Terry may be one of the most experienced professional lawn mowing operators in the Western Bay of Plenty and New Zealand with over 20 years experience. Since joining the Crewcut Franchise Group back in November 2007 he moved his business and residence to Te Puke from Papamoa. Since then has well and truly been accepted by the town’s community as one of their own. He mainly works in Te Puke and has a client base in Maketu, Waitangi and Little Waihi. You can’t miss him as he drives a blue Ford F150 truck towing the Crewcut sign written trailer. Terry not only uses professional quality mowers/brushcutters/blowers but operates a ride on mower on medium to large sized properties.
Since coming to New Zealand back in 2005 with a massage equipment business, he decided to refocus his business direction by rejoining his passion of working outdoors mowing lawns. After discussions with other franchise organisations Terry choose Crewcut as he felt they stepped up to the mark with their presentation and branding and looked like it would suit him the best. For 10 years prior to Crewcut, he operated his lawn mowing business in Melbourne’s eastern suburbs. Prior to this he worked with the Victorian Department of Labour for 20 years in senior managerial positions which put him in a good stead to be able to manage his own business adventures.
Besides a steady flow of customer leads from Crewcut Regional Office and his own self promotion, Terry finds having the backup system with the franchise organisation great to fall back on if you need to take time off from work.
Terry’s free time is rare. He enjoys working as it keeps him fit and healthy and being a hands-on person, he has no problem with picking up tools to help others. His business mission is to provide customer service excellence and by providing that excellence it rebounds back on his business both financially and personally. He advocates that by treating your clients as well as others with a great respect and sincerity, it puts you in the forefront to be recognised. He has had experience of this with his clients who refer his name to their friends, thus giving the opportunity for new clients to be added to his already existing client base. Also, by being out on the road living/working/shopping in Te Puke, the community are continuously reminded of the Crewcut Group.
