Derek Finnigan - Managing Director

Derek Finnigan

Derek joined Cemac Wellington back in 1985 as a Quantity Surveying Cadet. He transferred to Auckland to run the fitout team in 1987.  In 1993 the opportunity arose to purchase the Auckland business from Carter Holt Harvey, and so along with business partner Owen Noonan the business became a privately owned company again. Derek has extensive Commercial Interiors experience. His non-adversarial approach to projects, helps ensure a team approach for all parties involved, and works on the belief that good relationships within a contract are the key to success.

Dereck Waar - Fitout manager

I grew up in South Africa, Cape town, in 1999 I started my career in the fit out sector as a carpenter for a national fit out company and through hard work and determination with in 5 years I managed to work myself in a managerial position running the Western Cape division of the business. In 2013 was given an opportunity to open my own fit out company, due to my strengths in relationship building, planning and a very hands on approach I was able to create very successful small to medium fit out business with in the Western Cape. Subsequently myself and family relocated to New Zealand where I was very fortunate to be given the opportunity in running Cemac Commercial interiors. I believe that the key to a successful fit out contract revolves around good relationships, trust and forward planning.
