Steve, a South Islander born in Temuka, brings to Aotearoa Fisheries over 20 years experience in the seafood business plus five years with the Port of Wellington. He previously worked at Deep Cove Fisheries, which later became part of the Talleys Group.
One of the attractions of Aotearoa Fisheries was the chance to work under a different model – a 100% Maori owned company. Married to Kim and father to three children, Steve feels he’s in the right niche – working in a company that is striving to be here for future generations.
I whānau a Steve i Te Umu Kaha (Temuka) i te Moana Pounamu, ā, e 20 tau tana roa i te ūmanga kaimoana, e rima tau tana roa e mahi ana i te taha o Te Whanganui a Tara/ Port Wellington. I mua atu, i mahi ia i Deep Cove Fisheries, i whakakaongia rā ki roto o te Talleys Group.
Ko tētehi o wō Aotearoa Fisheries painga ko te whai wāhi ki te mahi i raro i tētehi tauira kē – 100% nā te Māori. E mārena ana a Steve ki a Kim, ā, tokotoru āna tamariki. E whakapae ana a Steve kei te whaitua tōtika ia – e mahi ana i roto i te kamupene e tohe ana kia toitū mō ngā whakatupuranga e haere ake nei.
