September 1 will signal the beginning of a new era for the RMBF as chief executive Pieter Burghout starts his tenure as new BRANZ CEO.
As reiterated in this issue by Federation Board chairman Mike Fox and president Brent Mettrick, Pieter has left an indelible mark on the organisation both as a professional and as a person.

His dedication, leadership, energy and enthusiasm marked him as a stand-out CEO, and one whose shoes will be hard to fill.

Also in this issue we reflect on immediate past president Ashley Hartley’s building industry career and his well deserved RMBF National Life
