Gina Yazbek says, “In Australia, where the construction sector is primarily male-dominated, my experience as a woman in the industry has presented unique challenges. When I began my career, women were largely underrepresented, particularly in roles outside of traditional office-based positions. Despite these challenges, I was determined to carve out a space for myself in the industry and drive change.”


“I have continuously sought opportunities to challenge the status quo, leveraging my passion for technology and commitment to driving industry transformation. Through dedication, hard work, and a willingness to embrace innovation, I have overcome obstacles and established Commnia as a leader in the construction technology space. Today, I am proud to champion diversity, equality, and innovation, driving our company forward to empower construction professionals with innovative technology solutions. My journey reflects the value of perseverance and the potential for positive change, even in the face of entrenched industry norms.”


The Australian construction industry is currently facing challenging economic conditions resulting from factors such as rising costs, regulatory changes, and supply chain disruptions. This downturn has had a significant impact on builders and contractors who are experiencing financial strain from reduced construction activity and delayed projects. In response to these challenges, Commnia has developed a strategic approach that emphasizes innovation, customer support, and financial resilience. As clients’ needs continue to evolve, the company strives to innovate its products and services to meet emerging challenges. The Commnia team works closely with clients to deliver tailored solutions designed to drive growth and success in the industry.


Over the coming year, Commnia plans to evolve its platform with new features and functionalities to further streamline project management processes and provide customers with even greater value. The executive team will also be exploring opportunities to expand the company’s market presence and reach new sectors where its solutions can have a significant impact. Commnia understands the importance of client collaboration in developing new modules and enhancing existing ones. In the upcoming months, it is dedicated to closely working with clients to innovate and enhance its offerings, ensuring it effectively meets evolving needs. 2024 is set to be a momentous year for Commnia with exciting plans that will reflect the business’s robust commitment to delivering exceptional value to customers.


Reflecting on her future career, Gina Yazbek shares, “My mission is to transform the way professionals in construction view and embrace technology, creating solutions that seamlessly integrate into their daily routines and make them feel truly comfortable with its implementation. Commnia was built by Australian builders for Australian builders and is wholeheartedly dedicated to this cause. Overall, I am excited about Commnia’s future and the opportunities it presents.
