Aidan Redmond – The Boss who is on the Job
Aidan is the Director of Painting Matters and has been painting for over 22 years. When he first came to New Zealand he worked for Rockfern Painters where he gained valuable experience working with Savory Construction on the construction of the Pak n Saves. After a few years he decided to go out on his own and through hard work and a solid work ethic he has built Painting Matters up to be the reliable, professional company that it is. He is experienced in all aspects of painting including waterblasting, sanding, priming, finish coating, plastering and repairs. Aidan’s main strength is running the jobs, he has great communication skills and is dedicated to making sure the team get the job done on time and to high standards.
Aidan came to New Zealand from County Wexford, Ireland in 1989 for a year’s overseas experience. He liked it so much he stayed and has been married to Siobhan for over 17 years. He has 2 great children Kieran and Cushla and a large family of 9 brothers and sisters back in Ireland. When he’s not in his overalls he enjoys going to the gym, fishing, coaching Cushla’s soccer team and playing soccer and the odd game of golf. He loves sport so much that he has earnt himself the nickname “Deputy Minister of Sport” . He also loves travelling especially back to Ireland to see his family and to partake in the odd pint of Guinness!
