ABOUT US

A NOTE FROM DOUG

Aloha, Kia ora, Hi!

Thanks for stopping by to learn a little bit more about us. My philosophy is that every business merely provides lifestyle choices. A great vision and continual innovation makes our world a better place. Anything is possible with the right leadership, work ethic, insight and talent, and being ordinary should never be an option.

In our business good people are the key. We invest a lot of time ensuring that we recruit the best people, deploy them in the right role with clear expectations and then challenge them to produce the greatest work of their careers everyday in a supportive environment that allows them to thrive.

Living a balanced life is the key to sustained high individual performance over long periods of time. Like the four wheels of a Formula 1 race car that is required to run at high speeds for extended periods to win the race, each “wheel” must have the same commitment of time, focus and priority. My four wheels for a balanced life are: 1) Family and the people you care about 2) Your personal well being including-physical, mental, and spiritual health, growth and happiness 3) Career success and 4) Individual community contribution

Our ideal client is a brand that values the same principles as us, one who cares about always providing a quality product and experience and is poised for growth with great marketing.

I hope we have the opportunity to meet and work together soon.

A Hui Ho!


Doug
