About Duncan


As Chief Operating Officer (COO) for Bayley Corporation, Duncan oversees Bayleys’ wider company operational and strategic activities, monitors productivity and results, and helps facilitate the “Altogether Better” philosophy that underpins Bayleys’ business throughout New Zealand and the Pacific Islands.

Duncan is a proven member of Bayleys’ senior management team having spearheaded the rural arm of the business since 2017 as National Country Manager – a role he continues alongside his COO position. Under Duncan’s leadership, Bayleys completed rural sales in excess of $1.3 billion in the last fiscal year reinforcing the company’s position as the number one rural real estate brand in New Zealand. 

Duncan brings almost 20 years’ experience in banking, finance, professional services, business advisory, turnaround management and corporate restructuring to the Bayleys table. This industry background includes a decade spent with KordaMentha in the wider agricultural and financial sectors. 

As a chartered accountant and holding a Bachelor of Management Studies from Waikato University, Duncan’s professional affiliations include being a member of the Institute of Chartered Accountants Australia New Zealand (ICAANZ) and of Restructuring Insolvency Turnaround New Zealand (RITANZ).

A strategic thinker with astute problem-solving skills and an ability to see issues in a wider economic and business context, Duncan takes a hands-on approach to leadership in a team-driven environment where robust outcomes are expected.

As New Zealand’s largest full-service real estate agency, Bayleys continues to evolve, grow and diversify with resilience honed through almost 50 years in the industry.

Duncan’s business and interpersonal strengths are an asset to the company as a whole as it continues to thrive in a rapidly-changing business environment.
