The Group’s principal is Craig Nisbet, previously a chartered accountant, with a degree in Commerce and Management from Lincoln University, a boutique investment banker, and also a registered craftsman plumber. This wonderfully unique set of qualifications and skills is of exceptional benefit to clients and project partners, particularly insofar as project appraisal, project costing, and project management are concerned.

The Group ethos is perhaps best articulated via the seven essential “Es that must prevail prior to deciding to accept engagement. These core values, written by Craig, are:

  • Ethics
  • Empathy
  • Expertise
  • Enjoyment
  • Economics
  • Environment
  • Exclusion of undesirable people and outcomes.

Craig is actively involved in the Hawkes Bay community, including surf life-saving, surfing, wind-surfing, rugby, skiing, and helping his whangai whanau in his beloved Mahia with their surf initiatives which assist at risk people via surfing.
