Malcolm Fleming moving to new industry role after leading NZIOB for seven years


NZIOB Chief Executive Malcolm Fleming provided notice to the NZIOB Board this week that he is moving to a fellow construction sector membership association, New Zealand Certified Builders (NZCB), where he will take up the position of Chief Executive. Malcolm's last day at the NZIOB will be Friday, 6 May. 

Malcolm started with the NZIOB in March 2015. He has worked tirelessly throughout the subsequent seven years to elevate the NZIOB's profile and effectiveness as an industry stakeholder and strengthen the NZIOB membership proposition. Working in partnership with successive NZIOB Councils/Boards, Malcolm has delivered a catalogue of accomplishments for the Institute. Recent examples include developing and expanding the Building Legends training workshops, the new NZIOB National Student Awards (launched in February), and the transition of BIM Acceleration Committee workstreams to the NZIOB in late 2021. Running in parallel has been the growth in profile of the NZIOB and the status of its senior members within the sector, reflected in NZIOB's recent success in having all three of its nominees accepted to the NZS 3910 Standards Review Committee. A flow-on effect of the raised profile of the NZIOB and its members has been strong membership growth, most notably across the last two years. 

"My seven years as the NZIOB's Chief Executive have been a career highlight," said Malcolm. "I have enjoyed the role enormously and am very proud of what I have achieved with the NZIOB, a key contributor to that being supportive NZIOB governance groups across my tenure, along with the development of a high-performing and close-knit National Office team. It is not without sadness that I am now moving on, though as an NZIOB member, I will retain a strong connection to the Institute, an organisation that I care a great deal about." 

NZIOB National Board Chair John Hemi says, "The NZIOB board and staff are disappointed to lose Malcolm and acknowledge the huge effort and commitment he has shown to the Institute over the last seven years. The Institute is recognised as an essential resource to members and industry, largely due to Malcolm's effectiveness over his tenure. On behalf of the board and the NZIOB membership, I would like to thank him for his dedicated service and wish him well in his future role."
