Katrina Kidson appointed CEO of Kidson Construction

In January 2014, following four years as a Director, Katrina Kidson was been appointed as the CEO of Kidson Construction and has relocated to Nelson to lead the business started 50 years ago by her father Brian Kidson.

A civil engineer with 20 years experience, Katrina is well known and widely respected within the infrastructure sector for her strategic, operational, technical and interpersonal skills. She has held a number of challenging leadership positions, most recently as the CEO of Isthmus (one of the country’s leading design consultancies) and prior to that in a range of operational and strategic roles with global engineering and environmental consultancy MWH.

With Katrina’s appointment as CEO she becomes one of the few women leading a construction company in New Zealand today. It is a position that she relishes and hopes will motivate young women entering engineering. “Over my 20 year career I have been lucky enough to experience a diverse range of roles that have inspired and challenged me,” Katrina explains. “My engineering degree has enabled me to develop sustainable infrastructure that strengthens communities. This work has never been as important or rewarding as it is now with the major and challenging programmes of work currently underway in New Zealand such as the Canterbury Rebuild.”

Katrina explains that being one of a small number of women in engineering has helped her get noticed and provided new opportunities, but her success has come through her unique blend of hard and soft skills – something she can thank her engineering degree for developing. “My technical training developed my analytical abilities and helped me confidently make the right, and sometimes hard, decisions whether they are to do with projects, people or organisations, while my interpersonal skills have helped me develop strong and enduring relationships,” she says. “Both attributes are critical to my leadership success and will be vital as I work together with our executive team to strengthen and grow Kidson Construction.”

Katrina Kidson studied Civil Engineering at Canterbury University. Following graduation in the early 1990s she joined the Dunedin Office of engineering consulting firm Royds Garden (which is now called MWH). Throughout her 17 years with MWH, Katrina held a variety of roles in Dunedin, Christchurch, Thames, Auckland and Sydney that spanned project and programme management, team leadership, client relationship and strategic and change management and culminated in her position on the Asia Pacific Leadership Team where she was responsible for leading organisational change. Katrina’s strong performance across every aspect of her diverse career has led to her becoming a well respected and highly sought after executive in the infrastructure industry.

Following MWH, Katrina spent three years in Auckland as the CEO of Isthmus, NZ's leading urban design, landscape architecture and architecture firm.  Over three years in charge of Isthmus, Katrina guided the firm through a sharp recession to emerge with an expanded service offering, enhanced profile and new client and partner relationships.
