Neal Manson

Regional Building Manager, New Zealand,
Neal Manson

Neal Manson is the Regional Building Manager, South Island for Pattersons Insurerbuild in New Zealand and is a government licensed Building Practitioner.

After obtaining a certificate in Carpentry and Advanced Trade, Neal took on a role as a site supervisor with Mansons Builders Ltd where he worked for several years. In 1986 he gave up his tools to join the New Zealand Police Force for the next ten years, gaining a wealth of experience in management and the ability to work well under pressure. During that time he studied Senior Management and Law at the New Zealand Police College.

In 1998 he felt compelled to return to the building industry and secured a job as a Project Manager with Ahead Buildings Ltd before joining the Pattersons Insurerbuild team in 2010.

Neal is a very experienced and accomplished manager with excellent skills in quantity surveying, multi-tasking and a vast knowledge of the local building industry and its standards and codes. In his current role he has been heavily involved in the rebuilding process following the 2011 earthquakes in Christchurch.

When he’s not on the job, he can be found working as a volunteer for the New Zealand Civil Defence Force – a role that allowed him to assist with rescue efforts during the earthquake crisis.
