Glenn Irving


BE (Nat Res - Hons), MApplSc (Nat ReS ENG – HONS)

Glenn joined CGW in 2017, as their first staff member on the West Coast.  Glenn has led a varied life applying his engineering skills to a wide variety of projects, and in the process has gained experience in construction, water management and commercial energy efficiency projects.

Glenn has been a part of the Westport community for 15 years, and is well known for leading some significant volunteer construction projects in public spaces around the town.  He has recently spent 7.5 years as General Manager of the Pulse Energy Recreation Centre, so brings significant management experience to the role as well.

He has also enjoyed a double life as an outdoor instructor, and has worked both in NZ and overseas teaching life skills to youth through outdoor education.  He still dabbles with this in his spare time to make sure there is balance in his life!

In his spare time Glenn rides bikes, builds bamboo bikes, tramps, kayaks, climbs, swims, runs and takes his two young kids on adventures whenever he can.
