Harcourts MD Joins Prestigious Business Roundtable

Harcourts MD Joins Prestigious Business Roundtable

New Zealand’s leading business organisation, the New Zealand Business Roundtable, has formally invited Mike Green, Managing Director of Harcourts International Ltd to become a member.

Mr Green said it was an honour to accept the invitation to join such a prestigious organisation. The New Zealand Business Roundtable is made up of 50-60 mainly chief executives, managing directors and chairpersons of large New Zealand enterprises, including Sir Gil Simpson (Jade Software), Barry Coleman (National Business Review), and Dr Roderick Deane (Telecom), among others.

All are actively involved in the day to day operation and direction of the resources of their business as well as taking a wider view of the issues confronting the New Zealand economy. Mr Green said that being able to contribute to a group committed to promoting a successful dynamic economy provided a rare and special opportunity to assist the greater business community throughout the country.

Roger Kerr, executive director of the New Zealand Business Roundtable, warmly welcomed Mr Green to the organisation. “The Business Roundtable has an ambitious vision for our country.”

Mr Kerr added, “I have great respect for the leading New Zealand business people who join us to stand up for a better New Zealand, with higher living standards and a strong and vibrant economy. The Business Roundtable membership is today larger than it has ever been, reflecting the focus of New Zealand’s business sector on constructively contributing toward the overall development of New Zealand.”

Formerly an owner of Mike Green Real Estate Ltd (Auckland), Mr Green has over 20 years of real estate industry experience. During ownership of the Auckland franchise, he built his business up to nine offices and over 130 people, achieving No 1 Harcourts Franchise for New Zealand for four consecutive years.

Mr Green joined the Harcourts corporate team in 1997 moving to Queensland, Australia to establish and grow Harcourts' Australian arm. Taking over as Managing Director of the entire Harcourts group in December 1999, Mr Green is now responsible for the overall operation and direction of Harcourts throughout Australasia, and along with General Manager Paul Wright, owns Harcourts International Ltd.

As the largest real estate group in the country, Harcourts has 160 New Zealand offices and close to 90 offices in Queensland and New South Wales. Harcourts opened its first Fiji office in October this year and is currently exploring further expansion options as part of its growth strategy. Harcourts achieved a record-breaking $8 billion in property sales in the 2002-2003 financial year and is currently on track to achieve $12 billion in 2003-2004. Harcourts first began in Wellington in 1888.
