Meet the team


Glenn Skinner

My background in the plumbing and roofing industries goes back to my employment as a sales rep initially, then later sales and marketing management, for a number of companies, spanning a 25 year period.

In 2001 we began Orion, initially as a distributor of pumps for White International, then gradually expanding our range of products and suppliers, to include pipe fittings and bladder tanks. We continue today to look to expand our product range, our customer base and our markets.


Lesley Skinner

I am married to Glenn and we have three adult sons and two daughters in-law. I am a Registered Nurse and worked at Auckland Hospital for many years.  Most of the previous work I have done has been using my nursing training such as working for Med Lab and Tutoring in Schools First Aid and Health with Red Cross.

The last two years I have worked at Orion working in Customer Services with Greg, being part of the promotional team, providing material for our reps.  It has been interesting doing a different type of work and watching Orion grow in the last two years.


Greg Skinner

I have been with Orion since 2005, helping the business grow over the years.

After graduating with a communications degree in 2003, I pursued various roles within the publishing industry, mostly within customer relations.

Since joining Orion, I have enjoyed my time here, in particular the people involved, both staff and customer base, which represent some of the most interesting people in New Zealand.


Brian Schipper

I contract to ORION to repair pumps and to do pump build ups.  As well as my knowledge in repair and servicing, I also have certification which qualifies me as a Registered Electrical Service Technician.

Because of my great service ethic, many plumbers and general consumers are now bringing me their problems with different types and brands of pumps to solve. They always leave with a good result and solution to their particular problem.
