Bart grew up in the village in Wainibuku, a rural setting about 18km away from Suva, the capital of Fiji. Form there his family moved to Suva where he completed his primary and high school education. At 19, he studied at the University of Auckland and upon graduating, kicked off his career at PwC (Auckland).
After a few years of working in different industries, Bart and his twin brother Jourdan decided to start a business together and established Waikato Shutters & Blinds in Hamilton. They have gone on to include Weathermaster Hamilton and EasyBuild Waikato to their group of companies.
Bart loved the experience of working alongside Jourdan and they got into business with a ‘let’s give it a go and have some fun while at it’ attitude.
Outside of work, he enjoys spending time with his wife May and kids Isabella and Dallas out and about. On a nice day, you’ll find him either surfing, diving or fishing. He can’t keep still!
