Our Team

Neil Carr, Director

Neil established PropertyPathways in 2006, building on a 30-year career in New Zealand's property industry.

His previous roles spanned both the private and public sectors, working in organisations including Transit New Zealand, Todd Motors, AMP, and the former Ministry of Works and Development.

Neil’s a hands-on kind of guy. He works directly with clients, bringing personal care and expertise in negotiation, facilitation, strategy development and implementation to many of PropertyPathways’ projects. He's been involved with some significant and high-profile property-related projects in sectors such as central government, telecommunications, energy, transport, and infrastructure development.

Neil is proud of what PropertyPathways has achieved, and the strong relationships the team has developed with their clients. He believes PropertyPathways provides something quite unique:

“We have a great depth of experience and expertise, and a comprehensive understanding of our clients’ needs. But what sets us apart is our pragmatic yet free-thinking approach, combined with our can-do attitude, flexibility, and agility to respond quickly when it's needed. We're committed to offering value – whether through the fresh perspectives we provide, the innovative ideas we develop, or the fees we charge. Our clients know they can rely on us to deliver, with no surprises. We take the hassles off their hands, and lift the stresses off their shoulders. It's really rewarding work – we love what we do."

Murray Chapman, Consultant

Murray joined PropertyPathways in 2011, bringing 40 years of experience in engineering, construction, and business consulting.

He's worked for companies such as the Ministry of Works, and Mobil. He has often utilised his engineering-orientated background for major strategic initiatives and business development projects. Many of those related to change management, business re-engineering and procurement. In 1997, as Executive Director, Murray set up the Wellington operation for Outsource Solutions Limited – a provider of office support and administration services for a range of New Zealand's blue-chip companies.

He became part of the PropertyPathways team soon after the devastating Canterbury earthquakes, at a time when earthquake support services in the region were urgently needed. Since then he's been helping companies in the area to support their employees in managing their relationships with EQC, insurance companies, and other related organisations.

Murray’s natural ability to empathise and collaborate with others has been one of the keys to his success with PropertyPathways. In addition, his extensive knowledge, attention to detail, problem-solving ability, and relationship-management skills have proved invaluable for people – particularly at times when they feel completely overwhelmed by the earthquake recovery process.
