Professional Summary

Tim Bowden joined the Sales and Leasing team at Colliers International Wellington in April 2017. He specialises in Sales and Leasing in the Southern and Eastern suburbs of Wellington.

He first started with Colliers in 2013 acting as lease manager across the Land Information New Zealand contract before moving within Colliers to a lease advisory position with Z Energy. After managing Z’s nationwide retail portfolio Tim decided to transfer his property experience to the role of Sales and Leasing Broker in the Wellington market.

Tim understands that property is often not the core business of his clients and as such his communication skills and expertise across the different aspects of property enable him to deliver clients what they need when they need it. Having worked with owner-occupiers through to institutional owners and tenants, Tim has a wide network countrywide that helps him achieve outstanding results for his clients.


Acting in a contract environment, Tim has learnt to land on his feet and quickly identify problem areas and risks across nationwide property portfolios. Through both the Land Information New Zealand and Z Energy Limited contracts Tim helped develop and implement measures to regularise landuse, manage critical lease deadlines, and maximise property revenues for his clients. Specific projects include:

- Completion of the highest and best use strategy for LINZ top 50 revenue earning properties;
- Development of property reporting systems for LINZ;
- Management and negotiation of sales processes for Z Energy divestment properties;
- Re-structuring and negotiation of Z Energy’s aviation lease portfolio.
