Congratulations to Peter Kohler who was awarded the MESA Medal at the AMCouncil annual awards night on Tuesday 4th April 2017 at Victoria Park Golf Course Brisbane.
Peter is a Certified Fellow in Asset Management. As a mechanical engineer he spent some 26 years in the Royal Australian Navy. During that time he championed the principles of asset management and developed and implemented the first CMMS used within the RAN. He left the RAN in 1996 and set up an asset management consultancy, that consultancy continues today. Peter is the Liaison Commissioner for the Asset Management Council, in Australia and a past AMBoK Commissioner. The role of the AMBoK Commissioner is to develop and steward the AM Council's asset management knowledge - hence his involvement in ISO PC251 for the development of the ISO 55000 series Asset Management standard, as well as his involvement with TC 56, the IEC's international Dependability committee.
