Employee Spotlight - David Webb
It’s exciting times for Redman Solutions. We’re expanding our team and have recently opened offices across the ditch. David Webb recently joined us as General Manager of NZ and will support our friends in New Zealand. With over 19 years of local government experience and a passion for fly fishing, we thought we would get to know David a little better.
You’ve worked in the local government sector for some time now, David. Can you tell us more about your background?
I’ve been working in local government in New Zealand for just over 19 years now and have built many trusted relationships within the sector.
I spent ten years working at Onstream Systems as Sales Director, two years at Objective, and was the CEO at Master Business Systems. My experience has allowed me to provide solutions that deliver efficiencies to councils and foster those relationships.
I’m about delivering value and always ask myself - how can I add additional value to what councils are doing? Whether that be solutions or services.
It seems like you love what you do.
I really do. I think it’s because I don’t see my customers as customers but as friends and partners. I like to provide solutions as a trusted advisor to make their jobs easier. I don’t find work tedious or stressful and enjoy working with people.
Team Redman is excited to have you onboard - why did you decide to join the team?
I am driven and excited by Redman’s passion for providing its customers with value. They aren’t a faceless team - they stand by what they do, and it is always about the customer. I am not looking to provide New Zealand councils with technology and widgets, I want to build relationships, and Redman’s values resonate with that.
I was also drawn to their product portfolio and recent partnerships. They complement what councils are looking for in this current environment but are also forward-thinking in their approach to new and emerging technologies.
You live in a beautiful country, so how do you enjoy spending your time outside of work?
Fishing, and more fishing! I enjoy fly fishing on the river and regularly take my boat out. In the past, I ran a small business where I would conduct guided tours and teach people how to fly fish. It’s a passion of mine, and I feel fortunate to be able to spend my downtime out on the water.
