Executive Roles


Commercial Property Development & Management Consulting

January 1980 - September 2017 (37 years)

Nigel's professional career spans some 37 years. He commenced his career with New Zealand's leading building company Fletcher Development & Construction—gaining valuable property skills on a range of retail, commercial and industrial design-build projects. He has development direction experience on a variety of speculative projects in Auckland and on larger urban-scale projects. These include the greenfield planning and nascent development of the award-winning 378 hectare Norwest mixed-use project in Sydney (now home to 400+ firms and 25,000+ people), the Wintergardens retail project in Queenstown and the South of Lichfield precinct in Christchurch. For approximately 23 years Nigel has operated his own consultancy. He has advised corporate, public sector and high net worth clients and acquired a reputation as a forward-thinking specialist and for taking on difficult challenges. In the real estate sector, Nigel has experience in London with an international agency and in New Zealand with boutique firms (including his own) and he was previously Chief Executive of a specialist national agri-sector and infrastructure valuation firm. He has also written two books on property marketing—both focused on helping owners achieve a better outcome from the sale of their real estate assets. In addition to his property related work, Nigel has the rare experience of being Executive Director of a Crown economic development entity mandated with providing advice to the Government in relation to major events—including the America's Cup, APEC, the Olympic Winter Games, the Commonwealth Games and the World Triathlon Champs. He also has management consulting experience in the tourism, ICT, bio-tech and niche manufacturing sectors.
