Raised on a farm in North Canterbury, he graduated from Lincoln University with a DipAg and Dip FMGT in 1983, before spending 23 years as a stock agent in the Hawke’s Bay, Manawatu and Canterbury regions.
More recently, from 2000 to 2009, he worked alongside Canterbury’s dairy farmers as a stock agent, initially for Rural Livestock, then for PGG Wrightson.
In 2009, he transferred his agricultural expertise from stock agency to the property sector. Since then, he has focused on assisting farmers to buy and sell land. He was named PGG Wrightson Real Estate’s “Rookie of the Year” for 2009/2010 and has since consistently been one of PGG Wrightson Real Estate’s top performers being named 5th rural sales across New Zealand in 2020.
Following on from his successful sales career he has taken on the sales managers role for the Canterbury/West Coast region and looks forward to helping the local team continue to achieve outstanding service for their clients.
