Sarah Jamieson was elected to the Master Plumbers, Gasfitters and Drainlayers New Zealand Board in 2022.
Sarah and husband Aaron own and operate BOP Plumbing and Gas, servicing the Bay of Plenty. Their business is built on family values, career progression for the team, and fostering key relationships. Winning the New Zealand Master Plumber of the Year in 2021 is testament to their success.
Sarah says she is passionate about mentoring apprentices to achieve the highest qualification levels. She is also keen to ensure the industry focuses on the importance of quality workmanship, professionalism and innovation.
Women too often go unrecognised for their contribution to the plumbing, gasfitting and drainlaying industry, according to Sarah. She is a firm advocate for women working in our industry and wants to see greater acknowledgement of the important roles they fulfil. She believes the equal partnership she and Aaron have within their business is integral to its success.
The Jamiesons have two sons, Chase (five) and Xavier (four). A favourite family activity is getting away to the beach for some fishing. They also enjoy watching the All Blacks and are big supporters of the Chiefs.
