Infrastructure specialist Delta announces the appointment of Mike Costelloe as its Chief Executive Officer.

Delta Chair Steve Thompson is pleased to appoint Mike Costelloe as Chief Executive Officer of Delta following a thorough and competitive executive search process, which considered candidates from throughout New Zealand and overseas.

“Mike will lead the next phase of Delta as an expert contracting services provider to its energy and environmental customers. Since January 2015, Mike has been General Manager, Strategic Accounts Downer New Zealand. Prior to that, he was General Manager Otago/Southland Downer New Zealand.

“The Board and I are very pleased to welcome Mike to the organisation. His track record in the highly competitive contracting sector positions him well to drive Delta’s future success, to prepare the organisation as it adapts to new energy technologies and to deliver to the exacting requirements of our customers,” says Mr Thompson.

Mr Costelloe, who resides in Dunedin, takes up the role of Delta Chief Executive on 19 June and is looking forward to the new challenge.

“I have a real desire to build on the strengths of Delta’s highly skilled people and deepen its presence in its core markets of energy and environmental services. I believe Delta’s existing customer partnerships and forward workloads are a sound basis for an exciting new phase that I am proud to lead.”
