Jayden Ellis Aggregate and Quarry Association (AQA)

Jayden Ellis is Chair of AQA Executive Board, and the Technical Manager of Stevenson Construction Materials, serving wider Auckland/Waikato. 

Jayden has been in the industry for 20 years, starting at Stevenson Laboratory in 1993. Jayden was a Founding Member of Civil Engineering Testing Association New Zealand (CETANZ) in 2008 and has been president since 2010. He is a member of AQA’s Technical Committee and is particularly interested in aggregate product development, quality assurance, and quality control testing of aggregates. Jayden would like to see more utilisation of marginal aggregates in construction and an increased understanding of our resources and their geological properties.

Jayden likes boating and fishing and watching a good movie is always good if the weather’s too stormy.
