What is the most interesting move you have done at Kiwi Movers? Moved the CEO of one of the largest English Premier League clubs, really nice guy and shared some really interesting information about the Premiership etc. Great for me as I’m football mad.
Interesting Fact About Yourself? I’d only been outside of New Zealand once before me and my wife decided to move to London at the age of 26.
In 5 years time where do you see yourself? In a mirror.Favourite Office person and why? Gibbo, loves details!
What do you enjoy most about working for Kiwi Movers? Getting to work with a great bunch of guys who make each day interesting with all the hilarious banter that gets thrown around.
Best place you’ve travelled to so far in Europe? Croatia, sailed the islands from Split-Dubrovnik, stunning beaches, scenery and getting to jump off the yacht into the ocean for a swim every morning was amazing.
Any advice to the new guys? Watch and learn and don’t get upset if one of the senior staff members ask you to do something! You’ll get your turn to boss other people around if you hang around for long enough! Above all use common sense!
Famous last words? Theodore Roosevelt quote, a favourite of mine.
“It is not the critic who counts; not the man who points out how the strong man stumbles, or where the doer of deeds could have done them better. The credit belongs to the man who is actually in the arena, whose face is marred by dust and sweat and blood; who strives valiantly; who errs, who comes short again and again, because there is no effort without error and shortcoming; but who does actually strive to do the deeds; who knows great enthusiasms, the great devotions; who spends himself in a worthy cause; who at the best knows in the end the triumph of high achievement, and who at the worst, if he fails, at least fails while daring greatly, so that his place shall never be with those cold and timid souls who neither know victory nor defeat.”
