Meet our new Parks, Play and Open Spaces Programme Manager
We are excited to announce the appointment of our new Parks, Play and Open Spaces Programme Manager; Garrett Blair.
Garrett started his career at Gisborne District Council and worked in a number of different roles there before joining Fulton Hogan in 2018.
On his appointment, Garrett says "Prior to my arrival at GDC, I was unaware that the parks and open spaces industry was a thing. It was truly an eye opener to understand the mechanics around local government and the role they play. I've managed to get various levels of experience working in local government in such a short timeframe and have been exposed to some great people in the industry who I will no doubt cross paths with again. "
"With the role I am excited to get back into the industry - I have spent some time away but always felt that I would end up back in it - so to jump on board with Recreation Aotearoa is an opportunity that I couldn't pass up. There is a lot of work happening in this space, and in particular the play area, so I can't wait to get my feet under the desk and work with all of our stakeholders on the issues they face. "
Garrett will be starting his new role on Monday 21st June.
