Changes at CMK

28 August, 2020

Another month has gone by and just like that the whole of NZ is finding out that change is a constant. Along with this, some 12 years after selling Capper Macdonald & King Ltd, Barry King has announced that he will be retiring from CMK. We will be losing not only a long-standing colleague, but a friend as well. Barry started Capper MacDonald & King Ltd back in 1984 and has seen the company go from strength to strength.

We have appreciated the support provided by Barry as part of the company over the last 12 years. Barry has stimulated our positive corporate culture and the opportunities for growth and advancement amongst the team and the business as a whole.

With this in mind, Barry’s last day will be Wednesday 30th September 2020.

We wish Barry all the best for his retirement and what the future has in store for him and his family.
