Wayne served in the NZ Army for 24 years, starting his career as a caterer, and advancing into instructional roles and logistics / supply chain management.  These management roles also provided project management opportunities which Wayne thoroughly enjoyed.  Through the logistics & project management roles, Wayne was able to gain some excellent skills which have transferred well into the construction industry - specifically involving the challenges of renovation building.

Anna & Wayne moved around to fulfill various NZDF roles which included relocating to Waiouru, Christchurch and Palmerston North throughout this stage of their careers.  While owning investment properties in the Manawatu, and through trying to complete maintenance and renovation work remotely from their Christchurch & Waiouru locations, they saw an opportunity for a specialised renovation design & build company.  They found an online advertisement for Refresh Renovations, and after looking into the opportunity decided to take on the Refresh Manawatu branch in 2012.

Anna & Wayne love the Manawatu as a great place to raise a family and to enjoy the best of rural and city living.
