Don Smith National Director Corporate Solutions Colliers International
"It’s been a pleasure to deal with Mathew in the multiple roles he has had at LINZ. He understands the meaning of the words “professional partnership” and this has allowed Colliers to collaborate with him and his team in striving for LINZs goals. His focus on the solution and a desire to continually improve are very strong skills."
Baden Ewart Chair/Director, and Senior Executive Public Sector and Primary Health Care
" Mathew was seconded to CERA from LINZ to lead part of the Residential Red Zone Clearance Programme from late 2011 through to April 2016. This was a unique challenge; the first of its kind in NZ. Mathew's role required that he, along with others, develop a business process liaising with home owners, insurers, CCC officials, LINZ, demolition and other contractors to clear the land, while having regard to ecological and environmental challenges to ensure the cleared area retained visual and recreational amenity for the future. Mathew's contribution to the success of the programme can not be understated. He is a professional manager and leader, honest and courageous; creative, responsible and reliable."
