Aside from traveling throughout Europe and living in the UK, Stephen has lived in the Wairarapa almost all his life. He has extensive sales experience with an excellent local business presence.
Starting out as a Sales Rep for Mainland Products he shortly became a Business Consultant in Wellington with Vodafone NZ, where he moved his way up to take ownership of the Masterton Vodafone retail and business franchise. He very successfully operated and grew that business for 13 years. Significantly, it connected him to key participants in almost all Wairarapa business sectors.
He built his success on hard work and exceptional service, skills he knows are a bottom-line at Gollins Commercial.
Stephen has had five years experience on the board of the Wairarapa Chamber of Commerce and is currently the Snooker custodian and active committee member of the Masterton Club.
