Our Directors

The directors of Teak Construction bring a broad range of skills and knowledge to the company. All the directors are shareholders, sharing the same vision for the ongoing expansion and prosperity of the company. They are fully involved with the day-to-day running of projects, providing immediate decisions and personal service.

Wayne Birchall

Managing Director

Wayne started in the construction industry at the age of 18 and gained several decades of experience working in NZ and the UK before joining Teak Construction in 2013.

He brings with him a wealth of experience at all levels of construction companies, from apprentice and foreman, to site manager, construction manager and managing director. His no-nonsense, solutions-focused attitude is a great driver behind Teak’s consistently high quality output.

Outside of work, he’s a die hard fan of Chelsea Football Club.

Stuart Charlton


Stuart worked in the construction industry in New Zealand and overseas for many years before coming to Teak in 2008. His diverse experience has helped Teak secure large projects in several sectors, from government contracts to high rise residential.

His hands-on, relationship focussed approach helps ensure all of Teak Construction’s projects run smoothly and on time.

Outside of work, Stuart enjoys boating, surfing and spending time with his family.

Sam White

Commercial Director

Sam started his career in construction as a roofer in Auckland. He retrained as a quantity surveyor and joined Teak in 2001, back when there were only five people in the office.

He quickly became a director at the age of just 34 after 9 years with the business. Sam is now focussed on improving efficiencies and systems to ensure Teak can continue to deliver high quality projects on time, and on budget. He’s also dedicated to creating an environment where employees can flourish and become masters of their craft.

Outside of work, he’s a keen kiteboarder and loves reeling in big snapper in the Hauraki Gulf.
