Todd Harding - Managing Director
Todd has been the owner of Alliance for the past 20+ years. Todd's technical background as an electronics technician gives him a wide range of understanding when it comes to your Satellite Dish, TV and Audio systems. For the last 10+ years he has turned his skills to the RV industry, and has broadened both his skills and knowledge to include many other aspects of this diverse and evolving industry. Todd believes a friendly smile and a willingness to listen to what his customers want or need is most important, and you can always expect to find this at Alliance RV. Todd & his partner Amy both really enjoy working in the RV industry and meeting the many great people who make up the RV community.
Amy Gibney - Managing Director / Admin
Todd & Amy have been working together to grow Alliance in the RV industry whilst raising full-time their four shared children and maintaining their rural property. Using her skills of running a large household and working in varying industries such as, an electrical firm, Public Trust, mechanical workshop and a local resort, she takes care of keeping things running behind the scenes. The advantage of Amy having previously worked in various industries means she can relate to a wide range of customers and their needs, all with a friendly smile and willingness to help.
Royce Woods - Workshop Manager / RV Technician
Royce & his partner Kylee made the bold decision to move away from Auckland to raise their young family close to the beach and the awesome lifestyle that the BOP has to offer. After completing his Coachbuilding qualifications for Auckland Coachbuilders, Royce moved onto a Supervisor role at Talvor Motorhomes, including assisting with the set up of their Auckland manufacturing workshop. This then lead into the day-to-day running and managing of staff for the NZ manufacturing arm, reporting directly back to Australia. With 13 years of building, manufacturing & management experience, Royce & Kylee made the move to BOP in early 2017, and he then took up a role at another local RV business. With the changes ahead for Alliance RV in 2018, it was a great opportunity for Royce to get on board and join the team. His passion for helping people backed by his many years of experience are greatly welcomed by all the team and our valued customers.
Leon Clark - RV Technician
Even though Leon and his Wife Miranda keep very busy lives between Miranda's business and other community activities, their little girl, family and a passion for all forms of cycling, Leon somehow manages to fit in overtime when required. Being a born and raised Tauranga local, and having spent time working at On The Way RV for 11 years from 2006, there are many of our existing customers who are already familiar with his high standard of work. Prior to joining the RV industry, Leon spent time in Auto Electrical roles, Small Motor Machining, light Engineering and in very early years at a local bike shop. Todd & Leon had previously worked alongside each other on various jobs for OWRV, so they both knew how each other worked, and when the opportunity came up for Leon to join our team it was a very quick yes from us, as we knew he would be a great fit.
Greg Weeks - RV Technician
Prior to joining the team at Alliance RV, Greg & his wife Kea ran their own business for over five years, manufacturing and undergoing repairs and maintenance on horse floats, trailers and boats. His broad general skills, good eye for detail and exceptionally friendly & professional way he deals with people, have made him a great fit for the team. Greg has also been enjoying adding to his knowledge, the specialist skills that everyone in the team have to offer, and the varied tasks we undergo in this industry to help our customers.
Bryan Donnelly - RV Technician
Bryan and his partner Fritha have come over from the UK to take up the NZ lifestyle and became permanent residents in 2006. They both bring a wealth of skills and personality to our shores and we are pleased to have them in our team. Bryan's background is with working on Telescopes in such places as the Canary Islands, Hawaii, India, China and even Australia, which then, with the arrival of two girls, led into more settled and family friendly roles in Mechatronics and Automation Engineering. His broad and technical strength in Electronics Engineering is a great addition to our team, and moving forward with advances in the technology of the products and appliances being used in RV's, we see Bryan's addition to the team a real asset.
Greg Dick - RV Technician
Greg comes with a well-rounded background, having previously been a cabinetmaker by trade and then diversifying into all aspects of boat building including construction, renovation and finishing. Coming back to Tauranga to settle back in NZ with his wife Joy, Greg had already joined the RV industry. After meeting with us at our new premise he appreciated our values, practices and team culture, and we knew pretty quickly that he would be a great addition to the Alliance team.
Graeme Smith - RV Technician
When the time was right Graeme came on board and very easily slotted into the workshop. With a background in Mechanical Engineering, a passion for everything RV and a great positive attitude, it was an easy decision for us. Graeme & his wife Jayne are also lucky enough to own their own motorhome and are members of the NZMCA. Graeme also has many other hidden talents on a professional level, and we are fortunate enough that he is willing to share these with us as we continue to grow and develop our business.
Lourens Stols - RV Technician
Due to a turn of events in the local bus building industry, we were fortunate enough to meet Lourens, a qualified auto electrician, with many years experience working on larger vehicles in both electrical and mechanical fields. Lourens, his wife Michaela and their family came to NZ from South Africa back in 2004, and have settled in Te Puke. His sense of humour, high standards and kind nature have made him an easy fit with the Alliance culture & team.
