Principal Aquatics Specialist
Over the last 25 years, Alex has been involved across all facets of the Aquatics industry and the role it plays in our communities. As a consistent contributor to industry through work as a Poolsafe assessor, Senior Assessor Mentor for Skills Active, and through panels for Recreation Aotearoa, Alex has developed an excellent knowledge of the current challenges facing the sector.
Alex has a broad skillset that covers the complexities of operating all sizes of Aquatic facilities while navigating the local government environment. Alex has a very strong operational focus, particularly around HSW systems, incident investigation, facility operating models, pool plant, asset maintenance, stakeholder relationships, and strategic development. As an experienced facility manager and leadership mentor, Alex can help strengthen your leadership group.
Alex believes in creating better practice in operations through a systematic approach that builds the industry as a whole and provides communities with a place to safely recreate in water.
In his spare time Alex can be found out running, playing guitar and enjoying the outdoors.
