Senior Management Team
Every project comes under the direct control of one of HRS’s senior managers; Andrew Marshall, Richard Gibb, or Owen Rees. Ultimately responsible for the overall project delivery (from early contractor involvement, estimating and tendering, project execution, to handover), they provide the necessary governance, direction and instruction to empower the project team.
They have proven their capability through the management and delivery of a wide range of building and civil projects. As well as having extensive construction experience all are tertiary qualified and are active members of Master Builders and NZIOB.
“I am committed to the construction industry; it is a very dynamic and exciting industry to be involved in. We are the people that transform clients’ dreams into reality. This responsibility is hugely rewarding and makes this industry the one that I want to be a part of for the rest of my life.”

Hi. I’m Andrew Marshall, director and general manager at HRS. Taking on the challenges of owning a construction company was a natural progression for me, cementing (excuse the pun) my commitment to the construction industry. I enjoy nothing more than transforming clients’ dreams into reality. What I’m really good at (and that also goes for Richard and Owen), is listening, quickly gaining an understanding of a client’s business, how this influences the build they are after and offering my construction expertise to provide the right solution for the business fit. I like to think that clients are looking to work with a main contractor that brings solid experience, integrity, commitment, and enthusiasm to the table. That’s who we are at HRS.
“I enjoy the challenges of the construction industry and am committed to seeing the future of our industry strengthened by further education and the support of our employees, along with ensuring that they have the challenges that make this industry interesting and enjoyable to be involved in.”

Hi. I’m Richard Gibb, director and construction manager at HRS. It’s important to me that there is a seamless transition between contract award and execution of the physical build. I provide the necessary leadership and vision of project objectives and outcomes to the project team. I’m actively involved in the day-to-day operations of our projects and support the project team by ensuring the necessary processes and resource is in place to achieve project requirements for safety, programme and quality. It’s not unusual of me to add a pinch of humour into the day – it can relieve the pressure in an often demanding work environment.
“Construction has been a big part of my life for the past 40 years. I still get a real buzz form completing projects, working with the talented team of tradespeople and professional we bring together for our project teams."

I don’t have any qualms about saying I’m the “R” in HRS. I’m Owen Rees commercial manager at HRS. I founded the company back in 1988. Today, in my cross-functional role (new business, financial compliance and project delivery), I like to think I’m the “go to man”– having a deep understanding of all aspects of HRS’s business. I am very happy sharing my (very old and wise) construction knowledge, lesson learnt and business experiences with the wider project team. While I might struggle with new technology every other day, I still surprise myself with the innate ability to come up with some great solutions when it comes to building buildings!
