Both Lesley and Stephen come to BRANZ with substantial experience in the management and governance of service oriented organisations.
“BRANZ is fortunate to have secured two Directors with the breadth of experience and knowledge that both Lesley and Stephen possess. The strategic, financial, and relationship management skills they bring to the Board will support the continued performance growth of BRANZ”, says Helen.
“For BRANZ to consistently transform research into accessible, actionable knowledge, we need to attract robust Governance skills, informed by a knowledge of customer focused delivery. BRANZ consistently partners with researchers, government and industry to tackle the challenge of building better homes, towns and cities for New Zealand. Lesley and Stephen will provide enormous insight and experience to this task.”
