Site General Manager
Matt started with The Bowater Motor group back in May 2005 as the manager of what was then our Shell Service Station in Motueka. Matt ensures that his team is very customer focused with one of his catch cries "The customers pay our wages" heard on nearly a daily basis.
All these years on Matt still enjoys the commute each day from Nelson and was very happy when the new Ruby Bay bypass went in!
In his downtime Matt enjoys running & keeping fit, and has a taste for craft beers - but not at the same time!
