Global Executive Leadership Team / Rebecca De Cicco.

Rebecca De Cicco

Rebecca has always had a keen interest in how digital technology and process impacts the built environment. Her career began as an architect in Australia but moved into technology and BIM related roles where she was able to influence organisations and employees on the benefits of digital in the workflow when designing and constructing assets.

After a series of successful senior roles in Architectural practices in both Australia and the UK, Rebecca gained her Masters in Construction Management and became a fellow of the Chartered Institute of Building (FCIOB). Whilst in the UK Rebecca was involved in multiple voluntary initiatives across the Built Environment such as the BIM Task Group BIM 2050 team and regularly presented at industry events on BIM and the importance of the Government BIM Policy. She also regularly presents at Autodesk University and many other global conferences and acts as an Autodesk Expert Elite and thought leader in the BIM and technology space. 

Rebecca founded Digital Node in 2012 after working in the construction industry for over 15 years and as a result of the uptake of BIM in the UK and globally. The core business provided advice and insight to construction professionals all over the world on BIM, Digital Engineering and technology led productivity. In March 2021, Digital Node was acquired by Aurecon, where she now acts as the Principal, Digital Enablement and provides leading digital transformation and BIM capability to its people, clients and projects. Her work across the group focuses on advisory as well as upskilling and educating industry in the adoption of digitally focused processes, requirements and technologies, all of which are a great passion to her.  

Rebecca has always had a passion for diversity in the built environment and founded the global community Women in BIM in 2012. This was a response to the growing need for more women in BIM as well as to address the wider global issues of inclusivity and equality across the construction industry. Now in its 9th year, WIB has now grown to over 1,000+ members across our channels, extending to women in six out of the seven continents and continues to grow its global reach with regional representatives positioned all over the world.
