Kevin Franks - Success Partner

Kevin is a resident of Timaru, who brings more than 20 years of business and project management experience to the company. He understands the technical aspects, as well as the commercial reasons, for company decisions and how they are derived. He is passionate about adding value to all his customers’ businesses as a partner in success with BSP.

Kevin has worked as a tradesman, plant operator and plant manager. This has given him a unique understanding of the differing personalities and challenges in small and conglomerate organisations. He holds a National Certificate in Project Management, a National Certificate in Workplace Health and Safety, and an Unlimited Boiler Operation Certificate this enables him to combine hands-on experience with his large body of knowledge.

He thrives on a challenge and looks at each task with a ‘how can I make this better from the status quo?’ attitude. He will not give up until all avenues are explored and either accepted or dismissed.

Kevin has worked in the power generation, heavy engineering and marine fields both in New Zealand, Australia and Asia for New Zealand Electricity Department, Carrington Slipways, Robin Dredging, Sembawang Engineering, Siemens and Deutsche Babcock, to name a few. During this time, he has gained extensive knowledge in business and project management, being responsible for projects from simple plant alterations, to the design of specialised plants for a specific function, to large international turn key projects.
