Our Team

Coming onboard means joining the family

We discovered something. As a group of experienced tradespeople, we noticed the wrath commonly associated with the profession. The unknown around what the finished project might look like, how long the job would take, or even how much it would cost. We didn’t want to be portrayed that way – we’re not like that.

We’re here to be "Yourtradie". But we work hard to be your dedicated single point of contact through the full process.

We know trust is key when it comes to upgrades of the home or business, and it’s this that often holds people back from getting things done, or getting help in managing modern busy lives. Yourtradie takes this concern away, we’re professional experts with a proven track record for extraordinary outcomes.


Lachie Wilkinson

Founder + Project Management

Craft has always been a strong part of Lachie’s ethos and he has vast experience in the building and design work for high-end homes, having worked on building sites from the age of 15. Service is the other side of Lachie’s ethos, he started his own business at age of 25, NZs largest fractional boat ownership program which included managing and maintaining high end boats to an exceedingly high standard. Lachie noticed many commonalities of maintaining these luxury vessels, and the homes and properties of their owners. There was a real need streamlining work, to be done without complication, with professionalism and without ‘surprise’ expenses. And so Yourtradie was born…
