Our People

The Admin Team

 John Swallow - Managing Director                                    

John began with Cemac in Wellington in 1988 before moving to Christchurch in 1991. The opportunity arose in 1994 to purchase the Christchurch branch of Cemac Commercial Interiors which he has continued to run ever since. 2010 saw John pick up the local Dexion Supply Centre. Following the earthquakes the businesses were forced to move together into one building and have successfully worked in one central building since.

Now, over 30 years on since joining Cemac, John continues to enjoy the challenges in contracting and the building industry offers and looks forward to seeing the company continue to grow.

John is married to Mel and has two children, Jacob and Emily.
