Ōtākaro Limited Chief Executive Albert Brantley has advised the Crown company’s Board of Directors that he will be stepping down from his position around June 2018 to focus on other national and overseas activities.
Chairman Ross Butler said that he was disappointed to lose such a strong leader.
“Albert was our inaugural Chief Executive on our formation in April 2016. He was selected based on his experience in the development and management of large construction projects. The excellent progress of the Christchurch Convention Centre and the completion of the Canterbury Earthquake National Memorial, Rauora Park, Victoria Square and other projects is testimony to his skills.”
“We are also fortunate that Albert has put together an excellent team of professionals, so that we can maintain momentum on the projects as well as the divestment of Crown land.”
Mr Brantley says he will leave Ōtākaro in a good position.
“With construction of the Convention Centre well underway and many of the horizontal projects set for completion before the end of the year, now is a good time to hand over the reins.”
Mr Butler says the Board and staff are grateful for Albert’s leadership, passion and commitment.
“He is a man of integrity, a person who has built an entity from scratch with such a fantastic culture. We wish him continued success.”
