Vincent Vogt

Vincent Vogt, a professional engineer, has been in the consulting engineering profession for over 46 years. Having been CEO of BFBA Consultants and taking it to Diamond recognition for two years during that time (PMR Diamond Award 2006 and 2009,) he took early retirement in 2007, but after a short break, found that he yearned to get back into the business.

He was asked to mentor for another large international consulting engineering company, Aurecon, where he worked until early 2015.

By then he had established a number of substantial consulting projects and was joined by his son Craig soon thereafter, to formally launch Vogt Consulting.
