Getting to Know You - Tipene Paul24 February 2017
We speak to the new branch manager Tipene, to hear about his Reece journey and why he loves his job.
Tell us about yourself and your role at Reece.
I started working at Reece in 2013 at our East Tamaki branch. I have spent four years at the same branch and have recently become the branch manager. It’s been a very enjoyable time creating friendships with a lot of workmates and meeting new customers. I’m looking forward to many more years.
Highlights of the job?
Developing relationships with our customers and co-workers. Also, watching co-workers grow and develop within the company and take the opportunity to further their career at Reece.
What is the most exciting thing about the East Tamaki store?
It’s probably the culture and environment we create at the branch. Everyone’s fun and outgoing and loves a good chat. The customers love getting involved too.
What’s the hot topic among your customers at the moment?
Our new branch opening in Penrose. It’s an exciting time for Reece NZ as we expand and continue to grow.
What are your plans for the next 12 months?
The plan for the next 12 months would be to continue to grow the branch and also as a team. We have an exciting young team of future managers here, and I’m looking forward to what the next 12 months has in store for us.
