Kellie Dean was announced as Professional of the Year last night at the national Asia-Pacific Spatial Excellence Awards.
Kellie is Regional Manager at Veris for our Victorian and Tasmanian operations.
Kellie has been a trailblazer for women in the surveying and spatial industry.
She is one of only 16 women licensed surveyors practicing in Victoria.
She was the first woman to become the President of the Institution of Surveyors, Victoria, in the almost 150 year history of the organization. Kellie has used her position to progress the profession towards better gender balance and diversity.
Her leadership continues beyond the ISV Presidency with encouragement of women to become involved in professional life and has become a convenor of the Space, Spatial and Surveying Diversity Leaders Network.
