Registered Financial Adviser
In 1980 I graduated with a Bachelor’s degree in Forestry and Real Estate in The Netherlands. I worked for the Dutch Ministry of Agriculture, responsible for the purchasing, selling and property management of rural properties for the use of land expropriation, nature reserves, roading and recreation.
After immigrating to New Zealand in 1984 with my wife Birgitta we started dairy farming in the Waikato region.
After a few years I went into rural real estate sales. I have owned a niche real estate company that specialised in the sale of rural properties and have been involved as a director for a company that specialises in commercial and industrial real estate in Hamilton.
5 years ago I decided to change my career and have since completed the New Zealand Certificate of Financial Advice Level 5.
My client base exists of dairy farmers, business owners and families.
We live on a 10 acre block in Matangi and enjoy regular visits to our Raglan weekend house.
I am interested in a wide range of sports in particular hockey (now as a coach), in line speed skating and kite boarding. Our 2 children are both married.
I take my job very seriously and I am very passionate about making sure that my clients get advice resulting in them getting the best products at the most competitive premiums.
