Mike Casey

Director of Kingstons

Director of Kingstons

I have been a quantity surveyor all my working life. When I was young I had an interest in the construction industry as well as accounting and law so quantity surveying seemed to encompass all of those interests for me. I love the building and construction finance industry and its colourful characters.

Every project has its issues and we learn from each challenging experience. Terminations and receiverships offer some interesting situations and we have gained extensive knowledge and experience in both, with lessons learned proving invaluable when commencing new projects.

Outside of work my family are very important to me. I am married with four children, which keeps my wife and I pretty busy. Amongst my love of all sports, especially golf and fishing, I have had a long association with rugby and currently coach (as a specialist coach) at all levels of rugby from junior through to international levels.
