About Cecily ‘Cec’ McGuckin
Cecily McGuckin is proud to be doing things differently. As the first and only female CEO in Australia’s steel distribution industry, she is passionate about driving change and leading the way for women in male-dominated sectors and those heading up family businesses. Her focus on organisational culture and exceptional customer experience is guiding the family business into the next generation.
After beginning her career in finance, Cecily moved into Construction Management. Roles at leading companies including Suncorp and Mirvac followed where she gained a wealth of experience in the day-to-day running of big business and the delivery of large scale projects.
Cecily credits her emotional intelligence and gut instinct as the key drivers behind her success as a CEO. Not to mention her willingness to take a breath and calmly find the right moment to create conversations that generate results.
