Xigo are delighted and excited to announce the appointment of Andrew McDonald and John Pengelly as two new Directors to the Business. These appointments not only recognise the considerable contributions Andrew and John have made to Xigo’s business, but also signal exciting times in Xigo’s growth and succession planning.
We take this opportunity to congratulate Andrew and John and welcome them to the board.
Andrew joined the Xigo team in January 2013. He has a strong background in project management procedures and processes and is experienced across a range of industries including design, construction and IT. He has also delivered projects using best practice methodologies for a range of multinational and local clients as well as a strong theoretical grounding from his PMP qualification. He has the ability to build and develop relationships with all involved parties and possesses excellent communication skills. Notable major projects during his time at Xigo include Northwest Shopping Centre, Pullman Auckland Airport Hotel, Datacom new head office and the Auckland City Mission – HomeGround project.
John’s Xigo career started a month after Andrew in February 2013, initially as Christchurch and Wellington Manager focusing on Christchurch post the earthquakes. A construction professional with over 25 years’ experience in the New Zealand and the United Kingdom. John has hands on experience in the delivery of large scale design build projects. He is strong in the project definition and strategic phases linking Client’s business metrics to project outcomes. John recognises the big picture on complex projects, engages with all stake holders to map out drivers, dependencies and risks to provide value-based solutions that are “best for project”. Some of John’s notable projects include Xero’s head office, the redevelopment of the entry and ground floor of the Beehive, and currently the New Zealand Defence Force HQ and the redevelopment of Wakefield Hospital Campus.
We look forward to Andrew and John bringing another dimension to the Xigo board and adding to our strength and depth.
