Geoff fulfilled his childhood dream of becoming a builder way back in the late seventies with an apprenticeship for a large architectural housing Christchurch construction company. Here he climbed the ladder quickly, taking a leading foreman’s position within four years.
In 1990 he took the plunge into self-employment forming a partnership with a building mate. Fifteen years in this partnership not only provided a good grounding for managing and administering a small business, but also cemented many long-term associations with sub-contractors and employees alike.
In February 2005, GMac Builders Ltd was established, with Geoff as Managing Director, and Lee working behind the scenes running the administration side of the business.
