Welcoming Mark Synnott to the Board

First Mortgage Managers Limited is pleased to announce the appointment of Mark Synnott to our Board.

Mark has been the Executive Chairman of Colliers NZ since May 2023, having previously been CEO for the thirty years prior. Mark’s association with Colliers goes back to 1989 (some 34 years ago) when he joined the Auckland office as an Office Leasing Manager and Broker.

Having stepped into the CEO role only five years after joining Colliers, under Mark’s leadership the team grew ten-fold (from 75 to nearly 750), with coverage extending to thirty offices across the country.

Mark is a fantastic leader and motivator, with key strengths in strategic planning, relationship building, people and culture development and the recruitment and retention of senior personnel.

Alongside his directorships, Mark and wife Sally oversee the Michael Synnott Charitable Trust which they established in 2008 in memory of Mark’s brother, Michael. The trust supports young people from South Auckland to achieve their potential via sponsorships which are provided in partnership with other entities such as the Tania Dalton Foundation.

Mark recently received the Supreme Excellence Award and the Outstanding Leadership Award at the Auckland Property People Awards 2023. This recognition is testament to his leadership and professional excellence, and his skill in navigating the market, and ongoing contributions to the industry.

We look forward to working with Mark and benefiting from his valuable expertise and skills.
