SIMON FLEISHER

Chief Executive Officer
MInstD, CPEng, FEngNZ, CEng, FIMechE

 PWA6736-938-459

Simon Fleisher is the CEO of Wellington Cable Car Ltd (WCCL) and has held this post since October 2013. He is a Chartered Engineer and Engineering Project Manager by background and previously worked for Energy for Industry (now owned by Pioneer Generation) and Meridian Energy.

Although he originally graduated with a Master’s Degree in Mechanical Engineering from Bristol University, he served 16 years in the Royal Navy and 4 years in the Royal New Zealand Navy as a Marine Engineering Officer, having immigrated to New Zealand in February 2008. Before moving to Wellington with his family, he claims to have lived in the quaint, rustic seaside town of Portsmouth, Hampshire although he is a lifelong avid Tottenham Hotspur supporter.

He manages to keep his engineering dreams alive by taking an active interest in the more challenging technical problems that arise from operating and maintaining iconic but elderly transport infrastructures, such as Wellington’s Trolley Bus overhead network and the Cable Car.

He was elected a Fellow of the Institution of Mechanical Engineers in 2011 and also serves on the national executive committees of the IPENZ Mechanical Engineering Group and the Aotearoa Wave and Tidal Energy Association.
