EGM appointed for Hawkins Construction

Hawkins Construction, New Zealand’s largest privately owned construction business, has appointed internal candidate Gary Walker as Executive General Manager. His appointment follows an extensive search, in New Zealand and overseas, by a leading recruitment specialist.

Gary joined Hawkins in 2009 and became Auckland Regional Manager two years ago. With 30 years industry experience, Gary has worked in a wide range of senior construction and design-related management roles in East Africa, the UK, New Zealand and Australia.

Hawkins Group CEO, Geoff Hunt, says that Gary’s strong project delivery and people leadership skills have evolved through working in these diverse countries across project management, development, preconstruction and regional management.

“His broad picture thinking allows him to explore project delivery in a modern way combining the tried and tested with constantly evolving technological advances to improve business and construction productivity and efficiency,” says Hunt.

Gary is passionate about the continuing growth and success of Hawkins. “I think our strength at Hawkins is our people, and the things our people do to go the extra mile to make our clients’ experience better. That passion and thirst for success is what drives our project teams.

“My leadership style is very open and based on collaboration and transparency. A total team approach gets better results than the sum of the individuals,” says Walker.

Hawkins Group
Hawkins has evolved over almost 70 years to become a diversified enterprise providing project delivery services across a broad range of markets. Many of our projects feature prominently in the New Zealand urban and rural landscape.
