Ben Parsons & Craig Paterson of Aotea Electric Queenstown Celebrate Long Service

Over the past quarter, two key members of the Aotea Electric Queenstown team have surpassed some significant long service milestones. Join us in celebrating them!

Aotea Electric Queenstown Area Manager Craig Paterson and Contracts Manager Ben Parsons received their Long Service Award Certificates earlier this year. A significant milestone!

Contracts Manager Ben Parsons joined the Aotea family 20 years ago in May, 2021. Ben looks after Aotea Electric Queentown's large residential properties, commercial and mechanical work whilst also studying in the Aotea Management Development Programme. Ben can always be relied upon to give you a hand whenever you need it and he does it with a smile on his face! When Ben's not working hard, you'll find him enjoying some relaxing downtime with his wife Catherine at their Coromandel batch or ticking off all of the great walks across the country.

In July 2021, Area Manager Craig Paterson reached 27 years in the Aotea family. Overseeing the majority of Aotea Electric Queenstown's large commercial projects, Craig certainly has his hands full. However, despite this busy schedule his door is always open to the team and he will always squeeze in a beer at the end of the week. Craig loves the adventurous Queenstown life with his passion for mountain biking and getting up the mountain to hit the slopes. For the last 15 years, Craig has been trying to keep his Wednesday mornings free, so he can go skiing - however, this is yet to happen!

We are grateful for the hard work Ben and Craig have contributed to Aotea Electric Queenstown over the past two decades, and we hope to continue to see great things from them!
