Building Manager/Team Leader

"I have worked in retail management, shop fitting and corporate account management before running my own successful landscaping/maintenance company in Auckland.  Building/Facility Management to me is a perfect marriage of all my skills learnt from my past roles. You could be sweeping the carpark one day and managing a project worth thousands of dollars the next.  No 2 days are the same which excites me.  Active is a good fit for me because of the vast and varied knowledge within the team.  We have a great mix of backgrounds and knowledge within the team that compliment each other, which only makes the team stronger as a whole."

Building Manager

"I joined the  Active Building Management team having come from a customer focused team and solution oriented environment including sales roles in safety products ,hardware and real estate with a generous stint in logistics  which gave me variety and knowledge in many industries across the board. 
I enjoy Building and Facilities management as it is a constant challenge with no two days being the same, variety being the spice of life, this role definitely epitomizes this. Its great to know that you have made a difference or helped a resident in strife and in general maintained the building to a high degree so everyone is happy. My strive for excellence in this capacity has seen me find a niche within Active and its portfolio of substantial buildings in and around the Auckland region.
The company itself  has a great team of dedicated, extremely knowledgeable and helpful people with in the industry which is very handy when it comes to troubleshooting or just fine tuning the dynamics and functionality of buildings and how they run.  With just a phone call any issue is easily resolved.
Its definitely a happy team culture and this makes being part of Active so enjoyable."
