the team



DLM holds a market position within Auckland as a leading mid-sized consulting company. We are large enough to have taken on major projects over long periods requiring a broad range of competencies, yet small enough to provide personalized, accountable, proactive services.


Our structure, company culture and size are key to ensuring strong relationships are formed between ourselves, consultants and key stakeholders within our client’s team.
