Our Story

It all started like any good joke: “An Irishman and a Kiwi walked into a bar ...” The bar was Kitty O’Brian’s Irish Pub by Victoria Park in Auckland - sadly long gone. The two blokes were Joe Griffin and John Latimer. The drink was Guinness. The year was 1995. The conversation turned to business opportunities in leisure facility management. The rest is history...

25 years later, the company they started, CLM, is New Zealand's leading contractor in community facility and programme management. We are dedicated to providing opportunities for people in many communities to put "leisure in their lives, and life in their leisure". CLM is committed to delivering professional standards through the good work of its great team and leading the way to more active, healthy and happier communities.
