Fletcher Building announces two executive appointments

CEO Bruce McEwen will move to newly created CEO, Digital Foundations role, while Teresa Rendo has been appointed as CEO, Distribution, replacing McEwen. 

Wed, 15 Sep 2021

In his new role, McEwen will lead a programme of work currently underway to accelerate the improvement of Fletcher Building Group’s digital foundations.

Fletcher Building chief executive Ross Taylor says: “The role of CEO Digital Foundations is critical as we accelerate the transition of our businesses.  This key strategic initiative will underpin our ability to meet our customers’ current and future needs and allow us to focus on the areas that they value most.

“With our operating businesses continuing to increase their activities across ecommerce, digitisation, automation and data analytics, the need to get our base systems and data capabilities positioned to support this growth and activity has become increasingly important.

“Bruce is a highly experienced leader with a strong understanding of the technology and data transformation we need to make, combined with a proven ability to influence and lead change.”

Meanwhile, Rendo joins Fletcher Building in NZ after holding senior leadership roles within the Woolworths Group in Australia, most recently at Big W. 

Taylor says: “This is an important time for our distribution businesses (which includes Placemakers and Mico) as we continue to drive its operating tempo and business model to exceed the changing expectations of our customers. Teresa’s expertise and understanding of global trends and best practice will ensure we accelerate this journey.  She is a proven team and customer-first leader with a demonstrated track-record of delivering results.  In addition, she brings to the role a highly valuable skill set, including a focus on what matters most to customers and how to effectively leverage ecommerce, data and supply chains to maximum effect.”
