Our Team

The Waterware team work to live, not the other way around. But we work hard when it counts and remain conscious of the families whom are reliant on our company remaining prosperous and healthy


Lisa Scholtens


Now a Scholtens but always a Yearsley, Lisa brings balance and the missing 3rd dimension to the boardroom table, along with spectacular chocolate afghans. Lisa is multi-talented and capable of just about anything from Sales Support to Product Development.

Darren Yearsley


Darren is the technical genius behind many of our specialist products with a special focus on Central Heating and the weekend. Darren's analytical brain and practical ability has been instrumental in the development of just about every technical product we sell.

Jerry Croxford

General Manager

What Jerry doesn't know about the company's inner workings isn't worth knowing - he is the biggest cog in Waterware's engine. Jerry reports directly to the Board of Directors and is our most senior and trusted manager.

Ben Croxford

Marketing Manger/Art Director

Multi-talented in the arts and the go-to guy for new movie and TV show reviews, we figured he deserved nothing less than 'Director' in his title. Forever impressing the team with his creative skills, Ben will keep the Waterware brand fresh and innovative. He's one of three Croxford siblings at Waterware, and often gets confused with his twin brother, Jerry...

Joff Croxford

Inventory Manager

Joff should have been an artist but luckily he works for us. Joff knows where it comes from, when it's coming, where it's going and what's for lunch. He communicates with numerous international suppliers and oversees the management of our warehouse and the thousands of part numbers we stack in it.

Rob Scholtens

Public Space & Healthcare Manager

Coming soon...

Kevin Palmer

Upper North Island Commercial Business Development Manager & Technical Sales

Nobody tells a better story than KP and he has plenty to tell. Possesses a unique gene that prevents his body from aging so wouldn't recommend any kind of physical contest with him. Having trade experience himself, he knows what it's like working on a building site and what makes our trade customers tick.

Margaret Jane 'MJ'

Upper North Island Territory Manager

MJ joined us in 2018 and ever since she's been hustling in the new business and doing a mighty fine job of it. Lover of travel and the great outdoors, she's also a keen fisherman.

Phil Maidment

Middle North Island Technical Territory Manager

Phil has had the luxury of being twice employeed by Waterware and boy are we happy to have him back. He joined Waterware way back when and brought a wealth of information learned from the very competitive plumbing and central heating markets in Blighty. Over the years, it helped hone our range by seeking out the most reliable and respected products sold in Europe. Phil is extremely passionate about boating and can often be found pondering about life on the high seas. After a couple of years hiatus, Phil has realised there is no place like home and returned as our Middle North Island Technical Territory Manager.

Rachael Evans

Lower North Island FOW Territory Manager

When we set out to find someone tough enough for the Lower North Island front of wall sales territory, we were lucky to have found a top gun in local talent. We know from Rachael's previous experience rejuvenating the Home Ideas Centre that toughness wasn't a problem and her desire to succeed would be more than a match for the challenges ahead.

David Ronayne

South Island Business Development Manager

David is our Number 1 'South Island Intelligence Agent'. Years of working in the shady world of the plumbing industry means David is well connected and well respected by us and his peers. Although David's primary missions involve trade related plumbing and heating products, he is equally knowledgeable when it comes to front of wall if you need any intel.

Troy File

South Island Area Manager

Troy took one for the team and relocated from Auckland to beautiful Queenstown to take on our South Island Area Manager role in early 2019. A keen petrol-head, what he lacks in pectorals he makes up for with his love and passion for muscle cars. Troy is an extremely likeable and down to earth guy, his voice even possesses a likeness to a seasoned radio host and to Troy, everything is 'alllllgood!'.

Lewis Hughes

Technical Product Specialist

We think it's a good strategy to employ the millennial generation because their mortgages will be so huge they will be encouraged to work long and hard. Lewis is living up to this expectation and packs a physics and chemistry degree which has lifted the average intelligence of our tech team while baffling us daily with completely useless facts and figures.

Ross Colebourne

Technical Team Support

Ross joined us mid 2017, seamlessly settling in and proving himself to be a hard working valuable member of the technical team. But make no mistake, Ross is always up for a good story and a handle of mead, so his laid back and relaxed nature helps to balance out the office personalities.

Morgan Barrowman

Technical Team Support

Morgan is a quiet achiever and our own resident plumber, who came onboard for a change of pace. His get on with it attitude and problem solving has been a welcome addition to the tech team. We also discovered that Morgan is partial to a couple of beersies like any self-respecting westie and is a keen surfer, who likes to spends his time at Muriwai in the weekends. We also think, he kind of looks like a Viking.

Sadique Anam

Technical Team Support

Sadique completes the technical team and is a bit of a jack of all trades. His strong technical skills and background in sales have made him an instant asset for our technical team. Sadique moved from Christchurch to Auckland to be closer to friends and jumped on the chance to be a part of the Waterware family. Sadique loves his Cricket and has a passion for fusion cooking and wedding photography.

Krishan Kumar

Technical Team Support

Krishan came on-board our technical team a week before Morgan and Sadique. A quick study, Krishan has picked up Waterware's technical jargon extremely quickly. He is incredibly hard working and will do anything for his team. A lover of sport, he often finds himself watching the Cricket and 7's till the early hours of the morning (not on a school night of course) . Krish hails from Fiji and has travelled all around the Pacific Islands.

Danielle Ware

Marketing Executive Assistant

We promise we didn't just hire her for her surname! Danielle is a fast learner and quickly established herself as an indispensable asset within our team when she came on board originally as Office Assistant. Now running the Marketing front alongside Ben, this dynamic duo can tackle any job.

Meagan Sevenster

Customer Service & Sales Support

If you've called our office lately and had a welcoming young voice on the phone (and perhaps even heard her infamous giggle), then no doubt you've spoken to Meagan. Always happy and cheerful, she is the definition of customer service with a smile.

Dina Patel

Office Support


Dianne Jonsson

Sales Support Co-Ordinator

Dianne started with us in 2017 to help out while Betty was on maternity leave, but now Betty's back on board we just can't seem to let Dianne go! Recently joining us as a permanent staff member and now our Sales Support Co-Ordinator, we can't imagine life without her.

Sau Nua

Warehouse Manager

Sau had considered a career change once but we weren't having a bar of it. He looks pretty scary but then he smiles. Sau runs our warehouse like a well-oiled machine which never falters. Sau and his team work hard to guarantee a speedy despatch of your orders every day.

The Warehouse Team

We pride ourselves on recruiting a solid team of hard workers in our warehouse, and we're chuffed with this tight-nit team. This group of boys are always helpful and friendly.
