Chief Executive Officer, Citycare Group
Bringing over 30 years' operational and management experience within the engineering and contracting industries to bear, Onno’s drive, ambition and leadership have long been the foundational cornerstone of Citycare’s success. He first joined Citycare in 2000 as Divisional Manager - Civil Engineering, before rapid promotion through the ranks, to Northern Regional Manager in 2002 and Southern Regional Manager in 2004, making him an ideal candidate for his appointment as Chief Executive Officer in late 2005. Since then, Onno has focused on driving operational excellence, strong financial growth and the strategic development of a business that now has a balanced national delivery model and has matured into a leading national provider of construction, maintenance and management services across New Zealand's built environment.
Executive General Manager, Citycare Civil
The newest member of the Citycare Executive team, joining in April 2019, Michael joined the business after successfully leading the on-time/on-budget delivery of the new $450m Central Plains Water Enhancement scheme, which now delivers irrigation water to 46,000 hectares of Selwyn District land. His experience at the helm of one of New Zealand's largest privately owned water infrastructure networks is further complemented by extensive business management and other major capital investment and project/programme development and delivery experience across the utilities and resources sectors. A proud Cantabrian, Michael is keen to reinvigorate the Citycare Civil name and brand reputation locally and to support Citycare’s growing national footprint.
Executive General Manager, Citycare Property
A qualified engineer, Peter has over 25 years' operational and management experience in the construction and infrastructure maintenance industries. Joining City Care in 2002 as a Contract Manager, his rapid promotion through the business saw him move into an EGM role when Citycare established a national facilities management division during its 2010 company restructure. Success in that role now sees Peter heading up the new Citycare Property business, which incorporates his former portfolio with the Open Spaces Maintenance business, as well as building in a vertical construction and PMO offering to clients.
Executive General Manager, Citycare Water
A qualified engineer, with over 30 years' experience in the construction and infrastructure maintenance industries, Tim joined City Care in early 2006 as General Manager - Northern Region. The 2010 restructure saw the formation of a national maintenance division and Tim was an ideal candidate to take on executive ownership of that division. His strong leadership skills and flair for operational management saw consistent success in this area of the business and the cornerstone of this success was a Three Waters maintenance business that had quietly built itself to owning over 60% of the Local Authority contract base for Three Waters maintenance. So firming Tim’s portfolio up to concentrate specifically on Citycare’s opportunities in Three Waters maintenance delivery was an obvious and exciting next step.
