Julien Van Den Berg

Chief Operating Officer (COO)

 

“Design thinking and problem solving doesn’t begin or end on the drawing board. It’s something we do across all our operations.”

A positive disruptor, Julien is Chief Operating Officer at AJ+C, tasked with developing and refining our business strategies and procedures in pursuit of excellence. As an architect himself, Julien understands the design process intimately and the stress points of a project timeline. Julien’s benchmarks for practice operations are the same aspirations we have for all our projects – creativity, sustainability and innovation.

Julien leads our professional services team in developing strategies for business development, talent recruitment, financial, technical and knowledge sharing systems, and successfully steered our COVID response through 2020-21. Julien is a member of the Practice of Architecture Committee of the Australian Institute of Architects (NSW Chapter), where he advocates for best-practice across the profession, from design to studio management, and in particular the development of leadership skills.
