Meet the Team

Pete Wakefield

Pete Wakefield

Owner & Registered Electrician

Pete can be found in the office or out on the tools and occasionally he’s been caught looking for a decent coffee. When he’s not working he likes to spend his time in the mountains teaching his three young children how to ski or chasing them round the garden.

Sonia Wakefield

Sonia Wakefield

Owner & Office Manager

Sonia keeps everything in the office running smoothly and efficiently. She takes care of the systems and processes that ensure all your invoicing and quotes are accurate and prompt every time. When she’s not at the desk she’s busy with three young children. If they’re entertained too then you’ll occasionally find her out skiing, walking with friends or having some quite time reading a book.

Patrick Thomson

Patrick Thomson

Registered Electrician

Patrick is a newly qualified registered electrician based in Christchurch. He completed his apprenticeship with Wakefield Electrical and got some pretty awesome results in his Electrical Registration exams, so big ups to him. When he’s not working you might find him spending time with his partner or looking at his bike eagerly awaiting the reopening of the Christchurch Adventure Park.

Gavin King

Gavin King

Registered Electrician

Gavin is the newest member of the team and a recent import from the West Island (Oz). He is based in Oxford and brings several years of experience to the team having worked for larger and smaller electrical companies over the ditch. He’s here with his family to experience the good rural life and a real winter so he can take his family skiing on the uncrowded slopes of the South Island.

Tristan Lancaster

Tristan Lancaster

Apprentice Electrician

Tristan has recently joined the team and has just started his electrical apprenticeship. A sociable sort, he enjoys interacting with his colleagues and our clients on a day to day basis. Tristan lives in the Darfield area and when he’s not helping out with the family beekeeping business you’ll find him out hunting in the high country.

Diane Mellish

Diane Mellish

Part Time Administrator

Diane is a retired Maths teacher so making sure that all the numbers balance in the accounts is a breeze for her. When she’s not in the office she’s out being a Super Grandma, running, tramping or climbing in the hills or quietly enjoying her garden.
