Wal King, the CEO of the Leighton Group, nominated John Holland, a subsidiary, to explore the opportunity. John Holland's CEO Bill Wilde led the negotiating team. The deal was quickly clenched and, on 5 December 2002, Guido announced that John Holland had acquired the assets, contracts, property, plant and equipment of Transfield's construction business.
