Kenyon is passionate about regeneration, halting urban sprawl and protecting Auckland’s greenbelt, beaches and wild places. He is a sought after commentator and public speaker with a broad base of knowledge accumulated over a 24 year career which saw him lose $120m in 2008 and recover to build Du Val into a $750m business in 2019. He is often asked to speak about his personal journey in business and enjoys discussing topics including entrepreneurship, all aspects of property investment and development, the emergence of build-to-rent and buy-to-let sectors in New Zealand, sustainability, urban regeneration, the construction market and personal finance.
His mission is to build 1,000 apartments and houses each year and over the next decade to establish a $5b build-to-rent portfolio.
Many New Zealand business people are reluctant to showcase what success looks like from fear of being judged and chopped down like tall-poppies. Kenyon believes that it is time to change this and demonstrate to a whole new generation of young entrepreneurs just what is possible if you’re authentic, customer focused and prepared to work.
He is supported by a team of equally passionate people at Du Val who are committed to helping people improve their financial literacy and create financial resilience through property.
Kenyon is currently experimenting with social media after being accused of being a dinosaur by his children. He is committed to merging digital and real world platforms to teach financial literacy and help people learn how to build wealth through property. You can find Kenyon on LinkedIn, Instagram and follow the KCTV YouTube channel and Podcast produced from the Du Val studio each week.

Kenyon is working on his YouTube channel KCTV and Podcast providing a rare insight into what it takes to build a billion dollar business. He is also working on a number of books and has decided to trim this down to one as there is a risk none of them will ever get finished.
Kenyon is a Trustee of the Du Val Foundation a registered charity founded by the Clarke family to enhance the well being of children, especially in South Auckland and address mental illness within the construction sector.
