Goleman™ Was Founded In 1993

Peter Goleman immigrated to New Zealand from Bulgaria in early 1991 with the aim of starting a better life. He brought with him his wife and his two young sons.

Peter soon came up with the innovative idea of using rope access instead of scaffolding for undertaking exterior building maintenance. This led to the formation of Goleman™ in 1993.

Armed with a constant smile, broken English and a winning attitude, Peter Goleman set out to solve problems, think outside of the square, and give people more than they expected.

Now days Peter takes a back seat, leaving the day to day business operations and management to the next generation of trusted and driven individuals.

Peter’s vision for the company was simple:

To always be honest, transparent and loyal to our customers, employees and suppliers.

To be proactive: “A problem is a solution waiting to be found.”

To always look after customers, employees and suppliers alike, while helping them to achieve their goals.
