After more than 20 years at the head of our company, Michael remains fully involved in day-to-day business. He manages our Christchurch activities, and spends time there most weeks.

“We’re every day people working along side real people. I think that’s a big part of the long-term success of the company,” Michael observes. “Our client relationships are close: we really get to know each person.”

“We meet with hiring staff and senior management. We get to know about the company, and how they manage their staff. We make sure everyone is working on the same page. We continue to meet on a regular basis — whether that’s in a meeting room or over a coffee.”

He loves the variety and challenge of his role: “I’m a people person. I love working with people to help them develop opportunities for themselves”.

Out of work, Michael is a long-time golfer. He’s a member of the Royal Wellington Golf Club, and currently plays on a nine handicap. He’s also a passionate cyclist, belonging to Wellington Veterans’ Cycling Club, where he’s also the club sponsorship manager.

On the bike, Michael has travelled to Europe to follow the Tour de France — and ride the cols — and to Australia to follow the Tour Down Under.
