Meet The Management Team

Russell - Managing Director -  Russell has over 30 years experience in the
industry. He worked asa senior buyer for a major department chain store before seeing the opening in the market for a company such as Commercial Supplies, which he founded in 2003.  His two main passions in life are his family and his boat "Maretta". He can often be spotted on weekends making deliveries to customers living on Waiheke and Great Barrier Island.





Nadine - Marketing Manager -  Nadine, Russell's wife, has been working for Commercial Supplies since late 2003.  Nadine is responsible for overseeing the website, accounts and marketing.  In her spare time she is a professional ballroom dancing teacher (Dancerama Studios) and imports dancing shoes from Germany, and occasionally joins Russell for trips out on "Maretta" when the sea is very calm.  She loves her job and especially likes chatting to and helping a wide range of customers.

Russell & Nadine were very proud to be awarded the Bert Metge trophy at the 2009 Motel Association Conference for the best Trade Personality. 



Krystle - Retail Division Manager
Krystle is Russell and Nadine's only daughter. She completed her Bachelor of Communications degree majoring in Public Relations and now runs Commercial Supplies retail division -  Krystle also assists with Commercial Supplies sales and accounts.  Krystle's main focus is managing our new "Open to the Public" website and she will probably be your first point of contact when you phone through.  Krystle has grown up with textiles and has a great passion for business and communicating with others.
