Greg Dykzeul loves his job at NBS, working as the Motueka Branch Manager.
“We’ve got such a great team here – it’s a brilliant culture. Everyone is really focussed on offering our customers a fantastic service,” he says.
Before joining NBS in 2012, Greg worked in insurance, but says he had got to the point where it was time to step up or step out.
Greg started working for NBS, as a personal banker in the Nelson branch. “I didn’t look back from there. More often than not, people need your assistance, so you develop a personal relationship and can make a positive impact on their lives by working alongside them,” he says.
Greg says he loves the way NBS involves itself in the community, much as he does as co-owner of company Nelson Events, which organises sports events across the region. With both he and his wife having full-time day jobs, they take a back seat in running the company.
“We enjoy helping out on the day, and being NBS is the key sponsor of the event volunteers the synergies are strong. It’s great to be part of a company like NBS that gives back so much to the community.”
Perhaps unsurprisingly, Greg has a very active lifestyle, and enjoys getting outdoors in the National Parks across the region, mountain biking and trail running. “We spend a lot of time at Nelson Lakes , where we water ski and paddle board. Our two kids are very active too, so that’s what we spend our weekends doing,” he says.
Otherwise, Greg enjoys chilling out with a book, listening to music or hanging out with his family.
