KPI Rothschild


Position: Director


Dean Marshall


Dean was born in Christchurch and apart from some early years in England has been Christchurch-based. His first job was working at the Government Regional Engineer’s office before heading off to London at age 18. Within a year of living in London he had successfully set up his own business, employing a team of 15 people. 

On his return to Christchurch, Dean followed in the footsteps of his grandfather and father (family firm est. 1923) and became a real estate agent. Dedication and hard work resulted in Dean becoming one of New Zealand’s top selling agents. He purchased his first residential investment property at 21. This was the start of his successful residential and later commercial property portfolio.

Dean later bought into one of Christchurch’s oldest established real estate firms (est. 1898) and when his son joined the firm, it resulted in a fourth generation real estate agent in the Marshall family. During this time Dean also set up a property investment company with his childhood friend Shaun and his brother Grant. Dean is a director and shareholder of KPI Rothschild and a number of other companies.

He is passionate about the Christchurch recovery and co-founded C.O.R.E, an organisation set up to represent 200 property owners’ interests and assist with the rebuild of the city.

Dean has over 30 years experience as a property investor in New Zealand and Australia. He is an Associate of the Real Estate Institute of NZ (AREINZ), a member of the NZ Property Council, the NZ Institute of Directors and the Real Estate Institute where he has served on the local Institute Committee. He is also a member of the Christchurch Canterbury Club.

Dean and his wife Andrea are members of Christchurch City Elim Church. They have four children and two grandchildren. Together they support local and international charities. Having spent time in Africa and volunteering for many mission-based African projects, they have a heart for the underprivileged and underdeveloped nations.
