Meet Dr. Carmen Wong: leading sustainable development

we have the pleasure of introducing Dr. Carmen Wong, who joined us as the Head of Assets, Planning, and Delivery in March 2024. Let's explore Carmen's background, her passion for sustainable communities, and her unique perspective on Australia.

Background and Passion for Sustainability

Carmen's journey into sustainable development is as diverse as it is fascinating. Starting her career as an electrical engineer in high-tech industries, she later transitioned to the oil and gas sector in Canada, gaining invaluable experience in major projects tendering and development. However, it was her move to Australia in 2011 that set her on a path towards her true passion.

Driven by a desire to contribute to sustainable solutions, Carmen was drawn to Altogether Group by the opportunity to immerse herself in the sustainability space, particularly in recycled water and energy. Her role as Head of Assets, Planning, and Delivery - Water, puts her at the forefront of capital projects, where she and her team oversee everything from planning to construction and maintenance of water treatment plants.

Contributing to Sustainable Communities

Central to Carmen's role is the mission of Altogether Group: building sustainable communities. By harnessing data to forecast water usage and strategically planning infrastructure, Carmen ensures that our projects not only meet current needs but also pave the way for a more sustainable future. Through her leadership, we are not just building water treatment plants; we are nurturing ecosystems of resilience and efficiency.

A Personal Connection to the Cause

Carmen's passion for sustainability runs deep, influenced by her upbringing and personal experiences. Growing up, she witnessed her father's dedication to water filtration, instilling in her a profound appreciation for water infrastructure. This connection was further strengthened when she became one of the first residents of Central Park Sydney, unknowingly living above Altogether's recycled water plant. Now, Carmen brings her expertise full circle, combining her engineering prowess with a commitment to creating thriving, sustainable communities.

Embracing Australia's Wonders

Beyond her professional pursuits, Carmen embodies the spirit of exploration and adventure. As a Canadian expat who now calls Australia home, she eagerly shares her favourite experiences, from swimming with whale sharks in Ningaloo Reef to strolling along the iconic Bondi to Coogee walk. Through her eyes, we gain a deeper appreciation for the natural wonders that Australia has to offer.

Dr. Carmen Wong epitomizes the spirit of innovation and sustainability at Altogether Group. Her journey from electrical engineer to sustainability champion is a testament to the transformative power of passion and purpose. As we continue to pioneer new frontiers in water treatment and community development, Carmen stands as a beacon of inspiration, guiding us towards a future where sustainability is not just a goal but a way of life.
