FYI: I haven’t updated this page for quite a while! A lot has happened since this was written in 2009!
Having lived in Auckland, Leeds UK, Luton UK and Auckland again before I turned seven, I then (along with my family!) stayed in one place – Balcultha – until I left home for the University of Auckland to study Architecture in 1994.
As an architectural graduate in 1997 you’ll see I started work with Cadimage Solutions and have never left but rather bought the company.
In 2007, a few months after purchasing Cadimage Solutions I undertook a major reorganisation that saw Cadimage Solutions become our Group Holding Company and established:
- Graphisoft New Zealand
- Cadimage Tools
As 100% owned subsidaries.
Graphisoft New Zealand is our New Zealand focused business selling and supporting ArchiCAD. Cadimage Tools and ARCHICADselect.com are both export-driven growth companies.
I am passionate about architecture, technology and business. The following is a snippet from a recent award nomination that better describes some of my passions and skills:
Campbell is passionately driven to succeed in all that he does and has a natural ability to see the big picture and to align his decision making with business objectives.
He is a smart and creative thinker constantly on the hunt for better ideas and ways of doing things. He will work relentlessly to achieve goals and is comfortable taking calculated risks.
Above all he is passionate about customers and using technology innovatively to service them.
Customer feedback drives him to create new revenue streams and better ways of growing the business and he is flexible and adaptable to the ever changing world business environment.
He understands the strengths and weaknesses of the team members and manages the team to build on their strengths.
He also uses team feedback to help drive effective changes for the business.
He is a high integrity fair leader who always sees the possibilities for the business regardless of obstacles .

A little strange is that I am still in my first job out of University. I guess it is really in the same company as outlined below you will see I have held a variety of positions.
The following table outlines my roles during my time with Cadimage Solutions Limited:
This project took ArchiCAD and customized it to the needs of Lockwood Homes. We used two Contract Software Developers and I managed the complete specification, training and implementation along with managing the actual software development.Also worked with Lockwood Homes to successfully secure 50% government funding.
