Neil – General Manager
Neil Pritchard has been in the industry since 2005. Scottish by birth and with a background in accounting and management, Neil has developed a keen interest in the collision repair industry and enjoys meeting with members and stakeholders. He is a keen golfer and likes to cook.
Adrienne – Association Manager
Adrienne Richardson started with the Collision Repair Association back in 2001. Over the years there has been a lot of changes within the industry which makes working for CRA never boring!! Every day there is something different to deal with and a few good challenges along the way which makes it exciting.
Other than being a ‘petrol head’ and enjoying watching car and motorbike racing and attending speedway meetings, Adrienne also has a Harley which she has ridden through parts of USA, Canada, Alaska and of course NZ. Also being a self-confessed ‘gym bunny’ this plays a big part to her early morning ritual.
Adrienne is passionate about the collision repair industry and looks forward to seeing what the future holds.
Erin – Office Administrator
Erin McLean has been with the CRA since 2002 when she moved from Wellington to Ngaruawahia. For a number of years the role also included the I-CAR NZ administration work. She also works part-time in the hospitality industry for a catering and events company.
When time permits Erin enjoys being outdoors, the daily walking of her dog and a good book.
Alison – Office Administrator
Alison Henry started with the Collision Repair Association late 2016 in the I-CAR NZ course administrator position.
She enjoys assisting repairers in the collision repair industry to achieve their training goals and better themselves. It is rewarding seeing so many certificates leaving the office.
Outside of work, Alison spends a lot of time involved in roller derby, competing and training. After many years playing the violin is now finding her way around the Banjo. She loves mucking around in the garden with the dog or doing something crafty.
Filka– Office Administrator
Filka Oliver is our newest team member, starting in March 2019.
She has found working for the CRA very rewarding and challenging and is looking forward to getting to know more members during her time here.
With two teenagers and a dog at home, a lot of time is spent with family and time at the beach is a bonus when they can get away. They are a Liverpool supporting family and a lot of time is spent watching the kids and hubby playing football, reading is a passion and going to the gym is also something she likes to do whenever she gets a chance.
