Dane first started in the ‘steel’ industry 12 years ago. Firstly for stainless steel merchant Stainless Alloys, where he worked for five years; initially as a Storeperson, then a transport driver before moving into sales - a vocation it quickly became apparent was his forté.
As an integral part of Stainless Alloys’ sales-force, Dane spent time on-the-road, the phone, and even found himself seconded to purchasing roles on occasion - all in all, a good grounding for the ensuing years!
In 2002 followed the obligatory Kiwi OE during which time Dane worked as an estimator for pipe-fitting company Kee Klamp.
It wasn’t long before Dane was back at the sales coalface in a Sales Rep.'s position, this time with Fletcher Easysteel on his return to New Zealand. It was here he first found scaffold and temporary structures!
From 2006 (and Dane’s last position before joining Camelspace) he was Sales Manager at a scaffold importer spun-off from Fletcher's.
