In addition to our directors, we have a professional network of people and consultancies with whom we collaborate on major projects.  We have the capacity to draw together teams with expertise across a broad range of skills and experience.

Dr Cameron Gordon

Cameron is an economist, finance academic, former infrastructure public servant, and policy person intensely interested in the emergent transport system unfolding across the world and in literally millions of locales, big and small, in all sorts of environments.  The choices we make now can make what finally develops either the true next generation of moving people and things cleanly, efficiently, and humanely or a muddled and perhaps dangerous mess.  Hence the motivation in developing this site over three years ago.

Cameron recently finished nine years as Associate Professor of Economics at the University of Canberra in Australia.  He has ongoing research appointments as a Principal Investigator with the University Transportation Research Center Region 2 in New York City and a Senior Visiting Fellow with the University of New South Wales -- Canberra.  He has held prior academic appointments in finance with the City University of New York and in public policy with the University of Southern California.  Prior to entering academia he worked with the US Congress, Joint Committee on Taxation; the US Army Corps of Engineers; and the New York City Municipal Water Finance Authority.  He was also a program manager for a major expert panel study of federal facilities management for the US National Academy of Sciences -- Board of Infrastructure and the Constructed Environment.

Cameron established his own consultancy company following his appointment at UC (see:

Cameron teamed up with Economic Connections for the Shelley-Walwa Road project for HVP Plantations.


Lindsay Jacob

Lindsay has spent the last 30 years researching, developing and implementing transport policy with a special focus on land transport, maritime, waterfront and cross-modal issues. Much of this has been involved with strategic ‘framework’ change, where the case for fundamental improvements has had to win the day against entrenched positions and inertia, and a practical approach to implementing new approaches has had to be developed with stakeholders. Lindsay has earned a solid reputation for integrating evidence-based research, policy innovation and an ability to put emerging and complex ideas and policies in clear and forceful written terms – whether papers, submissions or speeches. He has worked on many multi-government and public-private initiatives, and has built up a network of professional contacts. 

Lindsay worked for 22 years in the Federal Department of Infrastructure, Transport, Regional Development and Local Government and its predecessors. During this time he worked on many major COAG, Transport and Infrastructure Council, National Transport Commission, Commonwealth and Austroads initiatives. These included:

- A significant role in developing policy and then drafting the Commonwealth Government’s 2004 AusLink White Paper, which led to a new national land transport investment framework and a significant increase in road and rail infrastructure investment

- The role of principal drafter for the influential 2007 COAG Urban Congestion Review and Australia’s first Intelligent Transport Systems National Strategy (1999).

- Road transport reform, including the first review of the National Road Transport Commission, which evolved into the National Transport Commission.

During his time in the federal sphere, Lindsay also undertook a number of secondments, including to the Waterfront Industry Reform Authority; a senior waterfront users’ group where he worked for its chairman, the CEO of Nissan Australia; and to Intelligent Transport Systems Australia. Lindsay was private secretary to the federal transport minister for several years and worked also for the NSW Government’s maritime agency.

Lindsay left the Australian Public Service in May 2009 and became a freelance transport consultant teaming up with Economic Connections. Lindsay has spent the last four years working in other federal departments, including continuing his focus on policy drafting.

Lindsay holds a B. Ec. (Hons) (University of Sydney).
