Tainui Group Holdings (TGH), the intergenerational investor for Waikato-Tainui has appointed one of New Zealand’s most experienced development professionals, Peter Tuck, to the newly-created role of general manager development. 

TGH chief executive Chris Joblin said the appointment recognised the growth Tainui Group Holdings expects over the coming years and reflected growing confidence in the Waikato region.

“Peter is a very strong addition to our team, and we’re excited to welcome him and his whaanau to the Waikato in the new year. Peter will be a great fit as we look to pick up the pace by developing more ‘real assets’ from the unique land and property endowments of Waikato-Tainui,” Joblin said.

With more than 25 years’ experience spanning major developments across New Zealand, Scotland, England, the US and the United Arab Emirates, Tuck is currently development manager at Kiwi Property, leading their $250 million expansion of Sylvia Park. His international projects include the Westfield Annapolis in the US and The Dubai Mall which, when opened, was the world’s largest shopping mall.

Tuck is a graduate of the University of Canterbury with a Master of Commerce with first class honours and a Bachelor of Civil Engineering.  

After a number of years working with major international firms including Exxon Mobil, Lendlease, Westfield, Emaar Properties and Kiwi Property, he is excited to join an iwi-owned entity.

“At this stage of my career, I am keen to bring my experience from delivering large, complex developments to an organisation with a long-term view to help future generations and grow the region. Tainui Group Holdings and the Waikato have some massive opportunities ahead and I’m excited to help deliver these,” Tuck said.
