A lifetime in the industry has given an insight into brands that are reliable and offer superior performance, and a search through the Selectrix brand portfolio showcases some exceptional products.
Having grown up in the Appliance Trade, Ben lives and breaths the game. Ben started in the 80’s building AV cabinets before starting in Sales at the Dunedin Selectrix in the late 90’s whilst studying for a Bachelor of Commerce. In 2000 he headed to Wellington to undertake a Building Science Degree which would later prove invaluable with regards to Selectrix Wanaka which he opened in 2002.
Like his father the main aim is to make sure that honest advice is imparted and the customer is left extremely happy with their purchase. Ben’s key roles involve Sales, Delivery & Installation, Consulting on System Design & Automation on Audio Visual Product and making sure your emails are read.
Ben is a massive fan of Wanaka’s outdoors, a mad keen Skier since his young Race Days, and more recently lured by Wanaka’s ‘we are triathlon’ Ben has competed in Wanaka’s Challenge Wanaka since 2008 along with other great races such as Contact Epic, the Motatapu Ice Breaker Marathon and the odd cycle event. When he’s not out competing or training Ben loves being a doting Husband to Janette and Father to Max & Kaitlyn, playing his guitar or working on the garden.
A.K.A. the Woozle is the perhaps New Zealand’s only Appliance Retail Dog. When he’s not supervising the Shop, Ken, Ben, Stu & Ashley or welcoming customers he occupies himself sleeping in his Wool Basket occasionally waking to chase the odd thing of interest that may appear on a flat screen or two.
