Stride chief executive Philip Littlewood, who joined the company in June 2017, said this appointment completed his executive team, which now had “the right mix of domestic & international experience to seek new opportunities & further grow Stride Property Group”.


Ignite has appointed a new associate, Stuart McKechnie, to the residential team in the Auckland studio.

An experienced design practitioner of 17 years, Stuart has worked with a variety of architecture firms in London, Vancouver and Auckland, and until recently has been in private practice specialising in small-scale residential projects.

Ignite Residential Director, Michael Bilsborough, says Stuart’s extensive knowledge of the Auckland residential environment and meticulous attention to planning requirements, consents and buildability gives him great credibility with builders as well as local authorities.


Auckland International Airport Ltd has appointed Mary-Liz Tuck as its general manager of corporate services, starting in early 2019. She will be responsible for key corporate functions including legal, people, safety & public affairs.

CBRE has appointed Toby Scott as director of debt & structured finance in New Zealand.

Mr Scott, a real estate investment & finance specialist, has been involved in New Zealand’s commercial real estate market for 15 years. He has expertise across all sectors from managing debt portfolios in New Zealand & the UK.

CBRE Wellington managing director Matthew St Amand said Mr Scott’s appointment was an exciting step for the New Zealand business: “Many real estate transactions benefit greatly from the inclusion of a debt specialist. Toby’s excellent reputation in the property industry, combined with his existing relationships with clients, allows CBRE to differentiate ourselves from our competitors.”


CoreLogic NZ Ltd has appointed Peter Bromley as NZ executive sales & marketing general manager, based in Auckland.

There he took the business from 9 franchises to 55 across NZ and Australia,  achieving a top 10 overall brokerage group result amongst other impressive metrics: “That role was on both sides of the real estate equation - and one in which I fully appreciated the value of power in delivering a top quality vendor experience. Co-ordinating lead generation, building relationships between agents and financial services and ensuring network utilisation was a focus, as was excellent recruitment and internal training. It was an incredibly rewarding experience”.
