While Neville’s career started off in the electrical engineering field an opportunity to buy a motel lease in Queenstown in 1993 was one of those watershed moments in life that led to a total change in direction. Having since had two motel leases and then building and now operating a boutique 5 star accommodation property (Bluestone on George in Dunedin) he is still relishing that opportunity.

Neville has always strongly believed in the support structure offered by industry groups and has been actively involved from the time he joined the accommodation industry. With time spent on local executives/committees, the national Motel Association of NZ Board (since 2009), and taking an active part in local body issues affecting our industry, this has been a keen interest for him.

Having been on the amalgamation committee to explore and implement the amalgamation between the Motel Association of New Zealand and Hospitality New Zealand which has been the culmination of a great deal of effort, Neville is excited by this initiative as it ensures strong advocacy and support for all the hospitality sectors in a challenging environment.

On a personal note Neville is married to Sandra and has two children Cate & Marc who have been brought up in the industry and who strangely enough have no desire at all to enter the “family business”. One day Neville intends to take up golf and a number of other recreational activities long neglected for work, but in the meantime enjoys gardening, maintenance, bookwork and all the other myriad of tasks associated with running a small business.
