Our 'Why' - A Personal Message from Adam...

Recent times have seen every day Kiwi's and NZ Businesses really strugge to make ends meet. The People's Choice is about bringing Buyers and Sellers together in a way that insulates against the Economic Storm that is hitting NZ and the World currently.

With that in mind, given our skill set and experience, how can we NOT answer the call?

Yes... it would have been easier to let someone else come forward... and for a time we waited and hoped they would.

We realise NOW is the time to assist with what is needed.

Plus, being a Key Responsible Officer means the regulatory authorities have established my capacity to sit on various banking and other financial institution boards to oversee an organisation's financial integrity (very different to financial performance or profit and loss of the institution).

How this level of experience benefits The People's Choice is that I've had to deal with...

  • Regulator forensic investigations
  • Immigration investigations
  • Compliance issues related to liquidity and contracts worth 100's of millions of dollars
  • Fraud by fellow directors, including a family member I had to put behind bars
  • The media and techniques they use to sensationalise things

All of which gives us, The People's Choice, the ability to read the terrain, identify what's coming and plan the most appropriate path forward. I maintain my Key Responsible Officer credentials because I dot my I's and cross my T's. Everything we do is by the book and compliant, able to withstand the toughest scrutiny.
