Changing of the guard
January 10, 2017

After an impressive six years at the helm as Chief Executive Officer of Elta Group Asia region, Peter Wingfield’s role will change, focusing on the development of the Airepure business.

Peter founded Airepure Australia with friends Jim McIntosh and Roger Van Oosten in 1998, and was Managing Director when the company was acquired by the Elta Group in January 2011. His extensive knowledge and understanding of the building services industry and astute management skills were recognised by the Elta Group Board, and within a year he had taken on the wider role of Chief Executive Officer of the entire Elta Group Asia Pacific region.

Peter flourished in this role with an unyielding commitment, energy and drive for both Fantech and the group. This has enabled him to endure challenging periods such as the global financial crisis, while continuing to move forward. With Peter’s change in direction providing the impetus, the Elta Group Board decided to segment the growing Asia Pacific region.

After eight years at Fantech New Zealand, Mark Rickard will become Chief Executive Officer for the Fantech Group of business units and brands, effective 1 January, 2017. The promotion recognises Mark’s skillset and determination following his appointment as Managing Director of Fantech New Zealand in 2014 and the hard work he and his team did to establish the New Zealand operation in an enviable market-leading position.

Similarly, Nick Heaton was appointed Chief Executive Officer of Elta Group Asia based on his proven track record in business. Nick has been working in his new role since 1st October where he is responsible for the strategic development of all existing business units and brands in the Asian region.

The changes within the Elta Group will enable greater focus in each region and provide an even better service and improved solutions for customers.
