James Phelan

Business Development & Marketing Manager

About James

With an extensive background in advertising and marketing consultancy, James brings Goodwins a wealth of knowledge that not only supports our companies objectives, but also help our clients to achieve the best possible results.

Prior to his joining our team, James spent a number of years working in the fast-paced world of advertising in both London and Melbourne where he helped build / worked on some well-known brands including Gordon Ramsay Group, Sanctuary Cove, Australand Property (now Frasers), British Pharmalogical Society among others.

Upon his return home to New Zealand, James set up his own advertising agency which saw him provide a range of services for a variety of clients, Goodwins included.
As part of that work, he was responsible for the creation and delivery of our new-look brand and marketing platform, including this very website.

The passion he developed for that work, coupled with a desire to specialise in property and to be on the front line helping clients, made it an easy decision for James to transition into a full-time sales & marketing role with Goodwins.

And when he’s not at work? You will likely find James out on a golf course trying to improve his handicap.

What my clients say

I've found James Phelan extremely professional and knowledgeable - most importantly he was the most sincere managing agent I interviewed. Working with James the past month has given me confidence, and I knew he would give me the result of an excellent tenant. And did. He knows the market and doesn't give up! Most importantly - HE LISTENS.
