Corporate Cayalyst Team
Corporate Catalyst Team
Catalyst Project Consulting has been named in the prestigious 2017 Australian Financial Review (AFR) Fast Starters list, as the 85th fastest growing start-up business in Australia.
Catalyst was established by Kris Leck in 2013 as a client side project management team and with business partner Anthony d’Arcy has to date completed 35 projects ranging from large commercial developments through to mixed-use and residential projects. Currently managing $290 million in projects, the consultancy also provides tailor-made and costeffective services that range from specific project elements, such as feasibility studies, through to complex end-to-end project and development management solutions for any size project.
An AFR Fast Starter must have started trading after 1 July 2013, be turning over greater than $500,000 for the 16/17 financial year and must show independent verification of increasing revenue every year. The source of revenue can’t come from one client or customer, government grants or start-up funding, and they must be Australian owned.
Catalyst director, Kris Leck, said that Catalyst was committed to refining their service offering and expanding sector coverage to meet peaks and troughs in the market.
Catalyst specialises in project, development management, town planning, feasibility studies, due diligence and construction consulting. It is located on the corner of King and Wolfe Streets in Newcastle and currently has a core team of six people.
