Robbie Morphew and Haraish Kumar - Auckland Central and Waitakere
Region: Auckland Central and Waitakere
Home renovation consultant/s: Greg Thompson
Robbie’s professional background has been in business software, working for clients such as Cap Gemini, Glaxo Smith Kline and Air New Zealand. As such he has been responsible for implementing solutions to a variety of business problems, and has now made the move into business ownership and management himself.
Now as a Refresh Renovations franchisee, Robbie loves the challenges involved in building a world class renovation company. “It’s important to remember that the work we do is on our customer’s homes, and it doesn’t get much more personal than that. Everything we do on a daily basis is aimed at guiding our clients along the path to fulfilling their dreams and ensuring they get there safely. I’m hugely proud of our team and the work they do.”
Haraish grew up around a thriving family business and was always taught the core values of integrity, honesty and adaptability to the ongoing trends in the industry.
He began his career as a civil engineer, but transitioned into business management. After completing a Master’s in Business Administration, Haraish pursued a career which has been largely focused on residential building and renovations, which he’s passionate about and has been involved in since 2004. Haraish also has well developed planning & organisational skills and experience in Project management.
During his spare time Robbie loves racing yachts on our beautiful Hauraki Gulf, and also enjoys scuba diving as well as walking with his wife Helen and his dog Asha.
Outside of work, Haraish enjoys music, watching movies and loves playing badminton. A family man, Haraish is married with a son and daughter, each with completely different hobbies, which keeps him on his toes.
