After a successful career in NZ Customs, I jumped into small business which provided the opportunity to travel and gain some off shore experience within International Sales & Marketing, Project Management roles within the World of filtration before heading home.
With over 25 years’ experience within Industrial Filtration and developing the CFS brand into what it stands for today.
IQP disciplined and conscious of what it takes to run and own a compliant business, no one is more passionate to lead by example and driven to raising the standard of filtration for our clients.
With a keen interest in family, all sports and the outdoors, life is pretty good!
I worked as a Customs Officer in a variety of areas, Airport, Investigations & Prosecutions. Customs gave me a good grounding for the start to my working life and a variety of skills which I still utilise today.
I started at Canterbury Filter Services in 2000 behind the sewing machine and learnt about the business from the ground up. I now hold the position of Operations Manager and help to keep everything running smoothly.
My new found passion is Golf and I am keen to play whenever I can. Other interests include Walking, Natural Medicine, Cooking and Travelling.
I have spent alot of time in the Manufacturing Industry, and previous to joining the team at Canterbury Filter Services, I was in the Construction Industry. I look forward to helping our Customers and going the extra mile for them when I can.
I love to spend my spare time taking Photographs, Painting with acrylics, and catching up with my friends.
Having grown up with Filtration as a family business I am by no means new to the industry. Before starting full time employment with CFS back in early 2011 I was in the Royal New Zealand Air Force. After serving some time with the NZDF I packed up and moved back to Christchurch to become part of the CFS team. My role as Service Coordinator is fantastic as I not only get to continue the ‘Hands on’ aspect of the job but I get to deal with a wide variety of clients from the dairy industry through to the automotive trade.
I have a great deal of passion for golf and cricket so if I’m not at work I will be on the oval or course.
Joining the CFS team in early 2014 after my previous job has been a great change. I enjoy the physical side of the job as it keeps me fit and healthy.
I have a passion for all sport and enjoy getting stuck into any type. Cricket is my main sport and I enjoy getting out in the field when summer rolls around.
Joined the team at the beginning of 2013 and I am even more excited today about the ethics and aspirations of CFS.
I have a diverse working background comprising years spent as a Naval Officer, in senior management roles for several large Insurance, Investment and Banking organisations. My role in CFS is wide ranging and whether it is customer interaction, physical service work on demanding sites or project work, it is rewarding.
In my spare time I enjoy getting to know Canterbury and the beauty on offer in the wider South Island. Having been a sports fanatic all my life the opportunity to play regular golf again has been the “Icing on the Cake”.
