McConnell Dowell makes new appointment in NZ

McConnell Dowell has appointed Fraser Wyllie as the Managing Director of its New Zealand and Pacific Islands operations.

Mr Wyllie, who has more than 30 years of experience in the industry, was previously with Downer as Executive General Manager and has a track record for overseeing project execution and sustained commercial growth.

He takes over the role from Roger McRae, who has stepped down after more than 16 years in the job and 30 years with McConnell Dowell.

“We would like to thank Roger for all he’s done, and we look forward to maintaining an ongoing working relationship with him as he moves into the next phase of his career,” said McConnell Dowell Group Chief Executive Scott Cummins.

“I look forward to working directly with Fraser, whose leadership and people skills have been reflected in his successful track record.

“McConnell Dowell was founded in New Zealand in 1961, and remains an extremely important market for us.

“I’m confident Fraser will make a strong contribution in terms of successful project delivery, profitability and sustainable growth,” said Mr Cummins.

McConnell Dowell is currently undertaking several infrastructure projects in New Zealand and the Pacific Islands, including on roads, waste water treatment facilities, rails, tunnels and rebuilding Christchurch’s earthquake-hit infrastructure.

Mr Wyllie is expected to be in the role at the start of August 2017.
