Chief Executive Officer

Nigel Hadgkiss has held the position of FWBC Director since October 2013.

The Director’s functions are set out in s.10 of the FWBI Act, and include:

  • promoting harmonious, productive and cooperative workplace relations in the building industry;
  • providing information, assistance and advice;
  • promoting and monitoring compliance; and
  • inquiring into and investigating any suspected contraventions of a designated building law or a safety net contractual entitlement.

Senior Executive Service (SES) Officers

At the close of the 2014 to 15 financial year, the Director was supported by three business group managers. They are required to provide high-level policy and strategic advice and report on matters relating to their specific business group to the Director and the FWBC Executive Board.

In June 2015, a fourth group manager was appointed to fulfil the role of Chief Operating Officer (COO). The COO is due to commence early in the 2015-16 financial year and will be responsible for the corporate functions of the agency. He will also undertake the role of Chief Financial Officer.
