Company Directors

Blair Skevington - Managing Director/Co-Owner

Blair has a real entrepreneurial spirit. He began his career as a baker and sawmill labourer, but at age 19 took on the lease of a rundown hotel with a business partner. Together, they built up the North Western Hotel in Palmerston Otago.

Never one to rest, Blair started contracting work and was eventually offered a full-time position with Macraes gold mine in various departments. He then progressed to become a crane operator for Macraes before seizing the opportunity to start his own contracting business. From there, Skevingtons was born. Blair leads from the top, bringing a strong work ethic and can-do attitude with him to every job he takes on. He has a strong customer focus and does not hesitate to go out of his way to get the best deal he can for his clients.

Blair has gained experience across the mining, irrigation and construction industries and completes work for mining, civil, residential, and agricultural clients. He’s worked with some of the South Island’s most well-known companies including OceanaGold, Downers, Fulton Hogan, Meridian, PowerNet and Alpine Energy.

Angela and Blair built the business up with a lot of hard work focusing on being a reliable name, and believe the company’s sustainability has been possible through the company’s employees and values, in doing so, the company has grown steadily.

Both are proud to have an established New Zealand owned family business that supports the local regions.
