RCP Senior Appointments
- 2023 November
Independent Board Director
Lindsay Zwart joins the Board as RCP's second independent director, bringing a wealth of experience in digital systems, cyber security, and project governance expertise.
Lindsay has held various executive technology positions locally and internationally. She was 'Chief Enterprise Officer' at One NZ (formerly Vodafone), where she led the transformation of this established telecommunications brand into a diversified ICT service provider. She has also held executive roles with IBM and Microsoft in New Zealand and the USA.
RCP's Managing Director, Jeremy Hay, is excited about the potential for Lindsay's insights.
"The infrastructure, property and construction markets are experiencing a massive proliferation of competing and niche digital platforms. Like many businesses, RCP is also looking to develop technology to optimise how we work. Lindsay will help us navigate the opportunities around system design and implementation and how to appropriately integrate these with the various tools and platforms used by our clients and project partners."
"Our focus is to simplify the digital ecosystem while maximising our ability to collect and analyse data for the benefit of our stakeholders. Having worked closely with many client-side businesses across many different industries, Lindsay understands our challenges."
Lindsay is also a trustee at the Well Foundation and sits on the board of The Icehouse, a venture capital funding New Zealand technology startups and training programs, alongside RCP's other independent director, Steven Joyce.
Head of Government Advisory
Campbell Jensen has joined RCP as Head of Public Sector Advisory.
Campbell recently held senior positions at Air New Zealand, where he led the strategic planning of their airport infrastructure across 50 international and domestic airports and managed the relocation of their corporate headquarters from Auckland's CBD to the airport.
Before Air New Zealand, Campbell was 'Manager of Masterplanning, Strategy and Urban Planning' at Auckland Airport, where he spearheaded the strategic masterplan for the airport's entire land holding, including infrastructure and aeronautical assets. He has also worked for the Ministry for the Environment, leading complex and politically sensitive policy work across various sectors, including local government and resource management.
Campbell will head RCP's public sector advisory division to drive our multifaceted consulting service to local and central government organisations and public institutions throughout Aotearoa.
RCP's Director for Advisory Services, Cristean Monreal, feels that Campbell is arriving at RCP at the right time.
"It's no secret that the public sector needs to achieve better value and efficiency from its consultant spend. Most big advisory firms don't know how to structure big infrastructure projects or manage the commensurate commercial risks. Nor do they understand how the supply chain – public sector interface can be better managed to make better upfront decisions that enable progress.
Campbell's experience in large, infrastructure-dependent private sector organisations and public sector policy development is invaluable. He'll add value to our government clients by designing policy and strategies that are commercially well-informed and can be implemented or delivered while staying sympathetic to public sector constraints."
Campbell is a familiar face at RCP, having worked closely with us on numerous projects during his time at Air New Zealand and Auckland Airport.
