Evan _ Head of Sales
I have always been passionate about creativity, design and architecture – and have worked as a graphic designer for many years. This has allowed me to combine these passions with when working as a design and sales consultant for Orange Homes. Outside of work, my wife and I have three amazing kids, so as you can imagine they keep me pretty busy in my spare time. When I’m not running after them, you’ll probably find me mountain biking, drinking coffee, or playing the guitar.

Ginny _ Design & Sales Consultant
Being the fourth generation to join Orange Homes, it would be fair to say that I am extremely passionate about the housing industry and helping clients build their dream home. Prior to joining the family business, you would have found me on the slopes representing New Zealand as an alpine ski racer. However, these days when I’m not working with clients you may find me walking the many trails NZ has to offer, or working on my latest project which is renovating a 1970s Oxford caravan!

Ed _ Design & Sales Consultant
My background prior to join Orange Homes in 2018 was in solar PV and energy efficiency. Since then I have helped many clients design and build their dream home, and the thrill of knowing that I am helping someone build their future never gets old. In my spare time I run the odd half marathon, dance modern jive, and travel our beautiful country whenever I get the chance.

Dee _ Design & Sales Consultant
I have been around the building industry all my life – my uncles in South Africa were builders and my dad had a few glazing and aluminium businesses, which is how I started my sales career. Now a part of the Orange Homes team, I am able to utilize my previous experience and combine it with my passion of drawing plans and helping clients build their dream home. If I’m not in the office, I’m outside riding my horses, or spending quality time with my two beautiful girls.

Dan _ Design & Sales Consultant
I have had a diverse career background ranging from building and construction to fitness and professional sport, having played rugby professionally in both Cornwall and Gloucester – where my daughter was born. My return to Canterbury has provided me with the opportunity to continue with my passion for new homes. My time on the tools, working on building sites, has given me a great understanding of the process from start to finish.
