RCP has announced a series of changes to its Executive Leadership Team and Governance Board, effective from 1 April 2022.
Following 25 years of leadership, RCP founding principal Waren Warfield has stepped aside as an Executive Director and RCP Board member. Waren will continue to work in a non-Executive capacity as a dedicated Project Director and an active mentor for RCP’s emerging young professionals.
Nick Beale, who joined Waren shortly after the business was established in 1995, is RCP’s new Board Chair. He vacates the co-Managing Director position he’s held jointly with Jeremy Hay for the past 10 years but continues to provide strategic project governance advice for several national clients.
Jeremy Hay, who now leads RCP as the sole Managing Director, has reflected on the contribution of both men. “Nick and Waren have been absolute stalwarts and tremendous figureheads within RCP, and throughout the broader construction and property sector, for a very long time. Our cities’ skylines and communities are better off because of their leadership and expertise; they have helped to deliver many challenging projects of national significance that we value every day, from the Sky Tower and numerous Christchurch rebuild anchor projects, to myriad sports stadiums, office developments and hospitals.
“We’re extremely indebted to Waren and Nick for their dedication and entrepreneurship in growing our business, and their imprint on RCP’s DNA will be carried well into the future. I’m privileged to have worked closely with them for most of my professional life and I count them as great friends. I’m also pleased that they’re continuing to contribute to RCP’s story, albeit in different roles,” says Jeremy.
