Senior Deputy Vice-Chancellor Professor Alister Jones has been recognised at this year’s Waikato Property People Awards.

The awards, now in their ninth year, recognise excellence in leadership and innovation in the property industry.

Entry is open to members and non-members of Property Council New Zealand who are based in the Waikato. This year 21 nominations were received across nine categories, with more than 300 people attending the awards dinner at Wintec’s The Atrium.

Professor Jones received the CKL Property Professional of the Year Award, which was given in recognition of Professor Jones’ work on leading major property projects that have consistently supported growth and development in the region.

Some of the key projects led by Professor Jones include Te Piringa - Faculty of Law, and the Tauranga CBD campus.

He was noted by judges as "being committed to working in partnership with stakeholders and going the extra mile."

A high level of project management was required for the projects led by Professor Jones, including the ability to meet tight deadlines, solve challenges, and maintain a strong eye on current and future needs of both the Waikato and Bay of Plenty regions and their communities.

Professor Jones will continue his work leading the strategic direction for campus development across both campuses.
