With my wife Rae, we have owned and operated our own dealerships, Bower Honda (motorcycles) in Nelson and Colin Bower Cars (Kia and Daihatsu) on Auckland's North Shore. I have also had considerable experience managing businesses including ten years as branch manager of Kirk Motors North Shore and helped set up Kia Motors NZ dealer network as National Sales and Marketing Manager.
Since moving to the Bay of Plenty, we have specialised in finance and insurance, establishing 'Colin Bower Finance & Lease' in 2007.
We branched into personal and business risk insurance in 2009 so we could advise our valued clients on how to protect their families and businesses from financial risk. Colin is a level 5 qualified financial adviser NCFS 66081.
I have been involved in a number of sports including around twenty years racing motorcycles, cars and jet skis and have plenty of scars to prove it. We lead a more relaxed life now in the beautiful Bay of Plenty but still follow motorsports and rugby and play a little golf.
