Industry Veterans Including Garrett Harley, Former Oracle Construction Executive, Join Company

SAN FRANCISCO--()--Aconex Limited (ASX: ACX), the #1 platform for digital project delivery, today announced several construction technology industry veterans have joined the company. Garrett Harley, former Director of Engineering and Construction Strategy within Oracle's Construction & Engineering Global Business Unit (formerly Primavera), has been appointed Vice President, Strategic Accounts for the Building Sector. He brings over 20 years of experience in engineering construction (E&C) technology, and was recently included in the Influencer50 list as a top industry leader.


“I chose to work for Aconex because I believe in their ability to deliver what no other construction and engineering project management software can provide – a truly collaborative solution that provides complete neutrality,” said Harley. "Aconex is the only connected construction industry platform that is safe, fast and flexible. We have been trusted for the last 17 years and we will continue to disrupt the status quo and lead the way.”

Mr. Harley is joined by several former co-workers from Oracle's Construction & Engineering GBU who have also joined Aconex supporting the Connected Cost business, including:

  • Guy Barlow, Global Commercial Director
  • Krista Lambert - Senior Product Marketing Manager
  • Matt Miller, Regional Sales Manager
  • Jabin Higgins, Professional Sales Consultant
  • Jared Swartz, Inside Sales Representative
  • Jeff Russell, Account Executive
  • Nicholas Haddad, Account Executive

“As a team, we could have taken our decades of collective industry experience and relationships to any company within this space. We chose Aconex because they are serious about getting a modern project controls solution right,” added Barlow. “Implementing Aconex’s Connected Cost is long overdue for companies struggling to manage cost overruns, increase productivity and drive down risk.”

Connected Cost launched in April 2017 as an addition to Aconex’s industry leading construction and engineering project management software. Connected Cost solves critical issues plaguing asset owners and contractors in the US$10-trillion global construction industry. Since then, companies worldwide have signed up to use the world’s first truly modern collaborative solution for managing project controls.
