Fulton Hogan NZ leadership appointments

Monday, July 17, 2017



Fulton Hogan has announced the appointment of Graeme Johnson to the position of CEO NZ regional business, and Domenic De-Fazio to the position of CEO NZ construction.

Managing director Nick Miller says Johnson and De-Fazio are respected Fulton Hogan leaders with nearly 30 years’ collective experience within the company. They take over from Robert Jones, who stepped down at the end of June after serving as the New Zealand CEO for two years.

Fulton Hogan has realigned its New Zealand leadership into two streams – regional business, and construction – to build on the strength and talent within the business. Working closely together, Johnson and De-Fazio will deliver an integrated end-to-end service and innovative technologies that meet the needs of customers today and in the future.

Johnson has held several senior management roles within Fulton Hogan, most recently as general manager South Island, responsible for six South Island regional businesses and more than 1600 staff. He has worked across many parts of the business here and in Fiji, giving him a solid understanding of Fulton Hogan’s diverse operations.

De-Fazio was most recently the general manager southern construction (Victoria and Tasmania), where he led the business’ diversification into rail, water and airports. Under his leadership Fulton Hogan secured many significant projects, including more than AU$1 billion of rail work. He also led Fulton Hogan’s first major project in Queensland, expanding the company’s construction footprint beyond Victoria, and was one of the company‘s first Australian alliance leaders.
