Defence consultant Daniel Gould joins Geodetica as Senior Project Manager

It has been a busy month for us here at Geodetica, with the onboarding of several new talented professionals to our project team.

Also joining us with over a decade of experience in Defence consulting is Daniel Gould, who we are thrilled to welcome as our newest Consultant and Senior Project Manager.

A former member of the Australian Army, Daniel’s Defence career has endowed him with an exceptional breadth and depth of experience and knowledge that we are excited to be able to tap into at Geodetica. 

“I guess you could say that joining the Army was in my blood – I was an army brat as a kid and spent most of my childhood around Defence. Although I worked as a heavy metal fabricator right out of school, it wasn’t long before I decided to enlist and went on to serve until injury forced me into a career change.

“After that I was presented with an opportunity to continue working in the Defence and National Security space as an above-the-line contractor to Defence. I’ve had the privilege of working on several major projects within the maritime space. I enjoy the complexity the most; every day brings new problems to work through and find solutions for.”

Over the past decade, Daniel has continued to develop his program and project management skills and was recently awarded a Bronze Commendation for his work in the delivery of Navy Capability as part of the Navy Minors Capital Program, where he was the Program Manager.

“I have had the chance to work with several members of the Geodetica team through my work on various Defence programs, and when the opportunity came up to join them it felt like a natural transition.

“Being part of a company that not only acknowledges but actively embraces my experience is a fantastic feeling. I am excited to know that my skills are valued and that I’m entrusted with the opportunity to contribute to new and exciting programs within the Defence space.”

When he’s not working, Daniel spends all his time with his young family at home in Canberra or travelling around Australia in their caravan.

“I have 3 kids under 6 so we’re always busy! My eldest is into cheerleading, which apparently makes me a cheer dad, so I am usually taking her back and forth to training and competitions.

“When we do get a bit of downtime, I am either finishing my studying at Uni (Project Management) or we are off finding a new camping spot where we can load up the caravan and get away for a bit.”
