I'm the Operations Manager for Testing New Zealand and am based in Tauranga.  I'm responsible for a team of highly experienced technicians who deliver testing services across Auckland, Tauranga and Christchurch.  I have 29 years’ experience in providing testing services to the property and transport infrastructure industry.

I've been fortunate enough to have worked in Europe, Asia and Australasia and be involved in some large scale infrastructure projects. Projects that I have worked on include Hong Kong’s new airport, Gibraltar’s airfield upgrade, Birmingham (UK) airport upgrade, SH20 Mount Roskill’s new motorway, Northern Gateway Tunnel, Hobsonville SH16/18 motorway, SH16 Causeway upgrade,  Auckland's SH16 upgrade from Saint Luke's to Lincoln Road, Southern Corridor Upgrade and Bayfair to Baypark upgrade. I've spent the last fourteen years in New Zealand, of which the last six have been with Coffey.

During my six years with Coffey I’ve had the pleasure of working with some great people in the business. I chose to join Coffey because they're one of the leading geotechnical companies in Australia and New Zealand and I wanted to extend my knowledge in geotechnical investigations. I’m proud to work for Coffey because we find smarter solutions for our clients and keep safety as our main focus.
