Regional Manager - Linden Denholm
Linden started his career as a Building Cadet with the SHAPE Victoria team, while completing a Master of Construction Management and Bachelor of Environments. Following his cadetship, Linden held various roles within the Melbourne branch, including Estimating Coordinator, Project Coordinator, Project Engineer and Project Manager. During his career, Linden has developed an open and honest approach to all aspects of construction, with a focus on understanding a client’s key drivers and how to best exceed them. His experience delivering multi-million-dollar projects, commitment to sustainability and passion for building a constructive workplace makes him the ideal candidate to head up SHAPE Newcastle and shape the city he loves.
A Novocastrian, Linden grew up five minutes from the beach and loved every minute of it – despite the fact he still can’t surf. While living in Melbourne, he fell in love with AFL and is now a die-hard Geelong fan.
