CKL founding director Rod Keucke was selected for the Property Council's Long Service Award, recognising his outstanding contribution to the property industry.

Rod was involved in some pioneering subdivisions which generally raised the level of quality of urban development in Hamilton - including Harrowfield and Huntington.

He made substantial contributions to the local property environment, from being involved directly in numerous Hamilton and Waikato district plan reviews, through to mentoring a number of CKL employees over his 42 years in practice. Rod was very active in the professional community through participation on the executives of organisations such as NZ Institute of Surveyors, and had an instrumental part in the establishment of the Property Council Waikato branch.

We also remember Rod's late wife Barbara Keucke (Barb), who was a key support both to Rod and CKL through her role in administration.
