Business success is about developing good, lasting relationships with your clients and customers; and that’s exactly what the new owner of Speedy Signs Newton believes.
Brent Smith is the proud new owner of the store in Newton, and he has been forming great relationships with his customers and clients throughout his diverse career. These skills, and experience from his 25 years in Management, Sales, and Marketing is what Brent brings to his store, making him a great asset to Speedy Signs.
He’s been Managing Director of Aberdeen Imports Limited, and General Manager of Horizon Pacific, CustomVis, Total Hospitality Solutions (NZ) Limited, and NZ Business Manager at RS Components NZ Ltd.
Across these roles Brent has gained a wealth of knowledge and experience in IT, Software, Hospitality, and Event Management. Having been Managing Director of a start-up company, Brent certainly knows how to effectively work within small businesses, what it takes to get them going, and growing.
In Brent’s time off he is a bit of a sports fanatic, well at least enjoys being active and spending time at Mangawhai Beach, playing cricket, tennis, and especially hockey. Brent is not only the current masters’ representative of the North Harbour Hockey Association, but is also a Representative Hockey Coach and Mentor.
Although Brent has only just started with the business, the production team remains the same and is still lead by star designer, Andy. Another new addition to the team is Florence Adewusi who is the new Client Account Specialist who will typically be the first point of contact when your contact the store or visit the show room.
Speedy Signs is part of the world’s largest sign franchise and provides customers with high quality, affordable products, with a quick turnaround. Signage plays an integral part in the recognition of a brand, and each Speedy Signs center offers a complete signage service, and each project is tailored to the needs of the customer.
The team here at Speedy Signs are stoked that Brent has joined the crew!
