Co-founding Director

Bob Foster


Bob and Ron had a desire for a business built on relationships and trust that led the pair to start Arrow International in 1984. Bob grew up in Auckland but made the South Island home in the ’70s, drawn by the major infrastructure projects and outdoors lifestyle. A prominent businessman with 40 years experience of establishing and growing companies in Australia and New Zealand, Bob provides considerable construction and senior leadership weight to the Arrow Board.
An avid multi-sporter, Bob has competed in numerous adventure races around the world.

Ron Anderson


Sealing multi-million deals with a handshake and doing business built on trust and his word is as natural to Ron Anderson as the southern mountains he treasures. Born and raised at the head of the Otago Peninsula, Ron founded Arrow International in Dunedin in 1984 alongside Bob Foster. Since then he has led the business in the delivery of major projects throughout Australia and New Zealand. With over 45 year’s industry experience, Ron provides construction advice and governance to the Arrow Board. Ron serves on the Board of the NZ Winter Games Trust.
