Professional Summary

I have been with Colliers since 2006, helping Auckland based companies find the right office space and negotiate successful leases.  Having trusted relationships with Auckland's landlords and in-depth knowledge of the office leasing market, I have helped lease 126,000 sqm of commercial office space.

By taking a genuine interest combined with an in-depth knowledge of the Auckland market and the office leasing process, I successfully connect businesses to buildings across Auckland.

Before Colliers, I worked at Microsoft in Sydney and Seattle, as a corporate account manager, looking after a select group of large national and multi-national organisations.  I was recognised for my attention to detail and customer-first approach, allowing me to do what was right for my clients, which in turn created long term wins for Microsoft.


I have been involved in 250 leasing transactions across Auckland.  The most memorable being; #AKL Grid Auckland, Auckland City Mission, Biomatters, Compac TOMRA, Datamine, Delegat Wines, Endace, Fronde, Fulton Hogan, Fusion 5, Klein Architects, Maynard Marks, Oyster Property Group, Philip Morris, Power by Proxi (Apple), Simpson Grierson, Soulmachine, Worely Parsons & Xero.

"I first approached Chris after seeing an office he was advertising which wasn't right for us but Chris listened very carefully to our needs, the style, size and location of office space we were looking for. Chris provided us with a number of very realistic options, always responded when required and managed a number of offers for us. The most impressive thing about Chris was his tenacity, we had a number of deals fall through for a variety of reasons but Chris always bounced back with a back up option and ultimately this tenacity which ended up with us signing a deal on one of his properties. I would happily work with Chris again as well as recommend him to others."  Lee Marshall - Director and Founding Partner of Hunter Campbell 

"Chris was fantastic help in finding our new home for PowerbyProxi on College Hill. He was very patient, took time to understand what we needed and when the right property showed up he helped us snap it up quickly. We are very pleased with our new home. I would highly recommend Chris!" Fady Mishriki - Founder - Power by Proxi (Sold to Apple Corporation)
