Tenant Advisory Leaders
Wellington (Occupier Services)
I have a strong background in the commercial property industry, having held positions in Asset Management for listed property funds Stride and Kiwi Property as well as successfully leading the Colliers Real Estate Management team in Wellington since 2015.
A passionate property professional with a strong focus on the strategic management of property portfolios, negotiation and property development including a solid understanding of issues of seismic risk, resilience and strengthening.
I am currently the Regional Chair of the Wellington Branch Committee for Property Council of New Zealand and a strong advocate for the property industry and Wellington’s economic development. This involvement with PCNZ has brought a wide ranging and broad understanding of regulatory frameworks, the machinery of government and has led to involvement into a number of working groups and consultations with local and central government.
