Bachelor of Management Studies (Economics, Geography)
Waikato Management School
Nigel came from an economics background and has always had an interest in computers – particularly coding and web development.
He completed a Bachelor of Management Studies with First Class Honours in 2008, majoring in Economics and a minor in Geography/GIS.
Soon after he joined Wellington-based firm Infometrics as an economist, having previously worked as a statistical analyst for Statistics New Zealand, and as a GIS data analyst for WEL Networks.
Infometrics was founded in 1983 by Gareth Morgan and Andrew Gawith and is one of New Zealand’s leading economic consultancy and forecasting businesses.
Eight years later, Nigel has risen to become one of the directors of the company, since July 2016. His main role at Infometrics is to develop new and innovative ways to deliver knowledge-based products to clients.
Nigel lives in Te Awamutu on a lifestyle block, which keeps him busy outside of work.
