Michael Henderson has announced he will leave Perth-based architects Carabiner (formerly Sandover Pinder) after two decades as executive chair and chief executive.

Stepping away from the firm to pursue community projects and dedicate more time to his medical business, Mr Henderson has sold his equity to his long-time business partners David Karotkin and Peter Giangiulio.

“I am delighted my close friends David and Peter have acquired my equity and I know that with their passion and skills Carabiner will continue to thrive,” Mr Henderson said.

“This is an amazing architectural practice. Together with David and Peter, and a passionate team of really smart, innovative people, I’ve enjoyed helping deliver some terrific projects, not only here in WA, but interstate and internationally.” 

Sandover Pinder was established in 1995, following the merger of Sandover Architects and Pinder & Partners, changing its name to Carabiner in 2018.

Notable projects by the firm include the award-winning WA Institute of Sport, State Rugby Centre, Cockburn ARC, as well as the soon-to-be-built State Football Centre.

Carabiner has also carved a speciality in the education sector and was one of the biggest winners of the state government’s COVID-19 stimulus securing four contracts to redesign public schools in recent months.

Mr Henderson said he would now primarily focus on growing his global remote healthcare services business Emergency Triage Services, which works with mining, engineering, oil and gas and other companies, and would continue his community commitments.

Those include as the Hockey WA president, a board member of the WA Ballet, founder and chair of non-profit organisation International Skills and Training Institute in Health and as a professorial fellow at the University of Western Australia.
