Meet The Team

rowan
Rowan Murphy

Rowan is a New Zealand-registered and licensed electrician who has a broad experience within the electrical trade. Along with his electrical trade qualification, he has gained a certificate in Lighting Design from Massey University. He has a particular interest in lighting systems and a passion for helping homeowners optimise their lighting plans.

As a busy father of 4, Rowan has less time for the surfing he used to indulge in. These days, he can be found surfing the internet instead, searching for that elusive perfect homebrew recipe.

Elise Murphy

The other half of Murphy Electrical, Elise can be found managing the office and operating the phone. Along with the accounts and invoicing, Elise takes care of strategy, marketing and HR.

When she is not at the computer or taking care of the smallest Murphys, Elise can be found living the good life with her chickens, sheep, and optimistic vegetable garden.

Saua Leaupepe

Saua joined the team in April 2014 after completing his pre-apprenticeship course at MIT. He is working towards his National Certificate in Electrical Engineering, after which he’ll be able to register as an electrician. Saua balances his academic training with the labouring and assistant electrician work he carries out on site.

A keen sportsman, you can still see Saua in action on the rugby fields of Auckland.
