Chief Executive

  • Unique opportunity to drive growth and trust.
  • Consolidate and expand off a strong establishment phase.


Established in 2020, Halo Guarantees Limited (HGL) is a wholly owned subsidiary of New Zealand Certified Builders (NZCB). HGL has a high level of responsibility in terms of setting standards, building risk management capability, and ensuring integration with NZCB strategies and team.

HGL’s initial set-up is now complete, and it has a new guarantee product in the market (the Halo 10-year Residential Guarantee) available exclusively to NZCB members and their customers.

The next step is to appoint a Chief Executive to further embed HGL’s operational processes and disciplines, and then to drive its growth. This also entails building a brand, ensuring effective product design, maintaining profitability, and managing long-term risk.

Co-located in NZCB’s office in Tauranga, reporting to the HGL Board and leading a small team, the role requires a credible senior leader with experience leading and managing a commercial business in a regulated environment – ideally seeing it through from post-start-up to maturity. Although an insurance, risk and/or financial services background is not essential, experience or knowledge in any of these areas would be beneficial.

The new Chief Executive needs to have experience of both working with a Board to provide strategic direction and leading the day-to-day operations of a customer-centric organisation – embedding and overseeing business processes and controls and, when the time is right, growing the business and driving value creation in a commercial, profitable and sustainable manner. This will necessitate building strong relationships and networks and collaborative business relationships with NZCB members, homeowners and the wider sector.
