Louise Sutherland

Leasing Manager

In her role as Leasing Manager, Louise combines an extensive background in Commercial Property and Asset Management with a lifelong passion for arts and creativity.

Like so many Cantabrians, Louise grew up in and around the Arts Centre so she understands how much the site, and its restoration, means to Christchurch.

Having managed commercial property in Christchurch since 2008, Louise has been working right on the frontline of the rebuild. She has a particular affinity for the management of new-builds and projects, and has overseen several key central city projects through from planning to being completely operational.

While a structure is bricks and mortar, Louise believes it’s the people who live and breathe the building, and the community around it, that gives it soul. Much of the joy that she finds in the property sector comes from the variety of people she meets every day, and the satisfaction that comes from building strong, positive relationships with clients, tenants and contractors.

Louise is thrilled to have joined the Arts Centre team and looks forward to helping deliver back to Christchurch the jewel in its cultural crown.
