About Us

Kingfisher Group Limited

We’re an energetic team who are passionate about growing New Zealand businesses, and we want to keep New Zealand businesses just that…New Zealand owned and operated.

If you’re looking to exit your business at some stage (this may include a staged exit to ease into retirement) and want to make sure that it doesn’t just get swallowed up by a global corporate that doesn’t care about your people or the kiwi way of doing things, then talk to us. We are on the hunt to acquire New Zealand businesses, and to then apply our teams marketing, sales, operational and financial expertise to keep the business growing, by adding value to its clients and the people that work in the business itself.

Our team has over $1B of sales under their belts over their careers and have led businesses to achieve large scale growth and operational excellence across New Zealand and abroad. Coming from sales, finance and operational leadership backgrounds, we are a safe pair of hands to hand your business over to.

As kiwi’s, we naturally have that innovative drive and tenacity to try to improve the world we live in. We also understand that your business has been built up by the “blood sweat and tears” that you have invested in it; and we are happy to work with you through a gradual exit to allow you to gain comfort and confidence that our team has your businesses best interests at heart.
