PROFESSIONAL PROFILE NATIONALITY/RESIDENCY

Robin Levison has 30 years experience in understanding, examining

and improving organisations with a specialisation in recognising

excellence in intellectual property (IP), product design or unique

service proposition.

Robin’s key expertise is his ability to recognise and help fund the

growth and internationalisation of innovative products, IP or technology,

whether it be product- or service-based.

In his current role as Managing Director and CEO for Industrea Limited,

Robin is working towards propelling the public company into the ASX

200, which means doubling their current revenue. Industrea was

previously struggling, but Robin had a clear strategy to resurrect it, by

concentrating on equipment and services for the mining industry and

making sure the company delivered what it promised.

Since Robin took the reins, Industrea Limited has gone from being a $2

million revenue company with $19 million losses, to an ASX 300 listed

company with revenues of greater than $300 million and a reported

after tax profits of $60 million since the 2005 financial year!

“The UQ MBA helped me fashion the strategy for the growth of

Industrea and provided an important framework to hang my work

experience off” said Robin.

It is no surprise that Robin’s desire to achieve and motto that ‘nothing is

too hard’ has seen him achieve exceptional personal and professional

success, including receiving the Ernst and Young Entrepreneur of the

Year (Services) in 2008, participating in the Vinnies CEO Sleepout and –

his proudest moment – getting married.

Robin is a fellow and graduate of the Australian Institute of Company

Directors and a member of the New Zealand Institute of Chartered

Accountants.
