Alex Cutler

New Zealand Green Building Council chief executive Alex Cutler has announced her resignation, and will leave the organisation later this year.

Ms Cutler has been in the role for close to six years, and will continue during the recruitment and training process to allow for a smooth transition.

NZGBC board chair Mary-Jane Daly praised Ms Cutler’s leadership of the organisation.

“She has brought new tools such as Homestar and NABERSNZ to the market, diversified NZGBC’s income streams and grown the business,” Ms Daly said.

“In that time she has also served as chair of the Construction Industry Council for two years, sat on the Building Advisory Panel to government and represented NZGBC at the World Green Building Council.”

Ms Cutler said she that her experience at NZGBC had been an “amazing” experience.

“I have loved the role and have been privileged to work with many talented people, both in the NZGBC team and across our membership base,” she said. “Working with members to embed sustainability into their business, be that at a strategic level or through a project-based approach, has been both challenging and hugely rewarding. But it’s time for me to move on to new challenges, and also spend more time with my family.”
