InfraBuild partners with Steve Waugh as sustainable steel mission continues

1 June 2023

As we continue to work towards our mission to Build Futures Through Sustainable Steel, InfraBuild has teamed up with Australian Cricket legend Steve Waugh to join us on the journey.

In cricket circles, Steve is regarded as one of the game’s greatest ever captains after leading the Australian Team through one of its most successful periods, including a record 16 consecutive Test Match wins and the 1999 World Cup.

His cricket success is matched only by his philanthropy work, including the Steve Waugh Foundation which specialises in supporting young people and their families suffering from rare diseases.

This week, some of our recycling team members and customers joined Steve for the Foundation’s Golf Day, marking the first event our partnership.

Throughout the year, Steve will be attending customer events at our sites, hosting sessions with our people and helping spread the word about the work InfraBuild does as an employer of local people, supporter of local businesses and a contributor to local community initiatives.

Our Interim CEO and Managing Director Dak Patel said the partnership with Steve provided opportunities to draw on his leadership experience and showcase our brand to customers and the broader community.

“Steve’s cricket achievements as a player and captain speak for themselves, but through his tireless dedication to philanthropy post-retirement, he remains a highly respected leader in our community,” Dak said.

“We are very pleased to be partnering with Steve and we look forward to hosting him at our sites and events around the country, as well as showing our support to the Foundation and the great work it does.”

Steve said he was looking forward to working with our team and getting out to sites to see the business in operation.

“Partnerships were the core and foundation of success during my sporting career, and I now look forward to joining the Infrabuild team who share these same traits and values,” he said.
