BCITO Appoints New Chief Executive
The Building and Construction Industry Training Organisation (BCITO) has appointed Warwick Quinn as its new chief executive.
Mr Quinn is a former chief executive of the Motor Traders Association (MTA) and was the chief executive of Registered Master Builders Association for seven years. He is well-known and respected in the building and construction industry.
BCITO is the largest provider of construction trade apprenticeships in New Zealand. It is dedicated to leading the construction industry to create the best skilled workforce possible.
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 is to retire after nearly ten years of service to BCITO. Mr King says BCITO was fortunate to have had such a talented industry leader as Ruma.
“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.”
Mr Quinn says he is looking forward to building on the success of the industry training organisation.
“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.”
Mr Quinn will take up the role in June 2016.
