Hawkins Construction is pleased to announce the appointment of Gary Walker as Auckland Regional Manager, effective immediately.
Gary joined Hawkins to lead the pre-construction team in August 2009. When this business unit became part of the Auckland regional structure in 2011 Gary moved to a broader role as Manager - Strategic Projects.
Dan Ashby, Executive General Manager, Hawkins Construction says that Gary has been a key member of the regional team and made a strong contribution to major projects across the national business.
”Gary worked in a wide range of senior construction and design-related roles worldwide. He has significant experience in the leadership of multidisciplinary design teams, multiple stakeholder environments and the management of large construction teams. His experience on large-scale developments from inception to completion using varied forms of procurement contracts and joint venture arrangements have been, and will continue to be, invaluable for Hawkins in the future”, says Dan.
Hawkins Construction also confirms the appointment of Steve Ritchie as Auckland Regional Operations Manager. Following many years with Hawkins as a Project Manager and then Construction Manager, Steve was briefly appointed as Regional Construction Manager in September 2011, prior to temporarily moving to Victoria to be part of the Construction Management team for the Ararat prison.
Other members of the Auckland regional leadership team include:
Mark Katterns Project Director
Clive Smith New Business Manager
Jonathan McKenzie Regional Commercial Manager
Andrew Houghton Interiors Manager
AJ Staples Regional HSE Manager
“I have total confidence in the collective calibre and capability of this team to drive our Auckland regional operations to an exciting future under Gary’s leadership. They are all true Hawkins leaders who will work closely with our business partners and associates to deliver great outcomes for all our customers,” says Dan.
