The concept of BNI (Business Network International) is very popular in Kāpiti with two well established chapters and another recent addition.
Glen Mattingley, business owner of New Zealand Home Loans (NZHL) Paraparaumu has just picked up another significant award, this being the 5th time NZHL Paraparaumu has scooped the Top Branch of the Year Award.
Mr Mattingley says he acknowledges the value BNI has brought to the business and particularly thanked the Gold Coast chapter for their continued support and encouragement.
He says the business is based in Kāpiti but NZHL Paraparaumu works with clients throughout the region. NZHL is a franchise company owned by Kiwi Group Holdings (who also own Kiwibank), with 79 franchises nationwide.
Mr Mattingley says a big part of the success is down to his four years in BNI Gold Coast. He says its not just the referrals received but also the support of his fellow members and the discipline BNI has provided. He says the core BNI philosophy of Givers Gain has worked for his business.
