Ryan has great personal skills and goes the extra mile for his clients. I recommend Ryan for his work assisting Trillium Property Management Ltd with the implementation and negotiation of service contracts, compliance audits and facilities management consultancy. Ryan's experience in this area and Facilities and Contract Management in general is excellent.

Anna Smith - Director Trillium Property Management Ltd

Knowledgeable, technically aware, unassuming, friendly, decisive and utterly professional – that’s how I would describe Ryan. He’s one of a rare breed and an asset to any organisation

Richard McKenzie-Browne –Technical Director FM AECOM

I’ve had the pleasure in both working with Ryan Peni during his time as a National Contracts Manager with our Broadspectrum business, and later as a Consultant in support of my business requirements following his decision to leave and start Niche FM Consulting Ltd.  During his time with Broadspectrum Ryan was pivotal in growing our FM business, and his strong interpersonal skills were an enabler in maintaining key customer relationships.  When Ryan left to start Niche FM he was the first person I called when we required specialist support for an RFT.  Since his engagement he has been responsive to our needs and the stringent timelines imposed and more importantly, he has provided specialist guidance and input into our RFT solution. His knowledge of the NZ FM market is without peer and his superior people skills makes it a pleasure to have him part of our FM bid team. I have no hesitation in recommending his services to any organisation requiring first class FM support!
