Genia (more commonly known as Gen) came to New Zealand from Russia when she was 13. She graduated from Auckland University and landed a job as a property administrator for a Body Corporate Administration company in Auckland which gave her great first-hand exposure to the NZ leaky buildings saga!
The next stop was a Market Analyst role at New Zealand Steel. Gen considers herself lucky to have opportunities within NZS to try her hand in various roles including sales, managing various key accounts and eventually looking after their South Island COLORSTEEL customers.
She has recently stepped into a role of a Business Development Manager – providing support in communication and education with NZS partners including architects, designers, builders and roofers. Her passion very much remains in the relationship-building aspect of the job. In her spare time, Gen enjoys a glass of Pinot Noir and long romantic walks on the beach (…with her dogs).
Gen is very much looking forward to being Auckland’s new branch leader and getting to know everyone.
