Professional Summary

James has recently joined Colliers as the dedicated General Manager for the Central NI Region to support the alignment and expansion of the commercial and agribusiness growth opportunities throughout the Eastern and Central North Island. James has strong links with the commercial, farming and financial services sectors as well as 18 years experience owning and operating his own agribusiness venture from offices  locally and abroad.

His previous background in banking, investment management, and running an internationally recognised NZ brand, provides the commercial experience in helping lead an international brand locally excites me.
Through his expertise, knowledge base and the local and international networks he maintains, he prides himself on being able to identify relevant opportunities throughout the regions.

His philosophy of building a team is similar to a sport he is passionate about - “in a company, we are all in the same boat, and what can be achieved and accomplished working as a team is far greater than any effort as an individual within the crew”.
