CHIEF EXECUTIVE

Grant Florence

My responsibilities include leading the delivery of the organisation's Strategic and Management Plans, Governance and operational engagement with the NZCB Board, and liaison with other strategic stakeholders. Having worked in the building industry in various leadership positions for a number of years, I am passionate about the opportunities that NZCB and its members can deliver to the communities of New Zealand.

OPERATIONS MANAGER

Jason McClintock

In today\'s over regulated building environment, I find builders sometimes need a helping hand to get through it all. I am fortunate to work alongside a team of devoted individuals who support me in delivering builder education, new membership processing and supporting members when things go pear shaped on site with clients, councils and subcontractors. Coming from a building background allows me to empathise with what keeps builders up at night, so if it’s a business template or a sounding board to what’s happening on the building site, I’ll dig out a resolve or point you in the direction of help.

MEMBERSHIP SERVICES MANAGER

Eve Cooper

I deal with all aspects of benefits for our members, from sourcing new and exciting deals and discounts to ensuring a rewarding and knowledgeable annual conference is delivered. I also develop our members\' websites and help with any computer or marketing questions our members might have.

FINANCE MANAGER

Victor Storey

I have over 15 years applied accounting experience and oversee the NZCB Finance department. I have detailed experience in all aspects of month end accounts, taxation and year end audit processes and am responsible for overseeing all aspects of the monthly accounts for both the NZCB National Support Office and Regional Associations.

EXECUTIVE ASSISTANT TO CHIEF EXECUTIVE

Alicia Karena

I assist the Chief Executive, and also make travel and accommodation arrangements for other NZCB staff, some of whom travel extensively in order to provide training and other assistance to our members, nationwide. I enjoy working in a member organisation, where all NSO staff are united in their dedication to providing services and assistance to our wonderful NZCB members.

CUSTOMER LIAISON COORDINATOR

Jenni Hurn

A building project can have many highs and lows, my role is to support the relationship between members and their clients so it remains constant with NZCB’s brand promise of “peace of mind”. I can assist if the communication between the client and builder breaks down or if facilitation to get the building contract back on track is required. In the rare occurrence members need help with conflict between sub-contractors and the supply chain, I can help with that as well.
