CCANZ appoints new chairman


The Cement and Concrete Association of New Zealand (CCANZ) has appointed Andrew Moss as chairman of the Board. Andrew, a CCANZ Board member for two years and current marketing manager of Golden Bay Cement, has more than 12 years’ experience in the industry, working in a variety of business and marketing development, logistical and customer management roles since joining the company in 1991. 

Mr Moss says he is thrilled to be appointed chairman and excited about the opportunities and challenges he will face in his new role. “This is a great industry and I’m really looking forward to working more closely with the CCANZ team to help grow the profile of the sector and also strengthen the competitive positioning of concrete,” Mr Moss says. 

“The regulatory changes in the industry at the moment provide the perfect platform for CCANZ to continue to be the leading industry voice.” CCANZ chief executive Patrick McGuire also acknowledged the commitment and contribution former chairman, Rex Williams (who will remain on the Board as deputy chairman), made during his tenure. 

“Rex has been a great leader and we have valued his work over the past year,” Mr McGuire says. “The Board is now looking for a generational change, and believes that Andrew is the best person capable of achieving this and moving the association forward.”
