In 2001 Gareth moved to Whangarei. Gareth initially worked at FMG before setting up his own brokerage called Forte. However, within 12 months Gareth joined the Ahlers team, where he remained till 2015.
During this time Gareth learnt the trade of being a good, client-focused broker and advisor, whilst at the same time taking on other roles in the management of the business. Gareth was the Location Manager for Northland when Ahlers merged with ACM in 2008. Gareth was then appointed Branch Director of the Northland Branch when Crombie Lockwood purchased the business in 2012.
In late 2015 Gareth set up Balance Insurance Advisors and now provides insurance brokering from Northland to Auckland.
Gareth has a passion for delivering high quality insurance service. As he has learnt over the years, there is a huge amount of satisfaction and enjoyment that comes from making sure he gives clients great service and excellent advice which then builds long term relationships. It’s these client relationships that make all the hard work worthwhile.
Outside of work Gareth spends time with his children Carter and Zoe. He also loves watching great movies, playing darts or telling a few yarns with friends over a quiet ale.
