Rob Stewart McDonald

Managing Director

I’m Rob Stewart-McDonald, Managing Director at HQ New Zealand. I first came to Queenstown masquerading as a ski bum on a ski road trip back in 1994. I instantly knew I had found the place I wanted to make my home one day.

In 2000, my wife Michelle and I quit our corporate jobs, loaded our few possessions in a car and headed south.

Creating a business where everyone looked forward to coming to work each day was the goal and what better way than helping our corporate customers find inspiration in this special part of the world that we all love.
When not building HQ I can be found skiing, golfing, mountain biking, relaxing with a glass of one of our fine local Pinots or chasing winters with our 2 competitive ski racing kids.
