Steve Alexander
 Director & Founder

Steve founded Alexander & Co. Ltd in 2000 to tackle the New Zealand building industry's weathertightness problems. During his work in construction, Steve saw the standard of workmanship and knowledge drop, while legal disputes increased. Instead of leaving, he wanted to fix the problem. With Alexander & Co,. he pioneered a profession so new to the country that staff had to be sourced from the United Kingdom. An accredited advisor with a diploma in Dispute Resolution, Steve continues to seek cutting-edge thinking by attending regular international conferences. Steve's career is underpinned by his desire for change, working to transform the industry so that structures are built to last.
