As one of the founders of Watts & Hughes in 1984 and now as the Managing Director, it’s been a pleasure to grow this organisation with the help of those who have worked and continue to work with me. The company has grown into a successful organisation and continues to expand its expertise in all aspects of construction.
As the Managing Director I take responsibility for all aspects of the business. This includes: identifying, developing and implementing the business strategy; planning and directing Watts & Hughes’ goals (along with the executive team) including the financial and trading performance of the company, the quality of our business, the culture of the company and the legislative adherence of the organisation; and protecting and enhancing the values of the company and its reputation in the market including its employees, customers, suppliers, official bodies and its shareholders.
Prior to establishing Watts & Hughes I had the benefit of working with the following companies: Civil & Civic Construction (Wellington/Auckland), Wilkins & Davies Construction (Auckland), Rudolph & Sletton (California, USA) and Angus Construction (Auckland). All these companies helped with the basis of the foundation of the success of Watts & Hughes.
