New Manager for Steel Industry Body

November 2016

Steel Construction New Zealand has appointed Darren O’Riley as its new Manager.

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. He has also just ended his time on the board of industry organisation the Window
Association NZ where he served for 12 years, seven as Chairman.

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