Michael Friedlander

Boasting of a net worth of $774 million, Michael Friedlander is a native to the Auckland area. He has been listed on many of New Zealand's property and rich lists since 1986. This is due primarily to two different investment vehicles that he uses. Friedlander is involved with Sterling Nominees and Samson Corporation. In addition, he has real estate property holdings throughout Auckland.

The Friedlander empire first began to grow with Michael Friedlander. Over the years, his sons Jason and Daniel have been adopting a larger role in the family business. The family is extremely secretive and likes to keep their privacy protected. Despite Michael Friedlander's increasing age, he remains involved in the daily running of the business. The most recent project adopted by Samson Corporation was the creation of the Geyser Building in Auckland.

This office building is the area's first building to receive six green star certifications for its environmentally sustainable design. To become sustainable, Samson designed the Geyser building with solar panels, natural light and modern airflow. In addition, Friedlander has recently become involved with the Auckland Art Gallery and regularly contributes funds for the arts. Following the death of his wife, Michael also created a residency in her name for an artist to go to New York City.
