AMCA Australia is excited to welcome Angela Olsen to our growing team 

AMCA Australia is excited to announce that Angela Olsen officially commenced work in the role of Queensland State Manager this week. 

The appointment comes after a long and highly competitive recruitment process, which serves as a testament to Angela’s industry knowledge, specialist skills, and experience working within membership associations.

Angela joins the AMCA team after more than a decade of advocating for the building industry at the Housing Industry Association.   

With a construction law background, Angela has extensive experience in construction contracts, dispute resolution and contract administration.   

Having worked in both industry roles and private practice law, Angela has both a technical and practical viewpoint for all aspects of construction law.

Away from work, Angela’s young family—including husband Ben and sons Harry and Max—keep her active.

In welcoming Angela to the team, Chief Executive Officer Scott Williams emphasised her unique mix of specialist skills, industry knowledge, and association experience.

“Angela has an excellent reputation—both as a solicitor and someone who understands the unique demands of working within a membership organisation,” Mr Williams said. 

“Her appointment is a significant addition to our team and organisational capabilities. We’re very excited to have a dedicated state manager in Queensland at such a critical time of regulatory reform and economic uncertainty”.

Mr Williams also said that Angela’s appointment highlights the AMCA’s commitment to championing more women in leadership roles within the broader construction industry. 

“While Angela was unquestionably the standout candidate, we are still very proud to appoint a female leader within our industry and know she will make an important contribution on this issue in future.” 

“We are delighted Angela has chosen to continue her career at the AMCA, and we look forward to introducing her to members across Queensland soon.”
