Infrastructure New Zealand (formerly New Zealand Council for Infrastructure Development) appointed three new directors to its board earlier this month. They are Natalie McClew, a partner at PwC; Rhys Clark, a Commercial Director at Tonkin + Taylor; and Fraser Wyllie, Managing Director of McConnell Dowell’s New Zealand and Pacific business.
Natalie offers a broad range of expertise with a focus on infrastructure and complex situations. With more than 15 years’ of corporate finance, banking and advisory experience, Natalie has a deep understanding of the challenges facing New Zealand’s infrastructure sector, particularly on pathfinder transactions. Natalie also sits on several project advisory boards and is a founding member of the Women in Infrastructure NZ Advisory Board.
Rhys Clark, Commercial Director at Tonkin + Taylor, brings more than 15 years’ of CFO-level experience in a career spanning the banking, funds management, insurance, infrastructure and telecommunications industries. He is experienced in leadership of all key finance disciplines and is well-versed in developing and maintaining working relationships at the Board level.
Fraser Wyllie has had a distinguished career in the New Zealand engineering and construction sector. He joins the Board from McConnell Dowell where he’s Managing Director of their New Zealand and Pacific business. With more than 30 years’ experience in the construction industry in New Zealand and overseas, Fraser has broad experience in infrastructure construction and a strong history of overseeing both quality project execution and sustained commercial growth.
Infrastructure New Zealand Chair, Margaret Devlin, welcomed the new members and also thanked Ian Purdy, Phil Gurnsey and Grant Hodges who retire from the Board this week after more than five years each of dedicated service.
