Steel Construction New Zealand (SCNZ) has appointed Darren O’Riley as its new manager, based in the organisation’s Auckland office.

Darren’s knowledge and expertise are a strong fit for SCNZ as the organisation moves forward. He has 28 years of sales and marketing, and business development experience, gained largely in the building and construction industry.

He joins SCNZ from Fletcher Aluminium, a division of Fletcher Building, where he was for 16 years. Prior to that, Darren held positions at BHP New Zealand Steel, Solid Energy, Marley NZ and Plyco Doors. 

O’Riley says, “I’m delighted to be joining such a progressive industry. In the last decade New Zealand’s structural steel sector has invested significantly in people, equipment and technology to boost capacity, quality and efficiency. It has proactively introduced Steel Fabricator Certification, an industry-led quality initiative to set itself apart from offshore suppliers.”

“The present climate presents both challenges and opportunities. I’m looking forward to supporting the industry on the next phase of its journey as it continues to grow and develop.”

O’Riley replaces Alistair Fussell, who is stepping down from the role after 11 years. Fussell plans to establish a structural engineering consultancy and will continue his association with SCNZ on a contract basis.
