The Proactive Build Team

Proactive Build Team - Mike Gregory - Director

Mike Gregory Director

Mike has over 25 years of building experience, from high-end homes in Hawke's Bay and Queenstown to multi-million-pound luxury homes in London, largely situated in Chelsea and Fulham.

Working in London for 10 years leading significant build projects, Mike obtained a lot of valuable and unique skills. His most valued skill is his ability to successfully project manage large jobs, to bring them in on time to an exceptionally high standard.

After moving back to New Zealand with a young family and settling in Napier, Mike started as a Foreman for a Hawkes Bay building company. This role involved running a number of new build projects in Hawkes Bay for two years before setting up Proactive Build in 2018.

Mike is a registered Master Builder and has sat on the Hawke's Bay Master Builders Executive Committee for the last 2 years.
