Reporting directly to the CEO, the appointee will play a critical role in leading the safe, high performance delivery of electrical distribution capital and maintenance services for Aurora and a number of other South Island based customers.  Leading a business with 165 staff through 5 direct reports, key areas of focus will be safety and risk management as well as positive leadership and development of the people in the team to drive new standards of performance and customer value.  Closely aligned responsibilities include financial performance management, customer relationship management and statutory compliance.  The appointee will also contribute strategically to the wider business as a member of the Executive Leadership Team and have direct, regular involvement with the Board of Directors.
