Anne is Office Manager for Taranaki. She originally joined RCP in Christchurch as a Project Manager in 2013, later taking a couple of breaks for OEs. After her last overseas stint, Anne moved to Taranaki in 2018 – having successfully pitched the idea of establishing an RCP foothold in the region – and got underway with projects for national clients including Air New Zealand and ANZ. Crucially, it was this local presence that helped RCP to secure Project Maunga, Stage two of the Taranaki Hospital redevelopment.
Other significant local projects followed – Yarrow Stadium rebuild and Southern Cross Hospital redevelopment. Leading meaningful community projects like these are behind Anne’s drive to succeed.
Anne’s role has grown and evolved in line with the stellar growth of the Taranaki office. She brings a positive outlook to her work and is heavily solutions focused. She thrives on having a dynamic role with multiple challenges, and working with a wide range of experts to solve them. An engineering background helps her to comfortably deep dive into the technical aspects of projects, and speak an engineer’s language.
Anne earned a degree in Mechanical Engineering and worked for a short time in Sydney as a building services engineer before returning to New Zealand to complete a Master’s degree focused on Building Information Modelling, a new and emerging area of the industry. Today, Anne is working towards achieving chartered status with an engineering management focus.
When Anne isn’t in the office, she’s spending time with her young daughter, or pursuing the range of adventure sports on her doorstep, like mountain biking, surfing and snowboarding.
