“As a City Council we want to play our part in helping Wellington be a really competitive City – moving from ‘good’ to ‘great’ if you like. We have three rules in doing that. First of all we’ve got to do the basics well. Secondly, we’ve got to be a well led City with an ambitious vision which we really drill down into the organisation. Thirdly, we need to play our part in delivering economic growth as part of the wider Wellington group of public, private and voluntary organisations. I think Downer can help on all three counts. You’ve got a crucial role within your contract in doing the basics well. If there are potholes in the roads and the streets aren’t clean you won’t get firms to come here and invest. So that’s an absolutely crucial role. But you’re also part of our local government family and you’re also one of the major employers in the area too. So I think you’ve also got a wider role in terms of your Corporate responsibility. We’ve always found you a good partner to work with but I think you’ve got a broader role as well.” DOWNER ARMY KNIFE Kevin Lavery Chief Executive, Wellington City Council DOWNER / IN BLACK & WHITE / 23
