Our People

David Levene

David was knighted in 2010 for services to business and the community, was awarded an OBE in 1995, received an honorary doctorate in Literature from Massey University, an honorary doctorate in Laws from Auckland University and has been inducted into the North Shore, Manukau and New Zealand Business Halls of Fame.
