Managing Director and Property Manager
CJ grew up in Auckland but her mother was from a high country sheep station in Central Otago, so she has always had one foot firmly planted in the South Island. Having attended St Cuthbert’s College, she studied at AUT and Tauranga Hospital before heading overseas.
This 20 year overseas experience created the opportunity for CJ to build a 12 year career in international licensed merchandising, being intellectual property and trademark management. This industry is a fascinating mix of stringent legal and financial management, where CJ was responsible for brands including Marvel Entertainment, Universal Studios, Discovery Channel and Lion King to name a few, throughout southern Africa.
In 2010 CJ returned home to NZ permanently, just as the NZ property market was recovering from the Global Financial Crisis. Having owned rentals overseas, assessing property opportunities upon her return was second nature, and led to her investing in NZ property investment training. Saltark Property Management evolved from this foundation.
CJ’s goal is to build a property management company with an excellent reputation that is still in business and thriving in 50 years’ time.
