Brenda de Ruiter

Owner / Branch Manager

A little about me

As Co-owner and Branch Manager at REAL, Brenda tackles a great deal of operational functions with dexterity and leadership. No contract goes across her desk without efficient execution and care.

Often the instigator of our social shindigs, Brenda enjoys bringing the team together and setting the pace for what a work family should be.

Having ditched the Dutch in 1986 with her husband (REAL’s Licensee, Steve), she possesses many skills considering the amount of professions she’s mastered. A trained Hairdresser, Restaurateur, Baker and Promotional Marketer are just a few to name.

She’s also an incredible Mum to her son Mikey and daughter Debbie, as well as the coolest ‘Oma’ to her Grandson and admirer, Mason.

When Brenda isn’t in the office whipping the show into shape, she can be found out on the boat, soaking up all the incredible scenery and magnificence the Bay of Islands has to offer.
