Rob Cameron is self-driven and his love of butchery began, from growing up in a hard-working, farming environment, in Tiniroto, Gisborne.
His passion and drive to prove that it is possible to produce award winning products and top quality customer service from a small locally owned business, is a goal shared amongst all members all of his team.
Rob was awarded Apprentice of the Year and Maori Trade, Trainee of the Year for butchery in 1995. Rob then went on to win the Young Butcher of the Year award at 22 and then became a tutor, teaching butchery at WELTEC for 3 years.
Rob then used his skills and knowledge to manage and grow several butcheries, before creating Cameron Harrison.
Rob opened his first Cameron Harrison butchery in Tawa, in August 2009 and has since gone on to win over 20 awards over the last 6 years, winning an award every time he has entered a competition. He has since expanded his butcheries to Upper Hutt, Lower Hutt, Ngaio and Seatoun, with the plan of expanding further.
He enjoys growing the company and having a flexible management role that ensures he can provide first-hand, on the job training and mentoring to each and every staff member. He prides himself in being innovative and maintaining Cameron Harrison’s position, in the forefront of their industry.
When he is not working in one of his stores, you can find Rob either hunting up home in Tiniroto, Gisborne or hitting a bag or two down at Wainuiomata Boxing Club, a club that he founded and manages.
