Fletcher Building today announced the appointment of Construction Chief Executive, Michele Kernahan to a new role as head of its Building Products division.

Michele will move into the role effective early November. 

CEO Ross Taylor says a key focus of the new strategy for Fletcher Building is to grow its core operations in building products and Michele is ideally placed to lead that with significant experience in the sector, having previously held leadership roles at both Laminex Australia and Golden Bay Cement.

He says the Construction division is stronger as a result of her leadership."We remain focused on stabilising our Construction Division, and in particular, increasing our focus on lower-risk, more profitable sectors such as infrastructure and roading."

Peter Reidy, currently Chief Executive KiwiRail (pictured above), has been appointed as the new Chief Executive Construction.

He has a strong track record of leading infrastructure businesses, including in his current role at KiwiRail and previously as Chief Operating Officer Infrastructure Services with Downer Group in Australia.
