Associate, McKinsey and Company

Garrett Bray’s passion for engineering is an inspiration to other young engineers. Since graduating with first class honours in Civil Engineering and a double major Commerce degree from UWA in 2008, he has accumulated an impressive list of achievements and has extensive experience in engineering design and documentation involving engineering projects across Australia, Indonesia and Tanzania.

He was awarded National Young Engineer of the Year (Engineers Australia 2013), co-founded the organisation 'Australia Bridge', served as chair of FutureNet WA, represented Australia as a young professional panel for International Federation of Consulting Engineers and completed an MBA at UWA as a BHP Billiton scholar.

After six years as Senior Structural Engineer on key infrastructure projects with boutique engineering consultancy BG&E, Garrett is now an associate with top tier management consultancy McKinsey & Company where he consults top management of large companies and government entities on their most pressing issues.


Garrett has worked on significant bridge projects across WA and was a key contributor to BG&E’s growing reputation for specialist LNG tank structures around the world.


Garrett also has a strong interest in humanitarian engineering and has spearheaded corporate social responsibility and engineering aid initiatives across Australia and beyond. He was instrumental in helping successfully drive a pro bono project involving the design and construction of bridges in Tanzania.


Inspired by the success of this project, Garrett took on a voluntary role as Engineers Without Borders Pro Bono state manager where he introduced an idea for a pro bono clearing house, which led Garrett and a group of like-minded professionals to found 'Australia's Bridge', a not-for-profit company with the aim of facilitating and promoting built environment pro bono work for community organisations.

It was with great pleasure that the Faculty of Engineering, Computing and Mathematics announced the winners of the 2015 Alumni Achievement Awards, which included Garrett Bray who won the Young Alumnus Award:
