ABOUT US


The Delta Management group is made up of four shareholders led by Adam Fairmaid, one of the original developers of the land. Warren Bates, Wayne Oxenham and Scott Murray have joined him to complete the subdivision.

The main focus of the group has been to ensure the remaining development completely satisfies all resource consent requirements. The group has overseen the completion of the development and has also enhanced the subdivision through significant additional landscaping work.

All four shareholders are passionate about Fiordland and spend many hours of their time with their families enjoying what Te Anau and the surrounding area has to offer.

Adam Fairmaid

Adam is a forty seven year old company director with an interest in the outdoors. After initially doing a BSc in Psychology at Otago University he went on to complete a Bachelor of Optometry at Auckland University in 1992.

From 2001 he has been involved in property development with several successful medium size projects completed. He became a foundation investor in Mount Cook Alpine Salmon and co-director of the GODZone Adventure Race, the New Zealand leg of the World Series.

Adam is a devoted hunter with much of his spare time spent exploring Fiordland National Park or the hills of Otago and Southland. Being a shareholder in a crib in Martins Bay means the area is a second home. He has completed a Grand Traverse of Mount Cook and is also a keen surfer and diver. He is married to Sarah Clark, who is also a keen adventure racer, and they have two children, Liv and Boh.

 Warren Bates

Warren graduated from University College London with a first class honours degree in Geology. The next 15 years were spent in investment banking in London, the majority of which involved managing a junk bond fund.

He was introduced to adventure racing back in 1999, is currently racing for Team Adidas TERREX, and won the Adventure Racing World Championships in 2009. His passion for adventure racing now encompasses both competing and organising and, in association with Adam, directs the GODZone Adventure Race, the New Zealand leg of the World Series.
