NZ Crane Hire would like to welcome a new addition to our team, Tabitha Smith, who started as our Business Development Manager in September 2023. Tabitha has fourteen years’ sales experience in Account Management and Business Development across many different industries, such as radio advertising with NZME, looking after 120 travel agencies for Emirates Airlines and recently came from Komatsu selling heavy machinery to the construction industry. In Tabitha’s spare time she loves to spend time with family and friends, watching her son play rugby and walking her dog, and she can’t say no to a fishing trip.
Tabitha says, “I’m really excited about my new role with NZ Cranes. Their company values of Safety, Reliability, and Learning align well with my core values. The reason why I got into sales was that I love building relationships with every person that I encounter and supporting them in what they are trying to achieve. The great thing about meeting so many people out in market is you don’t only get to learn about their business but also about their families and hobbies, and that forms long-lasting friendships.”
The SH10 Kāeo Bridge upgrade project includes a new two-lane bridge and roundabout at the intersection of SH10 and Whangaroa Road that will improve safety and traffic flow. NZ Cranes mobilised its Liebherr LTM1450 in luffing fly jib configuration to lift and place the bridge beams that span over the Kāeo River.
