MANAGING DIRECTOR JOHN FENWICK is our hands-on owner. He’s involved in everything from designing large-scale pallet racking solutions for our clients, to keeping things running smoothly and building solid relationships. The best thing about this job? Solving our clients’ storage problems and seeing the end result really contribute to their business.
Prior to PRS, John held senior management roles with several nationwide freight and logistics businesses. When not doing the job he loves, you’ll find John running after his kids or hitting the ski slopes.
Our SALES DIRECTOR ANTONY STRAKA spends his days out of the office in the market with clients. The customer contact is the highlight of his role, and he takes great pride in providing quality products and dedicated service.
With a Post Graduate Diploma in Business, Antony has been involved in the freight and logistics industry since 1995, and started PRS in 2010. When he’s not looking after our clients, Antony likes to escape with the family to the coast.
GENERAL MANAGER JOHN COCHRANE keeps busy with organising and completing client orders and managing successful projects. He’s also in charge of Health & Safety, as well as supporting our key accounts. John has been involved hands on in racking since 1993, and joined our growing team in 2016.
Ultimately, customer satisfaction is what gets him out of bed in the morning, but John also enjoys working with a great team and learning something new every day. On weekends John likes to spend a little quality time with his wife and three kids on their lifestyle property, occasionally sneaking off for a peaceful fishing expedition.
INSTALLATION MANAGER TIM McMIKEN manages our experienced team of installers, and quotes our new install projects. His days are mainly office based with sales meetings making a regular appearance in his diary.
Tim brings with him five years of racking installation experience, although he says he is still learning plenty of new things on the job. When Tim needs to let off steam, you’ll often find him at the neighbourhood gym.
KEY ACCOUNTS MANAGER ANDREW GREEN manages the purchase and sale of our second hand racking. This entails everything from TradeMe sales to costing installations and repair audits. He’s been an installer of shelving and racking since 1996.
Andrew loves solving a client’s storage needs, and looking back at a challenging project, knowing the team went above and beyond. A dedicated family man, Andrew spends his days off hanging out with his wife and two sons, playing lawn bowls or maintaining the family home.
FLEET & ASSET MANAGER PETER MERRIE looks after most things to do with vehicles and equipment including servicing and replacement. Any special projects to do with the office and warehouse buildings are also sent Peter’s way.
Peter’s focus is helping the rest of the team by dealing with those matters that are not directly related to the supply and installation of pallet racking. Away from the office he finds time to travel, tinker with his classic car, and spend time with his family including three grandchildren.
KIRSTY HERON our MARKETING MANAGER takes care of everything from our marketing strategy to branding, promotions and this website. With a Bachelor of Business, Kirsty has worked in marketing across sectors as diverse as adventure travel, food, publishing and now pallet racking!
Kirsty loves talking to clients about their finished projects. She finds it very satisfying to hear how well their projects went, and how our pallet racking solutions have transformed how they handle their storage and order fulfilment. Downtime is often spent in the forest mountain biking, ferrying the kids around town or heading out on family adventures.
