Citycare Group has announced the resignation of Chief Executive Officer Onno Mulder.
Mulder has been with Citycare for twenty years after joining as Divisional Manager Civil in 2000. In 2005 he was appointed to the Group CEO role. During his time with the business, annual financial turnover increased from $40M with a focus on a single city (Christchurch) to $300M with a diverse range of operations across New Zealand.
The company has delivered a solid after tax profit for the FY 2019/20 and has achieved all non-financial KPIs. This result has ensured that Mulder leaves the company in a sound financial position and well positioned for future growth.
Board Chair, Bryan Jamison, said that Mulder had provided strong leadership and delivered business growth during his time as Chief Executive with the company maturing into a leading national provider of construction and maintenance services across New Zealand's built environment
“Onno has also focussed on leadership and culture within the workplace and this week the business received a highly commended in the 2020 New Zealand Diversity Awards which is a reflection of Onno’s commitment to building a better workplace for his team,” said Jamison.
Mulder says it has been a privilege to lead Citycare for the past fifteen years.
“I have led the organisation during a number of particularly turbulent times in New Zealand’s history when our services and support for our communities have never been needed more. During the 2010/11 Canterbury earthquakes and the current Covid pandemic it has been Citycare teams that have kept the towns and cities that we work in going. I have had a great team around me and I thank them for their support.
“I am leaving at a time when Citycare has experienced strong revenue and profit growth across all regions. It feels like the right time for new leadership to take the business through its next growth phase,” said Mulder.
Mulder will leave Citycare on 16 October.
