Jon Whitlow

General Manager

Kataia-born but not Kaitaia-bound, General Manager Jon Whitlow started his electrical career in Auckland before moving down to Christchurch in 2009.

Over the years, Jon has been involved with multiple large projects in Christchurch and has been instrumental in the success of NEXA. He handles most of the behind-the-scenes work and ensures that our client’s experience is smooth, satisfying and second-to-none.

While not at work, he enjoys spending time with family, as well as keeping fit and playing the odd round of golf when time permits.

Michael Miles

Contracts Manager

Michael started his career in lighting design before becoming interested in building automation and KNX, which has given him a great knowledge and passion for lighting and building controls.

Michael works with our clients to tailor solutions based on their requirements. He also oversees our projects from the start through to completion: he’s the guy ensuring that work is on time and on budget.

Outside of work, he enjoys spending time with his young family, as well as watching and playing a number of sports, his favourites being ice hockey and rugby.

Liviu Nicolaie

Systems Integrator

There isn’t a lot Liviu hasn’t done in his career. He began his career as an electrical engineer in Romania but found a new home in Christchurch after moving to New Zealand with his family.

While he continued his work initially as a local switchboard manufacturer, he has since then become NEXA’s go-to for the design and implementation of our projects and specializes in control of commercial buildings.

Outside of work, Liviu is known as “sensei” to his karate students, whom he trains to an elite level at his own dojo.
