Registered Master Builders Appoints new Chief Executive

Registered Master Builders Appoints new Chief Executive

The Boards of the Registered Master Builders Association (RMBA) and Master Build Services Ltd (MBS) are pleased to announce the appointment of David Kelly as their new Chief Executive.

RMBA Chairman Anthony Leighs said that he’s thrilled that the organisations have secured such a high calibre leader in David particularly with his exceptional level of understanding of the construction industry.

“We are really excited about David’s appointment. The depth of industry experience he will bring to enhance the delivery of services to our members and the wider industry is second to none,” says Mr Leighs

“RMBA is at a milestone time in its history and we recognise that David’s strong leadership qualities, industry knowledge along with valuable networks and relationships, will strengthen Registered Master Builders industry leadership position.”

David has spent the last seven years with the Ministry of Business Employment and Innovation (MBIE formerly DBH) as its Director Canterbury Recovery Programme and, prior to this, the Deputy Chief Executive Building Quality. Both of these roles have included developing and establishing programmes of work vital to the industry and requiring large degrees of sector engagement for successful delivery. His previous experience is in Local Government.

“I am excited and privileged to be taking up the role of Chief Executive with Registered Master Builders and Master Build Services,” David says.

“Registered Master Builders have a long and proud history supporting the construction industry. We have worked closely over a number of years on key issues and opportunities for the sector and I have always found them to be thoroughly professional and forward looking.”

“I look forward to building on the strong foundations that are already in place to support the members in continuing to provide excellent services to their clients, and to promote a professional and productive construction sector.”

David will start his role at RMBA in early November.
