BCITO has appointed former Masters Builders CEO Warwick Quinn (above) as its new Chief Executive.

Formerly CEO of the Registered Master Builders Association 2008-2014, and more recently CEO of the Motor Traders Association (MTA), he is well-known and respected in the building and construction industry.

Mike King, Chairman of BCITO, says the Board is confident that the organisation will continue to thrive under Mr Quinn’s leadership: “We are thrilled to welcome Warwick back into the building environment, and look forward to the broad skillset and level of knowledge he will bring to the organisation.

“We believe he will be an excellent leader in not only our organisation, but the building and construction industry as a whole, particularly across education and to our apprentices.”

BCITO’s current Chief Executive, Ruma Karaitiana (left), is to retire after nearly a decade at the organisation and Mike King says BCITO was fortunate to have had such a talented leader: “We take our hats off to Ruma. We thank him for his leadership and dedication to BCITO and wish him all the best as he embarks on his new adventure.”

For his part, Warwick Quinn says: “Ruma is leaving BCITO in a fantastic position, and I’m confident that we will continue to serve the construction industry well in the future.

“The building and construction industry is one that I’m passionate about and I’m excited to work alongside both the leaders, apprentices and the next generation in this sector.”

The team at NZ Hardware Journal also wish Ruma well for his readiness to help and comment!
