Meet Our Leadership Team

The Adept Team cares about our clients and community. We are always happy to help you with your pressure equipment compliance needs.

Rob Svensk – Owner, Director, Technical Manager, RTO Trainer

Rob started Able Boiler Inspections with his wife, Vicki Svensk, 35 years ago with no staff. Through hard work, persistence, relationship building and consistently delivering outcomes/solutions to clients, Rob and Vicki grew Able Boiler Inspections organically, temporarily got bought out by HSB Australia and then bought their business back to become what it is now Adept Engineering Australia with 20 staff.

Rob is well-known and respected in the local community and wider industry. With 35 years of experience in the industry, he is a wealth of knowledge and the most honest person you’ve ever met. He has always gone above and beyond for his clients, which is one of the reasons why we have so many long-term happy customers.

When you receive consultation from Rob, you know that the advice he has given you is tried and true and that it will be a practical and informed solution to your pressure equipment compliance conundrum.

Elizabeth Svensk – Chief Executive Officer, Company Secretary

Liz took over the running of Adept from her mother, Vicki Svensk, four years ago when Vicki was unwell and then passed away from Esophageal cancer.
Liz is passionate about Adept, viewing the company as another sibling. Growing up, she witnessed the triumphs and the trials of the company as her parents would discuss Adept over the dinner table most nights. Coming into the business, Liz felt like a duck to water and was prepared to do what it took to secure the business’s continued success.

Liz has brought new energy into Adept, leading a restructure, a technological systems overhaul, a rebranding and different approach to workplace culture. She is excited to take Adept paperless in 2021 and provide even more value to Adept clients.

Kate Lanzini – Safety and Compliance Manager, RTO Coordinator

Kate came to Adept with extensive quality management experience and a Diploma in Human Resources and Cert. 4 in WHS. She has been at Adept for 4 years and has grown the Adept RTO significantly in a short amount of time.

Kate’s commitment to safety and compliance has been evidenced by successfully achieving all four Adept accreditations and overhauling Adept’s third party compliance/inductions system to ensure no Adept Inspectors are denied entry to our client’s sites. With more than 3,000 clients, this is no small task.

Highly practical and full of charisma, if you need assistance with your high-risk work license or a compliance issue, Kate will get it done right.
