About Us

Hunter Powell Investment Partners are business owners, investor & capital partners, and strategic advisors to Small & Medium Enterprise (SME) businesses and not-for-profit organizations seeking to grow.

Our investment, mergers, acquisition and advisory experience spans New Zealand, Australia, SE Asia and the Middle East. We have a proven track record of success in strategic & operational business leadership and sector consolidation, with a reputation for concluding transactions effectively, efficiently and pragmatically.

Our reputation for developing and maintaining positive working relationships with vendors, management and staff during, and subsequent to, acquisitions is second-to-none.  We understand, and have personally experienced, the very real concept of “Sellers Remorse” and appreciate that you, a business owner in your 50’s & 60’s, may be putting off this life-changing decision out of concern for your family, your staff and perhaps the longevity of your business.  If this sounds like you, or you just want strategic support to grow out of the SME stage, call us.  A gradual change in the ownership of your business may suit you best – and we are open to discussing exactly that.

As a consequence of our business ownership experience, and having successfully grown iconic national brands (PC Direct and Hirepool), we now want to share this experience as a partner / advisor to you, the business owner, with the vision and courage to break through the SME barrier and create a national or international organisation.

Hunter Powell Investment Partners operates on a people centric set of Values and Beliefs developed from our front line experience as business owners. We are active managers in all our investments as we believe that engaged leadership drives value creation.

Our Vision

To provide SME owners and not-for-profit organizations with practical advice and workable strategies that will accelerate the growth, profitability, and value of your business thereby enabling job, education and wealth creation that will ultimately enhance economic development in New Zealand.
