Our Team

The Waterware team work to live, not the other way around. But we work hard when it counts and remain conscious of the families whom are reliant on our company remaining prosperous and healthy

Adam Yearsley

Director

The middle child in the Yearsley clan, Adam has been with the company since it began in 1989. A jack of all trades, Adam steers the Marketing effort and gets involved in virtually every other aspect of the business (but secretly would rather be hanging out in the Coromandel bush.)

LISA SCHOLTENS

Director

Now a Scholtens but always a Yearsley, Lisa brings balance and the missing 3rd dimension to the boardroom table, along with spectacular chocolate afghans. Lisa is multi-talented and capable of just about anything from Sales Support to Product Development.

Darren Yearsley

Director

Darren is the technical genius behind many of our specialist products with a special focus on Central Heating and the weekend. Darren's analytical brain and practical ability has been instrumental in the development of just about every technical product we sell.

Jerry Croxford

General Manager

What Jerry doesn't know about the company's inner workings isn't worth knowing - he is the biggest cog in Waterware's engine. Jerry reports directly to the Board of Directors and is our most senior and trusted manager.

Steven Dumper

Supply Chain Manager

Also affectionately known as Twinkle Toes, Steven is all about the spreadsheet life. We sometimes wonder if he invented Excel. Never has anyone looked so graceful while streamlining a business.

Joff Croxford

Inventory Manager

Joff should have been an artist but luckily he works for us. Joff knows where it comes from, when it's coming, where it's going and what's for lunch. He communicates with numerous international suppliers and oversees the management of our warehouse and the thousands of part numbers we stack in it.

David Ronayne

South Island Business Development Manager

David is our Number 1 'South Island Intelligence Agent'. Years of working in the shady world of the plumbing industry means David is well connected and well respected by us and his peers. Although David's primary missions involve trade related plumbing and heating products, he is equally knowledgeable when it comes to front of wall if you need any intel.

Margaret Jane 'MJ'

North Island Business Development Manager

MJ joined us in 2018 and ever since she's been hustling in the new business and doing a mighty fine job of it. Lover of travel and the great outdoors, she's also a keen fisherman.

Kevin Palmer

Upper North Island Technical Sales Manager

Nobody tells a better story than KP and he has plenty to tell. Possesses a unique gene that prevents his body from aging so wouldn't recommend any kind of physical contest with him. Having trade experience himself, he knows what it's like working on a building site and what makes our trade customers tick.

Tony Burton

Central North Island Technical Sales Manager

Tony completely sucked us in on the first interview with that smile, but not realising he has a passion for small firearms. Tony comes packing some serious industry experience so we feel lucky to have him cruising the super competitive upper Central North Island region in Waterware colours.

Rachael Evans

Lower North Island FOW Territory Manager

When we set out to find someone tough enough for the Lower North Island front of wall sales territory, we were lucky to have found a top gun in local talent. We know from Rachael's previous experience rejuvenating the Home Ideas Centre that toughness wasn't a problem and her desire to succeed would be more than a match for the challenges ahead.

Shane Ebrey

Technical Product Specialist

The only actual 'Iron Man' on our team, Shane does a power of work and is often the last to leave the building. A wealth of knowledge, he is a walking part number catalogue and a phenomenal copywriter. Shane has an unfortunate knack for receiving annoying calls at lunchtime but luckily he is also extremely patient.

Lewis Hughes

TECHNICAL PRODUCT SPECIALIST

We think it's a good strategy to employ the millennial generation because their mortgages will be so huge they will be encouraged to work long and hard. Lewis is living up to this expectation and packs a physics and chemistry degree which has lifted the average intelligence of our tech team while baffling us daily with completely useless facts and figures.

Ross Colebourne

Tech Team Support

Ross joined us mid 2017, seamlessly settling in and proving himself to be a hard working valuable member of the technical team. But make no mistake, Ross is always up for a good story and a handle of mead, so his laid back and relaxed nature helps to balance out the office personalities.

Troy File

South Island Area Manager

Ben Croxford

Art Director

Multi-talented in the arts and the go-to guy for new movie and TV show reviews, we figured he deserved nothing less than 'Director' in his title. Forever impressing the team with his creative skills, Ben will keep the Waterware brand fresh and innovative. He's one of three Croxford siblings at Waterware, and often gets confused with his twin brother, Jerry...

Danielle Ware

Marketing Executive Assistant

We promise we didn't just hire her for her surname! Danielle is a fast learner and quickly established herself as an indispensable asset within our team when she came on board originally as Office Assistant. Now running the Marketing front alongside Ben, this dynamic duo can tackle any job.

Betty Taituave

Accounting Technician

Our office angel, we sometimes wonder if Betty has wings and a halo. Always pleasant, always helpful - we all want to be more like Betty. Impossible to unsettle so don't even try.

Janelle Matthews

Office Support and Administration

There are many moving parts in our admin machine and Janelle plays a big part in making it run like clockwork. Janelle is sweet-natured and owns probably the most amount of pink clothing we ever did see.

Dianne Jonsson

Sales Support Co-Ordinator

Dianne started with us in 2017 to help out while Betty was on maternity leave, but now Betty's back on board we just can't seem to let Dianne go! Recently joining us as a permanent staff member and now our Sales Support Co-Ordinator, we can't imagine life without her.

Meagan Sevenster

Customer Service & Sales Support

If you've called our office lately and had a welcoming young voice on the phone (and perhaps even heard her infamous giggle), then no doubt you've spoken to Meagan. Always happy and cheerful, she is the definition of customer service with a smile.

Sau Nua

Warehouse Manager

Sau had considered a career change once but we weren't having a bar of it. He looks pretty scary but then he smiles. Sau runs our warehouse like a well-oiled machine which never falters. Sau and his team work hard to guarantee a speedy despatch of your orders every day.

The Warehouse Team

We pride ourselves on recruiting a solid team of hard workers in our warehouse, and we're chuffed with this tight-nit team. This group of boys are always helpful and friendly.
