4Sight Acquires KTB Planning Consultants

KTB Team.jpg

It is with great pleasure that we announce 4Sight Consulting has acquired KTB Planning Consultants as of 1 August 2019.

When we were approached by KTB - a planning consultancy based in Cambridge, New Zealand, we leapt at the chance, much like we did with the acquisition of Burton Planning Consultants in September of last year.

But naturally, we don’t make these decisions lightly. KTB Directors, Karl Baldwin and Katherine Davies, have established a top-quality planning consultancy servicing the Waikato region and beyond. They’re a company that prides themselves on sticking to their principles, having an inclusive culture where staff feel valued, and making sure their clients feel like they’re number one.

The KTB team will now join forces with our two Waikato based Ecologists - Hannah and Pete (with a third to join shortly) and will continue to be based in the current KTB Cambridge office. As for KTB’s directors, Karl and Katherine, they too have exciting times ahead, having recently moved and set up a new home in Gisborne.

Karl will be joining 4Sight as a Regional Manager and Principal Planning and Policy Consultant and will be initially sharing his time between Cambridge to support the transition, and Gisborne helping strengthen our current service offering in Tairāwhiti (Gisborne Region) and Hawkes Bay.

Katherine will also be joining the 4Sight team, but in a more limited capacity to allow her more time to follow her aspirations as a Health and Wellness Coach.

We are buzzing about the synergies this acquisition will bring and in particular significantly strengthening 4Sight’s planning and policy capacity in the Waikato region, offering more support and a wider range of services to existing clients, and working towards further growing our presence in the Gisborne and Hawkes Bay regions.

In the meantime, if you would like further information on the acquisition or if you have any questions, please feel free to contact our Managing Director, Aaron Andrew, personally.

For now, Nau mai, Haere mai!, Welcome to all, from the 4Sight family (and its newest additions). Let’s continue to work together to bring about balanced outcomes and the best solutions for land, people, and water.
