McConnell Dowell has appointed Fraser Wyllie as its new Managing Director, New Zealand and Pacific Islands.

Mr. Wyllie will build on the foundations laid by his predecessor Roger McRae, when he commences his role with the company in early August.

Mr. Wyllie has more than 30 years’ experience in the industry, most recently working as Executive Manager Projects at Downer. He holds a Bachelor of Civil Engineering from the University of Auckland and a Master of Business Administration from Massey University.

McConnell Dowell Group Chief Executive Scott Cummins welcomed Mr. Wyllie as a valuable addition to the team.

“I look forward to working directly with Fraser, whose leadership and people skills have been reflected in his successful track record.” he said.

“McConnell Dowell was founded in New Zealand in 1961, and remains an extremely important market for us. I’m confident Fraser will make a strong contribution in terms of successful project delivery, profitability and sustainable growth.”

McConnell Dowell is currently undertaking numerous infrastructure projects in New Zealand and the Pacific Islands including works on roads, waste water treatment facilities, rail, tunnels and rebuilding Christchurch’s earthquake-hit infrastructure.

Mr. Cummins also recognised the outstanding service of outgoing Managing Director Roger McRae, who has decided to step down after more than 16 years in the job and 30 years with McConnell Dowell.

“We would like to thank Roger for all he’s done, and we look forward to maintaining an ongoing working relationship with him as he moves into the next phase of his career,” he said.
