Our Team

Storm Waters - Director


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.

Leigh Johnson – Project Manager (Civil Works)


Leigh came to Storms Contracting with 35 years experience of project managing large-scale subdivisions and infrastructure throughout Australasia.  He has returned to New Zealand with a wealth of knowledge both in earthworks and GPS systems to take on the job of Project Manager for all subdivision work for Storms Contracting.  Leigh was born and bred in Pauanui and enjoys both the lifestyle and unique work that the Coromandel offers.
