Matt Wilton

Wellington Regional Manager

Matt began his career in construction as a quantity surveyor before working as a project manager for the client, consultant and for the main contractor. His ability to approach cost and design-related issues from each of these angles is advantageous to any project.

As Wellington Regional Manager, Matt is responsible for all Hawkins Building Projects activity in the region from business development, relationship building, and management, through to project resourcing and delivery. He’s held the role since Hawkins opened in Wellington in 2006.

“The construction industry is exciting and dynamic. Teamwork is everything. I’m proud to work for an industry-leading organisation with a strong family culture. We have a sense of combined purpose and a healthy team ethos.

“My team of passionate Wellingtonians is dedicated to growing a thriving local operation that will contribute to the region’s development. Our clients span the commercial, public and institutional sectors.”

Matt brings a vast amount of energy and passion to Hawkins, with a hands-on leadership approach, from project initiation through to completion. Matt’s experience as a client, consultant and main contractor in New Zealand and the UK has given him the ability to look at the business from all angles and has provided him with a considerable understanding of various procurement and delivery solutions.
