Cameron was raised and schooled in Pakuranga. He started laying carpet at 17 and started his own company (The Carpet Man) in 2009 specialising in carpeting for local developers and builders. Because of this background, he is very familiar with the building industry. Cameron brought most of his client base over when the two companies merged. He is enjoying being off the tools and becoming more customer focussed, measuring and advising. When not at work, Cam enjoys fishing, surfing and a range of outdoor activities.
