John Wagner


John is the chairman of Wagner Corporation and a non-executive Director of ASX-listed Wagners, one of the leading construction materials producers in Australia.

Under his family’s leadership, Wagner Corporation entered the aviation market in 2014 through the development of Toowoomba’s Wellcamp Airport (WTB), the first greenfield public airport development in Australia in over 50 years and the first privately-funded airport in the country.

Constructed in under two years, it is billed as the country’s greenest airport due to the use of Earth Friendly Concrete (EFC) which contributed to the project saving some 6,600 tonnes of CO² by using a geopolymer cement in place of conventional cement-based concrete.

He joins Urbanity to discuss the development of Wellcamp Airport and the importance of sustainable infrastructure in Australia’s future.
