During our 30+ years of operating, we have always enjoyed being able to meet with our clients and create lasting friendships. But we want to make it so that you can also learn more about us as individuals, outside of Oakenhursts four walls. So every two weeks, we will be posting a new ’60 Seconds with…’ article introducing you to one of Oakenhursts many employees.

Gareth Cronk, our General Manager, will be the first to take part in ’60 seconds with…’. Gareth started working here in May 1997, making it 22 years that Gareth has worked here.
