Meet your Water­son’s team

Matamata Chronicle - - Celebrating 90 Years Of Service To The Matamata Di -

Mandy McNeill: My name is Mandy McNeill. I have worked at Water­son’s Fur­ni­ture Court as a sales con­sul­tant for six and half years. I had a two year break when I moved to Tau­ranga and re­joined the team at the end of 2009. I have lived in Mata­mata since I was a baby on the fam­ily farm at Wardville. I have two sons, Paul and Sean, a daugh­ter-in-law Mizue, and a cute-as-a but­ton grand- daugh­ter So­phie who is now 5 years old. Robyn Vick­ers: My name is Robyn Vick­ers, I have been work­ing in the floor­ing depart­ment at Water­son’s for the past three months and whilst it has been a steep learn­ing curve, I have thor­oughly en­joyed it. There is a great deal more to learn in floor­ing than I ever would have imag­ined, but I am find­ing it in­ter­est­ing and stim­u­lat­ing, there is al­ways some­thing new and dif­fer­ent to learn or do. I am a mother of four, with two daugh­ters still at home, Ains­ley who is 19 and Briar who is 14. Tony van der Zouwe: Hello, my name is Tony van der Zouwe (bed­room sales con­sul­tant) I have been work­ing for Water­son’s Fur­ni­ture Court for 3½ years, pre­vi­ously em­ployed at Bedpost St Lukes in Auck­land. It was a big step in my life to move to a new town but I have had no re­grets and have made some great friends. The main as­pect I like about this busi­ness is the close contact you build with cus­tomers and help­ing them with prod­uct knowl­edge, solv­ing cus­tomer queries but above all be­ing re­spect­ful and friendly to them. Tot ziens - see you later. Penny To­ma­lin: Hi, my name is Penny To­ma­lin and my ti­tle here at Water­son’s is Re­cep­tion­ist / Ad­min­is­tra­tor. I will be cel­e­brat­ing 4 years (this time round) with the com­pany in Oc­to­ber, but worked here pre­vi­ously be­fore hav­ing my 2 awe­some boys, Cody & Dy­lan, hav­ing started my 1st em­ploy­ment at Water­son’s in June 2002 (10 years ago!). I work only school hours so I still get to en­joy the job of moth­er­hood as well. Ev­ery day at work (and home) brings me a new chal­lenge, and I en­joy the chal­lenge! Sher­ree Bar­ron: My name is Sher­ree Bar­ron. I am a Sales Con­sul­tant at Water­son’s Fur­ni­ture Court. I have been with the com­pany for one and half years. Be­fore I joined the team at Water­son’s, I worked at the Ware­house, Mata­mata part-time. I have lived in Mata­mata most of my life, hav­ing spent three years in Taupo where I worked at a Fur­ni­ture Depart­ment. I have two won­der­ful teenage daugh­ters, Ash­ley 19 and Lisa 17, whom I adore. I live with my part­ner Richard and our cat “Jerry”. Eric Hau­raki: Hi I am Eric Hau­raki and I’m the de­liv­ery and store­man at Water­son’s Fur­ni­ture and Car­pet Court. I have been em­ployed here for 5 months and I’m re­ally en­joy­ing be­ing part of the team. I was born and bred in Mata­mata, and brought up on the fam­ily farm in Ngarua. I live with my wife and mother-in-law in Wa­haroa. I am a fa­ther of 10 and a grand­fa­ther of 26 (with one more on the way)! I en­joy hunt­ing, fish­ing, chainsawing and a few beers af­ter a hard days work! Blair Werder: Blair is 37 years of age, born in Te Aroha and raised in Hamil­ton. Now liv­ing back in Te Aroha. Blair loves Pinna Co­ladas and walks in the rain, his wife Tara and six year old Sa­man­tha. Blair also loves noth­ing bet­ter than sweat­ing it out on the squash court and then re­plac­ing lost fluid with the am­ber nec­tar. Blair has been at Water­son’s for close to five years and is pas­sion­ate about sell­ing car­pet, and en­joys see­ing the end re­sult of a well done job (smil­ing cus­tomers).
