GM & Director
Dean, the founding member of Skilled Electrical, is pretty passionate about the electrical industry and business in general. “I have for a long time been interested in business and its impact on the people that come into contact with it.”
“Skilled Electrical is more to me than just an income stream, it's about seeing a group of people with a common goal come together to make some good things happen... that is genuinely what drives me day by day. We spend almost half of our waking lives working in a business, so to me it better be an enriching, fun and worthwhile experience for everyone who is part of it.”
That goes for our staff, clients, suppliers, sub-contractors, our service providers, and of course our customers. His goal is to enjoy life while looking to continually improve, both in his personal and professional life. Outside of the business Dean has 3 teenage children and his beautiful wife of 20 years, Kylie.
He enjoys a bit of surfing (reasonably badly); Brazilian jujitsu (of which he intends to make a comeback in soon!); working out in our fully equipped in house gym to keep fit and healthy; travel when he can get the chance; watching mixed martial arts, reading and self development, a bit of gaming to zone out for a while when time allows.
Janine is an incredibly vital employee. Her past experience in the administration field is wide ranging and diverse and she is invaluable to us at Skilled Electrical. Her level or organisation and efficiency is impressive and her job is to ensure the back office systems and processes are working, consistent and in place.
She recently emigrated from South Africa and lives with her partner, has 2 lovely daughters.
Brad is a wee bit awesome, he manages our servicing and the bulk of our residential electrical projects. His forte is in the high-end residential field. He’s a very hard man to fluster, (we know because we have tried), and his attention to detail is second to none.
He enjoys a good game of cricket, the vege garden and spending time with his partner and new born baby!
Ray has had an extensive history within the electrical industry and is considered one one of the premier installers/technicians of domestic and small commercial air conditioning systems in Canterbury. He is in charge of running the sales and installation of Skilled Electricals HVAC and Solar projects. With his many years experience and having run his own company in the past he is a valuable member of our team, providing our clients with excellent customer service, our electricians with training and knowledge, and by ensuring the quality of our workmanship is always up to scratch.
Lea is our first "tradesman" to have a baby and is current on temporary maternity leave.... so watch this space for she will likely be called upon to aid us with our estimating and scoping of projects and upcoming jobs. She has brought with her a plethora of electrical knowledge and skills and is a specialist aircon installer. Lea loves getting stuck in to every task that comes her way with a problem solving attitude.
