I was appointed to the role of CEO for Harcourts NZ in November 2015, having worked for the company for 23 years. His role is crucial in overseeing the company’s growth and strategic development.

I started my real estate career as a successful sales consultant before making the most of the opportunities Harcourts offers and becoming a business owner. I was later appointed business development manager for Harcourts in Christchurch and most recently was Harcourts NZ’s national auction manager.

Owning my own business also gave me a huge passion for auctioneering and I have been an extremely successful and sought-after real estate auctioneer for the past 17 years, winning the REINZ national auction championship in 2010.

Over the past 23 years working across all aspects of Harcourts’ business has given me an in-depth, detailed knowledge of the company, and the real estate industry, as well as an extensive professional network.

I am extremely proud to lead a company which has such a high-standing and proud history in the industry in New Zealand and I am extremely passionate about taking everything I have learned about real estate and our people and using it to take Harcourts NZ to the next level.
