A central Otago man born and bred, Brett decided to spread his wings for his O.E. After working in the contracts division of The Ministry of Works and completing an Engineering Cadetship, he decided to head overseas. After many adventures, he eventually ended up in London doing many jobs which included a stint in accounting, some ski instructing in Austria, and he was employed as a team supervisor on an off-shore rig. He eventually ended up forming a company and securing a large contract in the stone industry, where he settled for nine years carrying out many top-end restoration projects specialising in castles and top listed heritage buildings around Europe. During that journey, he was engaged by the British Stone Federation as a consultant and sent on projects all around the Northern hemisphere.
After 12 years in the U.K. and after getting married Brett decided it was time to head back to NZ to settle down and have a family. He continued to work in the construction industry, specialising in the restoration of heritage buildings and top-end architecturally designed homes. As projects in this industry involved a lot of travel within NZ, after two years of commuting to Christchurch and the Pacific region Brett decided he needed a change. It was at this point he rekindled a relationship he had previously with Construction Cost Consultants and joined the team in 2013.
Brett manages the team involved in developing the systems and processes currently used in the Sum Insured arm of the business which led to building the CCC app; ValueIt. This is an integral tool and is used on all our Sum Insured valuations both domestic and commercial.
Brett’s current role in CCC is National Survey Manager. In this role, he oversees the surveying teams around the country. He is involved in all stages of our surveyor’s role, from recruitment through their training process and ongoing assessments.
For leisure, Brett enjoys socialising and sport. He is an avid rugby follower and loves watersports too… in fact, there aren’t many sports that Brett isn’t keen on!
