Adam Pollard

    Managing Director

    In 1996 Adam walked through the doors of Morgan & Pollard with a focus on the here-and-now and a vision for the future. Now, close to two decades later, his running of the company continues to reward both the team and our clients.

    Managing the day-to-day supervision of M+P requires a multi-disciplinary approach. Adam must focus on meeting clients, preparing quotes and overseeing contracts. He must also provide a broad overview on all the work while ensuring the financial performance of the company remains exemplary.

    His experience pre-M+P is a great advantage. Gaining an Advance Trade Certificate in Carpentry and a National Certificate in Horticulture (landscape) Level 4 certainly helps with the technical side of things.

    As the immediate past president of the Landscape Industries Association of New Zealand and Chair of Board for Horticulture ITO (which trains apprentices over whole horticulture industry), Adam also has consummate management experience to draw from. With excellent problem-solving skills and a warm, friendly style he is well liked by clients and the team, sentiment that is clearly reciprocated.

    On all types of projects Adam enjoys seeing the long-term transformation of the landscape. His stewardship will continue to have as positive an effect on the growth and development of Morgan+Pollard.

     

    Glenn Turpin

    Contracts Manager

    For close to a decade Glenn has overseen the large contracts of Morgan+Pollard focusing on the small details to ensure the end result is to the complete satisfaction of all parties.

    His previous experience is of great value in his daily work. With multiple qualifications in carpentry he started an apprenticeship at Lunyes Construction before becoming a site project manager, a position he would hold for the rest of his seventeen-year stint with the company.

    After contract managing for a carpet laying firm for another four years he was perfectly set up with know-how and can-do when he stepped through our doors.

    Glenn’s organisational abilities came in handy in his previous work and they’ve been put to good use at Morgan & Pollard. Clients find his communication skills and relaxed demeanour easy to deal with, an important trait considering some major projects last up to two years.

    It’s Glenn’s overall attitude that is as important as any specific skill-set. He places immense value on the pride of a job well done, and ensures there are always exacting standards to ensure the ‘well done’ result is never in doubt.

     

    Kay Herriott

    Office Manager

    It doesn’t take long to see what a difference Kay Herriot makes in the way Morgan+Pollard runs. It’s her obvious skill and dedication that provides both efficiency and clarity to our on-going work.

    Kay’s career has covered a range of positions in some reputable companies, including credit controller, sales coordination and research roles. Now, with considerable experience and some pertinent qualifications, her efforts as our Office Manager are delivered with efficiency and grace.

    Having been with the company since 2005, Kay knows the business inside and out. Her helpful and warm nature is utilised in many shapes and forms over a large variety of work. Here, her workload could be it looking after the financials, overseeing reception or, when customers require additional assistance, rolling up her sleeves and getting stuck in unloading trucks where necessary.

    With this going on in the average work day you’d think Kay would appreciate some relaxing downtime away from the office. But instead it’s taken up with a bustling family life, and cake decorating. And when she’s not enjoying time with her husband and adult children her thoughts are preoccupied with work as a web admin and committee member of the Hornby United Football Club. Clearly, with everything going on, time management is one of Kay’s strongest capabilities.
