New Chief Executive Officer

7 February 2005

New Chief Executive Officer for Building Officials Institute of New Zealand (BOINZ)

On behalf of the Board of the Building Officials Institute, the President, Richard Toner, is pleased to announce that Len Clapham has been appointed Chief Executive Officer of the Institute.

Mr Clapham arrives from the New Zealand Water and Waste Association where he has been Chief Executive for the past eight years. In that time he has worked extensively with local and central government in the water industry, achieving immense success and substantial growth.

Mr Toner says Mr Clapham is a recognised entrepreneurial leader with experience in the not-for-profit sector as well as in private company ownership, management and directorship. “Len is a results-oriented leader whose enthusiasm, flair and sound business acumen will be advantageous to BOINZ as it develops and grows at this important time for the building sector of New Zealand.”

Mr Clapham is a fellow of Associations New Zealand Inc and has been honoured by the Government for services to the business community as well as for services in promoting the standing of water professionals amongst the community, and with many public, commercial and political agencies.

The Board is looking forward to implementation of its strategic growth and future direction plans with Mr Clapham and the team at BOINZ.

BOINZ is a non-profit voluntary organisation. Established as the NZ Institute of Building Inspectors in 1967, the Institute amalgamated with the NZ Institute of Plumbing and Drainage Inspectors to form BOINZ in 1998 and has a membership of 750.

The Institute strives to raise the status and advance the interests of the profession of building controls. It encourages members to develop a better understanding of the responsibilities and duties imposed by Acts and regulations. To achieve this, the Institute facilitates opportunities for the members to meet, correspond and interchange knowledge relevant to the science of building.

The Institute will review, promote, or lobby for legislation and standards which will provide safe and healthy buildings for our community.
