Storm started out with a lawnmowing round at the age of 9 then progressed on to a bobcat, doing odd jobs for the local landscapers after school at the age of 12 with help from his Mum and Dad. By age 15 he had upgraded to a 3 ton digger and truck and left school to pursue a career in earthmoving. He worked for several large-scale contractors in Auckland before returning to the Coromandel in 1998 when Storms Contracting was born. Storm has built up his company over the last 20+ years from a one-man band to a large team of experienced employees. His passion for earthworks and new-age innovation has meant a steady increase in both the size of the business and the works it is able to achieve.
