The New Zealand Green Building Council has appointed Joanne Duggan to the newly created director of marketing and partnerships role, effective June 2017.
Ms Duggan has been architectural and specifier market manager at Resene Paints for the past 10 years, and has a background in architectural design.
NZGBC chief executive Andrew Eagles said he was pleased to appoint someone of Ms Duggan’s calibre.
“Jo is well respected in the property and construction industry and will bring a fresh perspective to NZGBC,” he said. “It is tremendous to have her on board as we launch three new tools for the sector this year.”
Ms Duggan said her passion for sustainability had led her to Resene and now she was looking forward to working at the industry level.
“The launch of new residential and commercial buildings services provides an exceptionally exciting time to join the NZGBC,” she said. “I believe we will see a surge in the demand and awareness of the need for more quality and resilience in our built environment.”
