New Chief Executive at Waitakere Properties

Waitakere Properties Ltd has appointed Greg Parker as its new chief executive.

He replaces Alan McGregor who left the company to pursue private interests.

Aged 36, Mr Parker was previously treasurer and company secretary at Evergreen Forests Ltd.

He has also worked as a consultant for Ernst & Young, and as chief executive at Tainui Development Ltd.

He has a Master of Business Administration from the University of Florida and brings a wealth of experience in all areas of property development, from commercial, to retail, industrial and residential developments.

One of his first tasks will be to focus on developing the land around the new Waitakere Central site in Henderson Valley Rd.

“I have always been passionate about property development and am excited about an opportunity to create shareholder value as well as having a positive impact on people’s working and living environments,” he says.

Waitakere Properties chair Ross Jewell has welcomed the appointment.

“He has tremendous business acumen, a huge amount of experience of the property sector, and has managed multi-million dollar projects. We had a number of high quality candidates for the job, and Greg shone out,” he says.

Waitakere Properties is the wholly owned property development arm of Waitakere City Council.
