Meet the Team
The Select Electrical Team
Director / Electrician
Dave served his apprenticeship and worked as an Electrician in the UK for over 15 years before making the move to New Zealand. In the UK Dave worked in the commercial and industrial sector before embarking on his own successful company which he continued with until the lure of travel took hold.
Dave and his wife, Sue, spent over 2 years travelling, visiting many countries including; Australia, USA, Pacific Islands, Asia and also New Zealand. On returning back to the UK in 2007 Dave and Sue made the decision to relocate their lives to Queenstown.
"After years of travel we realised that Queenstown was the perfect place to call home".
Dave worked for several local companies gaining experience in high end architectural homes, automation and building control systems.
In 2013 Dave made the decision to work offshore in Australia on Barrow Island's The Gorgon Project which he did for 3 years.
During this time he gained many new skill sets working in the heavy industrial sector of the electrical business.
On his return in 2016 Dave took a management role where he was able to develop his skill sets yet again before embarking on setting up Select Electrical Installations. At this point he realised that his passion was delivering high quality work to satisfied customers and this is what the focus of Select Electrical Installations was to be.
With over 31 years of electrical experience in the UK, Australia and New Zealand, from residential, commercial and industrial electrical installations you can guarantee that Dave can help you with whatever your vision may be.
Joey grew up in Essex in the UK and left home when he was 22 to travel the world which led him to various destinations like Australia, SE Asia, India, Central America, USA and New Zealand.
Seven years ago he settled in this incredible little town in the south of New Zealand called Queenstown which he now calls home.
Joey tried his hand working in bars and restaurants for a few years before going back to his original trade of being an Electrician.
“We have a great team which is a pleasure to work with day in day out in helping build this bustling little community. We work hard but also take the time to enjoy the pleasure of everything Queenstown has to offer from snowboarding in the winter to hiking, camping and jet skiing on the lake in the summer”
