Corporate Management

Downing Teal was established in Perth, Western Australia in 1966 and now has a presence in five Australian cities, and internationally in Brazil, Chile and Peru. We also have alliance partners in South Africa and Canada.

To ensure priority is directed to close engagement with clients, and avoid head-office distractions, our Directors and corporate services staff are located within operating branches. The Accounting and Finance group is based in Brisbane with the Business Systems group located in Melbourne, which facilitates a close association with operational activity and imperatives. Our complete suite of management systems is integrated, allowing this distributed matrix to function and closely support mining, resources and construction business operations.

Downing Teal is a private company owned by staff shareholders.
