Chris Goldsbury

Director & General Manager | Kaiwhakahaere Matua

Alongside Nigel, Chris is responsible for building the Aoraki team of project managers, site managers, quantity surveyors, cadets, and administration. His role includes business development, securing forward work, overseeing delivery, developing and growing the brand and fostering productive positive relationships.

Chris’s background started in site management, construction project management and as a company General Manager and business unit leader. Chris’s prior business unit in Wellington had circa $80M revenue annually with 45 direct employed staff. During that time, that business in Wellington transformed and added some excellent capability through new staff, clients and projects. Under Chris’s leadership, the profile in the Wellington market was heightened, with some landmark projects including the new Rydges Hotel at Wellington Airport.

During his time as a construction project manager, Chris delivered several significant commercial projects during a 12-year tenure with Fletcher Construction including the $60M Taranaki Base Hospital. That time with Fletcher was a valuable training ground for Chris – not only from a technical construction perspective, but also teaching the importance of whanau, tikanga, mana whenua, and strong relationships based on trust and mutual respect.
