SCIRT's Board is the board of directors for the Alliance. It is made up of executive managers from both owner and non-owner participant organisations. The Board provides direction to SCIRT's Management Team.
Chief Executive Officer, City Care Ltd, Chair of the SCIRT Board
Having personally been involved in the earthquake emergency response, and working over the last three years on restoring water and wastewater services and maintaining the roading network for the citizens of Christchurch, I am dedicated to seeing the reconstruction of the city through to completion and greatly value the opportunity to do so. As a fanatical citizen of Christchurch I want to do everything possible to rebuild our great city.
General Manager, McConnell Dowell Constructors Ltd.
McConnell Dowell has a proud history of working in the Canterbury region – a large number of our people live and work here. I feel for the people of Christchurch and in particular for those who have suffered so much from the earthquakes. I have a strong personal motivation to be part of a team that restores the quality of life for Christchurch people as quickly as possible.
Chief Operating Officer, Fulton Hogan
Fulton Hogan has been in the thick of the response work from those very first minutes following the September quake. Our locally based team has been working throughout the city doing “whatever it takes”, to ensure the safety of the people of Christchurch. I am deeply proud of our people and their continued commitment to the cause. Fulton Hogan through our late CEO Bill Perry was instrumental in forming the alliance and we remain firmly focused on playing our part. We are a Christchurch based organisation and as a member of the SCIRT Board and with responsibility for the Christchurch Rebuild response at Fulton Hogan, I am committed to seeing that we do whatever is required to bring Christchurch back to its former glory.
Together with our SCIRT partners, we will rebuild our city.
Chief Executive Officer, Downer NZ
It is very important for the people of the Canterbury community and New Zealand’s economy that we rebuild Christchurch as quickly and cost effectively as possible. This is the challenge presented to the Stronger Christchurch Infrastructure Rebuild Team and one that I am confident that it will deliver on. This is a unique opportunity that I am proud to be associated with that will demonstrate the strength and resilience of the New Zealand character to step up and collaborate when it matters most.
General Manager - Infrastructure, The Fletcher Construction Company Ltd.
Joining the Board part-way through the rebuild phase gives me an opportunity to bring fresh energy and vision to an already very successful board and management team. I am, like all New Zealanders, very much aware of the efforts and achievements of the SCIRT alliance and partners in recent years and am proud to now have an active involvement with an organisation which has already stamped a lasting legacy for the enhancement of Canterbury and the lives of Cantabrians.
Deputy Director Implementation, CCDU
The establishment of the SCIRT alliance to repair and rebuild the city’s horizontal illustrates the commitment by central and local government to ensure our return to a vibrant, well-functioning community. I have no doubt the alliance will deliver the high quality, resilient network the city needs to underpin our future economic and social development.
Regional Director Southern, NZTA
Walking out of the Square with thousands of others on February 22 2011 gave me an appreciation of how important resilient infrastructure is to the future of Greater Christchurch. The Transport Agency is proud to be part of the SCIRT alliance responsible for rebuilding the horizontal infrastructure on which the city depends. Our people are working closely with our alliance partners to deliver innovation and efficiencies as part of the rebuild. Working in such a strong, collaborative environment, I have total confidence that we are rebuilding a city that will be a better place for future generations.
General Manager, Infrastructure Rebuild - Council Facilities & Infrastructure Rebuild Group
Life for tens of thousands of Cantabrians changed dramatically after the events of September 2010 and February 2011. From my home in Dunedin at that time, my initial concerns were for the welfare of my mother and immediate family who lived in the east of the city. The sheer scale and complexity of the rebuild task were a compelling influence in my decision to permanently relocate to Christchurch in 2012 and devote my energy into the rebuild of the city with the Christchurch City Council and through my new role on the SCIRT board.
