Peter Thompson, Managing Director
Barfoot & Thompson is much more than a business to Peter; it's quite literally part of his family. He started out in 1981 in the rental division at the Otahuhu branch and continued to move through a number of positions in the firm including sales, administration and management. He was made a Director in 1997, and ultimately became Managing Director in 2005.
Peter is the grandson of Maurice Thompson — the original Thompson in the Barfoot & Thompson team which started out in the early 1920s. 95 years on, those family links are still important to the company; his daughter Paula joined Peter in the firm as the first of the fourth generation, followed by her cousin Matthew.
Giving back to the community is a major focus for Peter, who has a special interest in Starship Foundation, believing that New Zealand’s children are its next leaders and that it’s important to improve health standards across the country. He is also seen as a leading spokesperson for the real estate industry, with a passion to improve the image of real estate agents.
Peter has held several directorships over the years, including being on the Board of Auckland Rugby, and still is a current Board Member of realestate.co.nz, an industry web portal company. He was awarded Life Membership of the Real Estate Institute of New Zealand in 2011, and was made a Life Member of Auckland Rugby in December 2017.
