaping positive outcomes for clients and the greater community, Ben finds satisfaction in seeing a project ultimately constructed, especially when the optimum potential is realised and enjoyed by the end users.

Coming from a diverse background of valuation, property advisory and project management, Ben brings unique insight into the full asset lifecycle. His strengths lie in the operational discipline he brings to any project and his ability to work collaboratively, bringing stakeholders and teams together to achieve the client’s vision.

A shareholder of Bridge42, Ben joined in 2010 and during this time he was responsible for the management of the Northern Territory operations for 3 years. While enjoying the Territory lifestyle, Ben gained invaluable experience in managing a team, developing the business and building client relationships.

In the development space, Ben has managed land developments in both the Pilbara and Northern Territory where his dedicated ownership delivered both financial and community benefits beyond expectations. He has also optimised development outcomes through leveraging his property advisory experience in the areas of market research and analysis, feasibility studies, business case development and strategic property advice to provide clients with evidence-based strategies.

Outside of work, Ben’s hobbies include running to stay fit and the occasional game of golf.
