Since inception, the team at Five V have been passionate about building trusted, long term partnerships with founders and managers to support business growth ambitions. We believe in power of being local while thinking global, and thus are excited to announce our new team and presence: Five V New Zealand.
Our New Zealand team is focused on deal origination, execution, and portfolio management across the local market, working closely with the broader Five V team in Australia. Five V New Zealand is led by Murray Schnuriger, and joined by Simon Kriechbaum and Harriet Lambert.
Five V founder Adrian MacKenzie stated: “Five V is fortunate to have a history of trusted, successful partnerships with incredible founders and businesses in New Zealand. We are excited to have Murray, Simon and Harriet join our team and are committed to backing more NZ businesses, supporting growth through active investment strategies and a network of relationships across the globe.”
Murray Schnuriger said: “The NZ team are super excited to join Five V Capital. We will continue the focus on investing in and supporting NZ growth businesses, but now with additional resources and support to do more. We believe a combination of on-the-ground support for management teams whilst leveraging the expertise and incredible network of the broader Five V Capital team is truly a unique proposition. Committing to the permanent team and office in NZ demonstrates a firm commitment by Five V to the NZ opportunity and the broader community. ”
We're excited to start the new financial year strong with team growth, geographic expansion and new deal activity. Our perspective is that nothing beats a good conversation and we would welcome a follow up meeting or call to talk through Five V New Zealand, investment activity and fund updates in more detail.
