I am an impassioned and experienced businessman. Running my own businesses since 1973, the fourth generation in a family of Wellington business owners dating back to the 1930’s. My first business was a retail bookstore/news-agency in central Wellington (which I established with my wife Maggie) – Freeman’s Lotto & Cafe. We took that business from 2 to 16 staff, opened the first Lotto franchise in NZ, expanded and added a Cafe, and grew the turnover every consecutive year for the 25 years we owned it. My next business venture was in Real Estate with Harcourt’s. In my first year, I achieved “Rooky of the Year” and then took an opportunity to buy into the franchised business. During this time I revised & updated the Property Management division of the company, while myself and my partners increased turnover by 49%. From success in Real Estate Sales & Property – Management I moved to Business Broking with New Zealand’s leading broking company ABC Business Sales. This move gave me a wide and sympathetic insight into everyday issues confronting business owners. Moving on and back into business ownership, I joined my wife and daughter in ownership of The Costume Company. This successful family operated business was eventually sold down with a Huge Sale of stock & costumes, an event that gained national TV and Newspaper coverage. With my wealth of business experience and passion for the ongoing development and success of our Capital City, I now share my business experience and wisdom with Wellington Regional business owners as a Business Coach. I am an accredited Mentor and have won many awards for my services to Business Mentors New Zealand and the Pacific.
