It’s not an easy feat for everyone, but 460 degrees Project Delivery expert Matt Pentney has it down to a fine art. Thanks to a 12-year career in the Australian Defence Force, Matt understands the Defence ecosystem inside and out and has brought the skills honed through managing multi-skilled teams domestically and internationally into his role at 460 degrees.
Having spent years in the Australian Army in high pressure roles, Matt’s certainly no stranger to meeting deadlines while maintaining an impeccable attention to detail. His ability to effortlessly switch from high-level problem solving, to detailed scheduling and risk management is instinctive.
