The award recognises a high achiever in the industry involved in a practical or administrative role and who has demonstrated commitment, personal development and achievement in his career.

One of nine directors of the Comag Ltd, Chris started work as a roofer when he left school and has been with the company for 16 years. He holds National Certificates in Metal Roof and Wall Cladding and Metal Tiles and is a Licensed Building Practitioner. He received his award at this month’s RANZ conference at Wairakei.

The award’s benefactor is RANZ Life Member, Stuart Thomson, author of the NZ Metal Roofing Code of Practice and a roofing consultant for the last 25 years. As a member of the judging panel for this award, Stuart said it was gratifying to have seen good work from specialist practitioners with skills, dedication and qualifications.
