Staff Updates

Chai Sha Liew receiving her celebratory cake and some flowers

The biggest news is the achievement of our Financial Controller ( Chai Sha Liew) of 20 years service with us. Chai Sha is a vital part of our team and we would be lost without her. Chai Sha’s team of Fitu, Raewyn, Shefali and now Abigail has been strengthened to allow us to cope with the extra volumes of work we are facing with growth. Abigail a new member to the team is looking after Creditors and we are very pleased to have her join us. In the past few weeks Shefali graduated with her B.Comm and is learning the ropes in Accounting and Admin.

Carterton – our team capably led by Shane Wilson is doing a great job. At Carterton we are drying all our Cedar and Jarrah and as well some Rimu and odds and sods. The guys are kept pretty busy producing the goods as well as servicing orders for most of our Cedar, Radiata, Jarrah, Kwila, Malaysian Kauri, Truck decking to mention a few.

Christchurch we are pleased to welcome a new member to replace the departing Jack James. Sad to lose Jack. Our new team member is Jacob Cannell. The guys have been flat out preparing for the move and then moving as well as being busy selling. Stephen Norris has been off on a 3 day David Forman training course in mid Oct and James Chen is off on a well deserved holiday to visit his folks. Stretch helped out moving the stock and did a great job.

In Auckland we are settling in some new staff as well. Anna Ulyanova has been with us 10 weeks and is under a training programme to learn about the business we are in,. Anna is working in our sales office now and we aim to have her up working there. Paul Greenhalgh has moved from being otut on the road targeting Builders to being a sales office focus, together with some responsibility for looking after Masterspec and CertClad enquiries. James Temple recently joined us and is working with Simon and his team in the warehouse. Abigail as we mentioned above has joined Chai Sha’s team as our creditors Clerk and is settling in well.
