Our People at Taranaki

Scott Vile

Apart from his wife Natalie and their two boys, Bentley and Jordan (together with the team at Landmark Homes Taranaki, of course), Scott Vile's favourite thing in the world is his 1968 Chevy Camaro SS. And why wouldn't it be? He'd dreamed of the car since he was a little boy — it’s the stuff of legendary Hollywood movies and Bruce Springsteen songs. That he was able to make his dream a reality tells you a lot about Scott. Before becoming a Landmark franchisee in 2014, Scott ran a construction company with a team of up to six builders, and was on the tools himself. So he knows all aspects of the building trade. And as someone with his experience and know-how, creative designers and creative clients are still what inspire him the most. Even when we asked Scott about his dream alternative career, it wasn't very alternative at all. 'Unsure, as long as it's in the building industry,' he said. For some people, it's just in their DNA.

Shaun McKay

New Homes Consultant

Shaun McKay is your no-nonsense guy who knows precisely what he wants and gets straight to it — which you need if you're a professional surfer. Shaun isn't a pro, but he would be if he could be, emulating his biggest inspiration, US legend Kelly Slater. 'When I retire my wife and I will have continuous holidays travelling around New Zealand in a camper van, and have a small accommodation business,' he says. Sounds fantastic. For now, they are building their dream home, so Shaun knows intimately what the whole process is like. Before joining Landmark in 2017, Shaun was a builder, so knows the industry inside and out. Which is probably why he says his dream client is someone with an unlimited budget. As far as making the most of life goes, Shaun appreciates the simple things. A bottle of Steinlager, a small flat white, a dream holiday anywhere there's a beach with some sun. Sometimes simple definitely is best.

Melissa Newton

New Home Consultant

Melissa Newton doesn't have to think too hard about her dream house — because she's living in it. What's more, she only finished building it in February. So when it comes to helping a client build their dream home, Melissa has fresh experience. Which is why she knows the best client is easygoing and lets Landmark do the heavy lifting. 'I enjoy every build that Landmark does and treat it as I would my own,' Melissa says, and it's so true. Melissa shares her home with her husband and three teenagers, as well as two Staffordshire terriers and one Devon Rex cat. She adores her children, but still, she also knows how to relax. Her dream holiday is lying on a beach on a tropical island; and her dream alternative career? 'A holiday reviewer with all expenses paid.' We can imagine it too. Wherever Melissa might end up in the world, she's sure to be having fun. 'I haven't laughed so hard since I watched Bohemian Rhapsody with some girlfriends after a couple of wines,’ she admits to us. ‘I could not stop laughing at those teeth.'

    A big thank you to Kezia who we know went well beyond her role to source a number of extras so we had exactly what we wanted and to you Scott. We know you did your very best throughout the project, gave up much of your time and went the extra mile for us. We appreciate that you took it upon yourself to undertake so many hidden extras to make the house what it is. It certainly felt like home from the day we moved in.
    Once again thank you and your team so very much”
