Nick Paris is a Certifying Plumber, Gasfitter and Drainlayer. He did his apprenticeship through his father’s company in the late 1980s.
“Plumbing is in my blood. Having spent every school holiday working for my dad, I knew what I was getting into when I decided to make it my career, and it was a decision I’ve never looked back on.”
In addition to his technical expertise, Nick obtained a business degree from Auckland University and has over 15 years of experience in senior marketing management roles with companies such as Marley NZ, Caroma NZ and NRM/Tegel Foods.
In 2023, he completed an 11-month Sirdar Applied Directorship Programme through the Skills Consulting Group, further honing his leadership skills.
Nick and his wife Sarah started Plumbing Today in Auckland in 2009 and focus on new high-end residential dwellings and some general maintenance.
As a newly elected Board member with Master Plumbers, Nick is particularly interested in the significance of the Government’s transition to a net zero carbon economy by 2050, and what renewable gases, such as biogas and hydrogen mean to gasfitters in the near future.
Master Plumbers is actively advocating for practical training and robust standards for gasfitters in the use of renewable gases and Nick is very keen to be involved in this process on behalf of our members.
Accepting this process may well be a long journey, but Nick is keen to knuckle down and work with the other Board members to achieve the outcomes sought across the wide range of advocacy projects and Board objectives on behalf of the membership.
