Northland Facilitator Warwick Taylor

The Business Coach & Facilitator for Northland


Having lived in Northland all his life, Warwick has an innate understanding of the local community and its culture and believes that owners of privately held businesses hold the key to local and regional community success. Following a strong engagement in the Northland business community as an accredited Business Mentor with the Chamber of Commerce, Warwick is looking forward to offering a higher level of service to SME owners through The Alternative Board.

Warwick has over 30 years of high-level business experience including 20 years owning his own award-winning company reaching annual revenues of over $10 million, and 10 years employed in senior management roles for leading national firms operating in Northland.

As its Managing Director, Warwick led Waste Works Limited to become one of the most progressive and innovative companies in the Waste Management sector, providing a pioneering range of services to businesses and domestic households across Northland.

Successfully selling the company in 2009, Warwick’s passion for rugby saw him join the Northland Rugby Union (NRU) where he was responsible for the commercial and marketing performance. Beginning with an underperforming portfolio, he quickly set to work creating a new union brand, logo and product line, sponsorship packages and out-the-gate events, all of which resulted in the NRU substantially strengthening its
financial position.

Broadening his career, Warwick became Northland Regional Manager for Armourguard, New Zealand’s largest security firm. Achieving growth of 129% and being acknowledged as one of the top-performing New Zealand regional businesses, Warwick enhanced his reputation as a talented, innovative business leader.

Warwick’s other achievements include finalist in the Ernst and Young  entrepreneur of the year, winner of the Westpac Northland Business Excellence Award for Excellence in Technology / Innovation, and Runner up of the Westpac Northland Business Excellence Award for Excellence in Service.

Outside of work, Warwick has a passion for sports. His favourites are playing golf, fishing, watching rugby and speedway. Warwick and partner Leeann, own and operate a successful boutique accommodation business on the Whangarei Harbour where they enjoy hosting travellers from all over New Zealand and the world
