Meet the team behind Create Renovations

Our people

From humble beginnings in 2010, we have grown over the years, to boast a strong team, who pride ourselves on quality workmanship and great teamwork, here in Tāmaki Makaurau.

Hi, I’m Cameron

Owner and Sales Director.
Qualified and Licensed Building Practitioner.

Cameron founded Create Renovations in 2010 and is proud to still be offering top-notch renovations, around Auckland.

He boasts extensive building knowledge and with over 20 years of experience, he can provide you with honest and well-thought-out advice. Cam specialises in home renovations and has won several awards for his high standard of work.

In his spare time, you’ll find him enjoying time with his family, working on projects at home – most recently building yard games for the kids to enjoy, and out on the water.

Andrew Thompson

Project Manager and Sales Consultant. 
Qualified and Licensed Building Practitioner.

Andrew has been building for more than two decades and we’re yet to find a problem he can’t solve! Whether he’s helping our clients to navigate council planning or overseeing multiple projects, he’s always on the ball.

When he’s not on the clock, Andy can be found on the sports fields with his kids, or fishing in the Hauraki Gulf (just don’t ask him for his secret fishing spot!)

Jade Hernon

Accounts Manager.

Much more than her title suggests, Jade helps us keep things running smoothly behind the scenes. She’s the smiling voice when you phone our office, and you may hear from her throughout your project.

Outside of work, Jade enjoys walking along the beach with her pug Toby, going for hikes and exploring.

Bruce Hawthrone

Foreman and Qualified Builder.

With over 25 years of building experience, Bruce is often the man in charge on the ground.

Bruce has a real eye for detail and has done well to pass this skill on to others on the team. He is a fantastic people person, known for building a fantastic rapport with clients.

As a car enthusiast, Bruce enjoys tinkering with his Mustang and trips to Waiheke with his wife, Irene.

Mike Cope

Foreman and Senior Qualified Builder.

Mike joined us as an apprentice and has worked his way up to the top. He now runs some of our largest project sites and his attention to detail is next level.

Known for being a genuinely nice guy, when a renovation is complete, clients often say they will miss him being around.

In his spare time, Mike enjoys mountain biking and boxing. A true sportsman, he is also an avid rugby league and Warriors supporter.

Mark Message

Foreman/ qualified and LBP builder.

Mark has run many sites for Create renovations and has excellent building knowledge,  has been building for 30 plus years and always has a soft spot for our customers.

Mark enjoys riding at Woodhill on his mountain bike and playing pool.

Great with the kids! Exceptional quality!

“The team at Create was wonderful to deal with, so accommodating of the family remaining in the home throughout the extensive reno, fabulous in dealing with the kids, clean language & behaviour.

Our chippies had meticulous attention to detail, and exceptional standards of quality, and we’d have no hesitation in recommending Create to anyone else wanting to transform their house into a home.”
