About Kiri James, Christchurch South Regional Manager


Born and bred in Christchurch, Kiri brings years of sales, management and commercial cleaning experience to CrestClean.

She has most recently been the Regional Sales Manager for the South Island at Kimberly-Clark and, prior to that, she was the Sales and Marketing Manager at Deep South Ice Cream. She has spent six years in the service industry, with four of those years in a Business Development role for a large commercial cleaning organisation.

This has provided her with a sound understanding of what is required to be successful in the industry. CrestClean’s great reputation and opportunities for growth were some of the key factors that drew her to the role of Regional Manager for Christchurch South.

Among her franchisees, Kiri likes to emphasise the power of positive communication. “It’s important to let people know when they’re doing a good job. That’s what keeps them motivated.”

Married for over 20 years, Kiri has two athletic children who play “every sport you can name,” so she spends a lot of free time cheering from the sidelines. Kiri also serves on her school’s PTA and the local netball committee and when she can get away, it’s to the family bach in Glentunnel.
