Robin Jack, XLam’s co-founder, director, and retiring CEO, joined the XLam board’s world-wide hunt for his replacement.
Robin said they were focused on finding the right person with extensive experience in the prefabricated construction industry to join the team.
“I look forward to 14 March when I will proudly hand over the CEO duties to my appointed successor Gary Caulfield.
“Gary brings us a wealth of world class, innovative construction and exemplary leadership experience. He has successfully delivered major prefabricated construction projects in New Zealand and overseas, including involvement in finance, legal, design, and site management,” Robin said.
Robin’s strategic growth plans for XLam, and his personal plans, are now on track – and while he is stepping down he will retain a keen interest as a director on the XLam Board.
XLam’s Chairman, Martin Kriewaldt, has accepted Robin’s notice of retirement as CEO while welcoming his ongoing involvement as a shareholder and director on the board.
“Mr Jack is a successful entrepreneur with exceptional foresight,” Martin said.
“XLam started as a conversation involving Robin and his brother Ian over a coffee table in 2010.
“Robin Jack brought a wealth of experience to that coffee table as the long-standing managing director of New Zealand’s largest supplier of timber processing machinery,” Martin concluded.
Technical information, case studies, photos, and information outlining the benefits of using CLT for construction are detailed on the XLam website.
