October 2019

In response to continued growth in the Asia Pacific region, Asset Performance Networks (AP-Networks) announces the opening of its new office in Brisbane, Australia to better serve its global clients. This is the firm’s sixth office worldwide, joining a corporate headquarters in Washington, D.C., and offices in Houston, Calgary, Amsterdam, and Singapore. The Brisbane office will be led by Fred Biery, who will serve as Regional Manager.

The Asset Performance Networks, Asia Pacific (AP-Networks, AP) office opened in Singapore in 2017. Led by Managing Director Pete Kwiatkowski, this office has spearheaded growth in the region, including a rapidly growing client base in Australia and New Zealand. Under Fred Biery’s leadership, the Brisbane office will work to support and expand this client base while serving as a branch of AP-Networks, AP.

“I am pleased to join Pete Kwiatkowski and the rest of the Asia Pacific team and plant the AP-Networks flag in Brisbane,” said Fred. “I am also excited to lead our current Australian team in partnering with our clients to improve their performance. Our Brisbane location will also enable us to effectively bring services to new clients in Australia.” Alongside a team of experienced Subject Matter Experts, Fred will serve a client base that includes major companies in the energy, mining, and power industries.

For several years, Fred has been a critical part of the AP-Networks Benchmarking and Predictive Analytics group, where he led the development and continuous refinement of the company’s Advanced Benchmarking Methodology (ABM). Prior to joining AP-Networks, Fred managed the Australian branch office of another consulting firm. He also led that firm’s mining, minerals, and metals business, serving an industry that plays a large role in the Australian economy. In addition to his more than 30 years of experience in cost and risk analysis, Fred holds a bachelor’s degree in Economics from American University and an MBA from The Wharton School of Business.
