Owners and Managing Directors
Robbie and Michelle Gale along with Gavin and Katie O'Connor are the fiercely compassionate and innovative leaders who steer the dynamic ship that is - Tūpore Infrastructure.
Having run the largely successful concreting business ‘CPM’, in 2015 Robbie & Michelle decided to partner and merge their company with Russell Roads.
Their vision was to become a ‘full service’ civil construction company who delivered high-quality outcomes for its clients and its people. With the introduction of Gavin O’Connor in mid 2022 as chief executive, work got underway to bring the full service offering to reality and position the company to being ‘more than just roads’.
Gavin’s experience in management positions with Stantec has brought a new level of professionalism to the business.
An exciting new era of the business is underway with Gavin and wife Katie becoming directors and owners of the business and a transition to a new company name that brings the combined vision as a local full service infrastructure company to the fore.
Tūpore Infrastructure is about making a meaningful difference across Te Matau a Māui, the East Coast and central North Island.
We’re passionately and generously committed to driving positive social benefit for our workers, their whānau and communities – making lives and communities better.
