Sally Glen

Director, IPA Asia-Pacific


Sally heads up IPA’s Asia-Pacific operation. In this role, she is responsible for continuing to strengthen IPA’s relationship with global and local clients in the region, including renewables, mining and minerals, oil and gas, power and infrastructure, new ventures, and other industries. Her focus is on collaborating with client capital champions and decision makers to enable IPA clients to manage project risk and innovate and improve within their capital project systems. Sally was IPA’s Global Manager of Mining, Minerals, & Metals (MMM) between 2021 and 2023 and strengthened IPA’s relationships with global and local clients investing in capital projects in the MMM sector following a long period of low investment in the sector.

As Director, Sally has overseen the rebuilding of IPA Australia since 2020, after spending 5 years away from IPA working in the media and telecommunications sectors. She spent 2 of those years running the construction program for Australia’s National Broadband Network, the country’s largest infrastructure project. As a previous director and senior analyst at IPA Australia and having started her career as a Project Manager at Rio Tinto, Sally has personally reviewed hundreds of capital projects, spent nearly 10 years delivering construction projects, and has a particular interest in the study of leadership. Sally rolled out the Mine Front-End Loading Index at the 2005 Industry Benchmarking Conference and researched and presented IPA’s Hot Spot Research for Western Australia during the resources super-cycle in the mid-2000s. Sally has been client coordinator for three of IPA’s largest clients from the mining, minerals, and metals and oil and gas industry sectors, and has been a Senior Instructor across a range of capital effectiveness-related topics for the IPA Institute. She has reviewed projects throughout the Asia-Pacific, South Africa, Canada, and South America. Outside of work, Sally is a trained volunteer surf lifesaver and has two teenage daughters.
