Bruce Emson Joins Corbel Construction as Division Manager

Bruce Emson Joins Corbel Construction as Division Manager, Public Sector

Christchurch-based construction company Corbel Construction (Corbel) today announced that it has appointed Bruce Emson to a newly created role of Division Manager, Public Sector. Bruce joins Corbel from the Earthquake Commission (EQC) where he was Chief Operating Officer based in Christchurch.

At Corbel, Bruce will help the company continue to grow its presence in public sector construction, primarily in Canterbury but with a wider brief to assist with fulfilling Corbel’s strategic goal to have a national presence and become a $100million construction company within the next five years.

Corbel Construction’s Managing Director Craig Jones said, “Bruce brings extensive experience to the role gained from a 35 plus year business career working at the chief operating and chief executive level around the world and most recently here in Christchurch. This experience will undoubtedly add value to Corbel and help accelerate our growth plan for Canterbury and beyond.”

Prior to his most recent role at EQC, Bruce was Chief Executive of Infratil subsidiary and public transport operator NZ Bus. NZ Bus runs the public transport buses in Auckland, Wellington and Whangarei, and ferry public transport in Auckland. This followed a career with Shell where he held senior roles in Australia, Singapore, Hungary and New Zealand culminating as General Manager, Distribution Oceania and Shell Logistics Australia.

Having contributed to the residential recovery of Christchurch with EQC, this role provides the opportunity to be part of the wider city’s reconstruction and particularly its public sector infrastructure.

Bruce Emson said, “This is a new chapter in that my role at EQC was to establish the systems, structures and people to undertake the reconstruction of Christchurch’s residential sector, which will be completed later this year. At Corbel, I have the opportunity to grow the scale and expertise of an exciting, mid-size enterprise with ambitious plans and be part of rebuilding the city by assisting government and local body organisations to deliver the challenging programmes they are facing.”

“Corbel has an impressive track record as a local construction company. It has experienced strong growth over the past six years and has the potential to position itself for the future taking advantage of the opportunities and expertise gained through the Canterbury earthquake rebuild.”

Craig Jones said, “Bruce is a key appointment for the company as he has the ability to think not only at an operational level but also at a strategic level that takes into account longer term outcomes required by our clients. We believe delivering professional construction services comes down to two fundamentals; best people and best practice. These fundamentals provide the business with a competitive advantage that will facilitate its growth, and which we summarise as Best People, Best Practice, and Best Outcome company mantra.”

About Corbel Construction
Established in 2000, Christchurch-based Corbel Construction employs over 80 fulltime permanent staff across three divisions: Commercial Construction, Residential Building and Interiors fit out.
A private company, Corbel is owned and operated by its founders Craig Jones and Mark Wells.
The company has grown significantly, averaging 25% growth per annum over the past six years, with targeted annual revenue of $40 million for this financial year.

Corbel therefore has the skills, experience and resources to allow it to undertake a number of projects concurrently.
