In April 2018 Dave, Aileen and their family moved from Auckland to take over the ownership of Karamu Holden. It’s become a family affair as Aileen joins Dave and now works in the finance and insurance side of the business.

As a child Dave grew up in the 70’s, a time when oil prices were soaring, unemployment rising and an economic recession to deal with, however despite these challenges we were still a nation that found it easy to laugh at ourselves as we had Fred Dagg who reminded us “she’ll be right”.
