Alexander Wendler, Chief Development Officer, Transport for NSW
Alex is an established leader in the infrastructure industry, both in the public and private sector. He joined the NSW Government in 2016.
His current responsibilities include the leadership of Transport for NSW’s development activities across all transport modes, and the urban renewal portfolio. He is a key facilitator of partnerships with the private sector to enable infrastructure and place programs. In this role Alex challenges TfNSW to think beyond the infrastructure and service requirements and focus on what transport enables, more competitive cities and more liveable communities.
Transport for NSW is delivering AUD 72.2 billion over the next four years – the largest Australia has ever seen – to keep people and goods moving, connect communities and shape the future of our cities, centres and regions. Large-scale projects in development include Coffs Harbour Bypass, Western Harbour Tunnel and Beaches Link, M6 Extension Stage 1, Circular Quay Renewal, future stages of More Trains, More Services, and Central Precinct Renewal.
Prior to his current role Alex led the NSW Government’s transaction team for the sale of 51% of the equity in toll road network WestConnex. The sale closed in 2018 and is the largest trade sale privatisation in Australia with an enterprise valuation of A$25 billion. He also led the negotiations with Macquarie Group on their unsolicited proposal for an integrated Metro station and two commercial tower over-station development at Martin Place in the core of Sydney’s CBD, which reached financial close in 2018. The integrated Metro station will open in 2024 as part of the new Sydney Metro City and Southwest.
Before joining Transport for NSW Alex spent 10 years at Macquarie Capital, where he was a Managing Director in Sydney and London. Alex holds a Master in economics and business administration, as well as an Executive Master in Public Administration.
