Our People

Creating spaces for Aucklanders needs a team of dedicated and passionate people, we have a team that encompasses these traits and share a vision for Auckland’s future.

The team at Eke Panuku cover a broad range of backgrounds and skill sets. Our team covers property managers through to urban designers and a bit of everything in between. One thing that unites us is our desire to make Auckland a better place to live and our vision to shape spaces for Aucklanders to love.
