Meet the team

Gary-204
Gary Reid, Director

Gary was a New Zealand single sculler in the 1984 Olympic Games and to this day the same passion for his sport of rowing is evident though his role as Director at Concept 2.
He is very proud to be working with a globally respected brand and building positive relationships with our customers has always been a main priority of his.

In his spare time, from a young age Gary has a real desire for the beach and loves the warm weather. He is a man of many trades and if he isn't playing with his kids on the beach, you will be sure to find him fixing things, painting or mowing the lawns at his house. Gary is very approachable when it comes to rowing and his enthusiastic attitude towards life creates a warming welcome here at Concept 2.

Andrea Yates, CEO

Far from your stereotypical accountant, Andrea has been with our team at Concept 2 since 2001, and in 2017 stepped into the role of CEO. 
Andrea has a passion for problem solving which is evident in her pragmatic approach to running a business and enjoying the sophisticated process for achieving optimal efficiency.

When not busy at work, Andrea enjoys Yoga and still find time to work out at the gym and be a mother to 4 children.  Although being an accountant for over twenty years, Andrea brings a phenomenal personality to work every day and is a true asset to our team at Concept 2.

Andrew Delamere, Mechanics & Servicing
Andrew has been with our team here at Concept 2 for over 15 years. He has a strong work ethic and is definitely our 'Go-To' man in the workshop.   He has an excellent rapport with our customers and provides a wealth of knowledge and experience with the Concept 2 products.
Being a kinesthetics learner, Andrew knows the schematics of each machine like the back of his hand due to  working with detailed parts each day.

In Andrew's spare time he lives for sunny days to enjoy catching fish and spending quality time with his Mokopunas (Grandchildren). He is a bit of a DIY guy where he enjoys pottering and being the handyman around the house. Never the less, rainy days don't bother him as any good Kiwi guy, Andrew  loves his rugby league being a keen supporter of the Warriors.




 
Sam Reid- Sales & Administration Manager 

Growing up in the Reid family, Sam couldn’t help but find herself immersed in the world of rowing! Sam has been exercising with- and assembling- Concept2 machines for as long as she can remember. Along the way she has gained skills and knowledge which make her uniquely qualified for answering any questions about our machines, and ensuring our customers have the experience they are looking for when they choose Concept2.

In her spare time Sam loves to get outdoors, head down to the beach for some Volleyball, or take a dip in the ocean- not bad hobbies to have when your office is based at Mt Maunganui! Sam also has a creative flair which she brings to her work, brightening up the office here at Concept2.
