Meet Carol Moffatt, our new Head of Communications and Key Relationships

“You’ll hear me coming before you see me!” Piritahi’s recently appointed Head of Communications and Key Relationships, Carol Moffatt, is a strong advocate for communities – she has plenty to say and, without doubt, the expertise and experience that gives weight to her words.

While Carol has been in communications for much of her life, her career in construction started over a decade ago following devastating 2010/2011 earthquakes in Canterbury. Living in Christchurch at the time, Carol joined Fletcher Earthquake Recovery (EQR).  EQR was established to manage the home repair programme on behalf of the Earthquake Commission (EQC). However, she was soon told that, “horizontal infrastructure is where the rubber really hits the road”, and so she jumped into the world of civil construction and hasn’t looked back.

Initially moving to Christchurch for a two-year stint, Carol eventually made it back to Auckland over a decade later, having played a significant part in stakeholder engagement on SCIRT – the massive rebuild of Christchurch’s horizontal infrastructure.

Stepping into her new role at Piritahi, Carol is “really looking forward to adding a bit of different thinking… I always try to look at things from another perspective.” 

This approach truly resonates with everybody who works for Piritahi and the people who live in the neighbourhoods we are working in:

“We understand the significant disruptions caused by our work and always hold a place at the table for the views of everyone affected, to be heard”. - Carol
