​TransGrid’s Managing Director Peter McIntyre has again been named among the elite list of his peers with his inclusion in Engineers Australia Top 100 Most Influential Engineers.

For the second consecutive year, Mr McIntyre has been included on the annual list, which profiles influential engineers from a broad range of industries including innovation, consulting, manufacturing and utilities.
