“The investment in Kinloch is also a strong endorsement of the property investment skills of Mark Petersen, former managing director of Shortland Properties, who heads up the property team at Kinloch.”
Mr Craig Dunstan, MacarthurCook Limited Managing Director, said “the acquisition of an interest in Kinloch expands the activities of MacarthurCook Limited into the New Zealand marketplace and brings a relationship with two of New Zealand’s leading industry executives.”
