This is a supplied media release.

Former chief executive of Ngāi Tahu Property, Tony Sewell, has been appointed an independent director of national multi-award winning building company Generation Homes. 

Generation Homes chief executive Kevin Atkinson said they sought Sewell’s involvement with the company because of his extensive governance experience and a strong land transaction and property background.

“During his 21-year tenure as chief executive of Ngāi Tahu Property, Tony oversaw the company’s shareholders equity grow from $50 million to $600 million,” he said.

Commenting on his appointment Mr Sewell said he considered Generation Homes highly successful with a solid and well-earned reputation as a leader in New Zealand’s new home build market.

Generation Homes is constantly innovating to provide the best new home solutions for its customers, Mr Sewell added.

“Over the last 20 years, Generation has built a proud heritage which bodes well for an exciting future. This is a company I’m proud to have my name associated with.”

In addition to its solid base throughout the North Island, Generation Homes has a growing market in Canterbury that will continue to strengthen with the benefit of Tony’s experience and expert advice.

“Tony’s appointment is particularly critical as the company expands into larger projects, requiring stronger iwi and community relationships,” Mr Atkinson said.
