Managing Director/Project Co-ordinator

Although a New Zealander by nationality, Jock was born in the UK and brought up in Fort Augustus, Inverness-shire, Scotland. Jock trained as an engineer with Rolls Royce Limited in Derby, England. Married to a New Zealander, Wendy, Jock settled in Queenstown and built, owned and operated the A-Line Motor Inn until it was sold in late 1986. During his time in Queenstown Jock was very active in many other ventures, including designing and supervising the installation of the Dalefield Water scheme and involvement with a number of property developments. After moving to Auckland, Jock coordinated the design of a 10 metre Cruising/Racing yacht, the Beale 33 and established a business which set up a production factory to manufacture and market the Beale. For the last 13 years he has worked for and/or provided consulting services to a number of businesses.

Jock is a major driving force behind the Hulme Supercar project and has a seemingly limitless amount of energy to see it to a successful completion. He truly embraces Denny Hulme’s Kiwi Can Do attitude.
