A message from our president Ian Fraser
Reflecting on the last year, I’m proud of the central role ACE New Zealand has taken in generating the forums needed for our industry to remain connected throughout the COVID lockdowns and recovery.
The forums enabled our members to share their challenges and strategies and to hear from others which assisted us all to navigate the significant uncertainty and to provide clear messages to the Government as they considered how best to support the economy.
The year also saw us transition from the leadership of Paul Evans as our Chief Executive to Helen Davidson. I’m excited to be working with Helen and for ACE New Zealand to capitalise on her deep knowledge and passion for our sector.
Throughout the year, the ACE New Zealand team also continued to deliver outstanding service to our members, through our thought leadership on infrastructure investment and skills shortages, to negotiating better contractual conditions with some of our key Government clients, and relevant and engaging training webinars.
While our member organisations rise to the immediate challenges of buoyant market conditions, we must keep an eye on the long game ensuring we have a pipeline of diverse candidates to employ and that we continue to transform our service offerings to be relevant in an increasingly carbon accountable and automated future.
