Chelydra Percy, Chief Executive of BRANZ to present at CoLab 2018

CoLab 2018 presenter Chsyldra Percy, CE BRANZ

Chelydra Percy launched the Industry Transformation Agenda (ITA) with a group of industry leaders in August 2017. She will be updating us on the ITA at CoLab 2018.

She and her colleagues are driven by the need for New Zealand’s building and construction sector to tackle system-wide change and address accelerating societal and industry challenges.

The Industry Transformation Agenda (ITA) is both a call to action and a long-term commitment. It looks beyond the seen horizon of business disruption and global change in the building and construction sector. It does not seek to offer quick fixes to immediate issues but is ambitious for the sector in New Zealand and it can transform to better deliver.

Chelydra Percy took up the role of Chief Executive of BRANZ in 2013. This followed her working in leadership roles within science, innovation and commercial organisations including Callaghan Innovation, Scion ( New Zealand Forest Research Institute), ESITO and Telecom.

She is graduate of Victoria University, a Companion of the Engineering NZ (previously IPENZ) and Vice-Chair of the International Council for Research and Innovation in Building and Construction (CIB).

CoLab is the anticipated annual conference of PrefabNZ, its THE prefab and offsite event at the heart of innovative construction #CoLab2018, 7 - 9 March, Auckland. More information on session leaders, programme, site visits and registration click here.
