Naylor Love Enterprises - CEO Appointment Announcement


Naylor Love Enterprises Chair Jackie Lloyd is pleased to announce the appointment of Bruno Goedeke as Chief Executive Officer. Mr Goedeke replaces Rick Herd, who retires at the end of March 2024.

Ms Lloyd said Bruno’s extensive experience in the construction sector, including most recently as Naylor Love’s Regional Director for Auckland and Waikato/Bay of Plenty, position him well to lead the next phase of Naylor Love’s 114-year history.

“The Board is delighted to appoint Bruno from a strong pool of local and international candidates. He brings a deep understanding of vertical construction and the New Zealand market and is well known for his people-centric leadership style and commitment to Naylor Love’s culture.”

“I have certainly got some big boots to fill,” acknowledges Mr Goedeke, “but this is a fantastic opportunity to build on strong foundations and steer Naylor Love into the future.”

Ms Lloyd also paid tribute to Rick Herd for his leadership of the Company over the last 11 years.

“Rick has led an extraordinary period of growth for Naylor Love and leaves the organisation in very good shape. His contributions, not only to Naylor Love but in championing health and safety and industry reforms in the construction sector, have been significant.”

Mr Herd is confident that he is leaving the Company in good hands.

“It has been hard work, a privilege, and a joy to work with an exceptional team. I hand the baton to Bruno with a sense of confidence and optimism for the future of Naylor Love.”
