Mark Gutry

After joining Watts & Hughes in 2002 as a project manager in Auckland, I moved into the role of General Manager of Watts & Hughes Construction Waikato/Bay of Plenty. With the 2010 amalgamation of the two offices I am now the Construction Director of the Waikato, Bay of Plenty, Gisborne and Wellington regions.

As the Construction Director, my role includes: managing the day-to-day operations; procuring and securing new work; ensuring existing projects are built on time and to our high standards of quality; and maintaining great relationships with existing clients.

I started in the building and construction industries many years ago, working with only two national construction companies over twenty years—as a trade qualified builder with one and then in construction management with the other. After gaining overseas experience in building and construction, I started working with Watts & Hughes in 2002.

Because of my extensive background in the construction industry, I enjoy being a motivated and hands-on director. I’m motivated and challenged by the talented staff at Watts & Hughes and work to provide on-going opportunities for them.

I grew up in the Waikato/Bay of Plenty area and love working with local clients as well as catering for our growing client-base in the lower North Island.

Every job is different— every day is different!
