Sector-leading service delivery

Operational Leadership Team

The COO's leadership team is focused on developing, managing and delivering quality professional supporting services which assist to position The University of Queensland as a sector leader in these fields.

Greg Pringle, Chief Operating Officer

"My vision for UQ's professional services is for us to be recognised as a professional services leader in our sector. It is my aim to:

  • promote a culture that strives for excellence, fosters communication and celebrates accomplishments;

  • create an environment where people feel safe to speak up and to step up - knowing they are respected and their contribution will be valued; and,

  • afford motivated people an opportunity to grow themselves, whilst at the same time contributing to something bigger than themselves.

In alignment with UQ's Strategic Plan, we are committed to the principles of collaboration, a one UQ approach and providing excellent professional services to our colleagues on and off campus."

—Greg Pringle, Chief Operating Officer
