New Chairman And President NZPI

New Chairman And President For The New Zealand Property Institute

The New Zealand Property Institute has a new President and Chairman of Directors. He is Mr. Anthony Robertson.

Mr Robertson has an extensive work history in the New Zealand property industry having held corporate real estate positions with the Telecom Group of Companies from the late 80’s through to the late 90’s. He is a founding shareholder and director of Telco Asset Management Limited, a technology driven real estate, facilities and infrastructure manager providing services to the Australasian corporate and general business market.

Mr. Robertson said today, “The Institute and its members play a vital role in New Zealand’s $100 billion economy. New Zealand has some $400 billion invested in land, buildings and associated infrastructure, and property impacts on every New Zealand citizen.

“In today’s business environment the stakeholders, whether they be customers, suppliers, shareholders or the public, expect or indeed demand that professional suppliers and service delivery agents across all business disciplines and professions perform to an ethical, transparent and value adding mandate.

“To assist with this, primary initiatives for the Institute going forward must involve; strong market positioning and brand awareness programmes, development of meaningful professional development programmes and cost effective delivery of membership support services.

“We need to position the New Zealand Property Institute and its multi-disciplinary membership as the premier commentator on economic, environmental and social issues impacting or impacted on by developments in the real estate management profession (in its broadest definition) and its associated facilities and infrastructure support arenas.

“It is an exciting time for the sector and the Institute. I look forward to building on the efforts to date and taking the Institute forward,” Mr. Robertson concluded.


Background on the New Zealand property Institute

The new Institute has emerged following the merger of the New Zealand Institute of Valuers (NZIV), the Institute of Plant & Machinery Valuers (IPMV), and the Property & Land Economy Institute of New Zealand (PLEINZ).

It has some 3,000 members representing a broad spectrum of excellence and expertise including suppliers of valuation, land economics, asset and facilities management and corporate advisory.

These professionals deliver services across New Zealand, Australia and the greater Asia Pacific region in disciplines as diverse as rural and agri-business, mining and tourism, utilities and infrastructure through to perhaps the more widely recognised and traditional urban sector services of commercial, industrial and residential valuation and property management.

The Institute has 17 branches across provincial and metropolitan New Zealand, a number of overseas members, and is affiliated to a number of other international property organisations.

The Institute promotes a code of ethical conduct and provides a range of membership services and benefits.
