L&B Celebrates 10 Years in Australia

In 2010, the Melbourne based office of L&B celebrated 10 years of service to the aviation sector in Australasia and international growth markets.

Reflecting back on the initial motivation to establish an Australian Division of L&B; Gary Gibb, Vice President of L&B Worldwide Services, remarked, "Firstly there was clearly a need in the market place. Clients were looking for a real choice in the provision of airport planning services. I believed that an organization with the depth of resources and history of L&B and the service culture that has been part of their DNA for 60 years would provide the quality of choice thatwould appeal to our future clients." Another factor in the success of the Australian Division that has grown from a one person operation in 2000 to nine professionals today is the major role of our Melbourne based staff in serving growth markets of Asia, the Middle East, and India and in recent times in Europe, North America, Central and South America. Our export success means that our clients benefit from an expanding pool of Australian based resources that are both attuned to the local market conditions and in tune with international trends. This local experience is supplemented by access to over 100 professionals in the worldwide L&B organization from offices in the USA, China and the Middle East.

"At the end of the day I believe it is all about people; the ability to listen to clients, understand their needs and have a talented pool of airport planning specialists that can respond innovatively and professionally with real solutions that add value. I am fortunate to have a great team here in Melbourne that believes in these principles," commented Gary Gibb.

We are grateful for the trust that our clients have shown in our work and we are proud of what we have achieved over the last ten years. We feel that L&B has earned its place as a key player in the aviation planning community in Australia and the region. Going forward, our clients have told us that they want to hear more of our experience and capability to add value to their businesses. We're listening! Expect to see this happen!
