A little about Alan’s background:

Before moving into business sales, Alan worked over 15 years in the engineering and construction industry here in New Zealand and in the UK.  While living in London his interest in business was peaked after setting up and running his own successful Contracting/Recruitment business providing CAD services and placing other CAD operators within companies.

After returning from London Alan joined the team at Barker Business and quickly became one of the outstanding performers. Now 10 years down the track it’s safe to say he knows his stuff and his experience, honesty, professionalism and hard work ethic has been the corner stone of his success.

Alan says: “I’m extremely proud of the success I've had in helping my clients and take great pleasure in seeing them justly rewarded for all their hard work and efforts. I genuinely want to help people with their short and long-term business objectives so if you’re looking to sell, or would just like some expert friendly advice, I'll ensure you are well looked after.  Furthermore, if you put your trust in me to represent your business, be assured I will protect your interests and work tirelessly to get you the best possible result.”

Outside of work Alan is a keen traveller and sportsperson - enjoying most ocean and snow activities. He loves to spend as much time as he can with his family - especially when they manage to get out on the water or up a mountain.
