Meet the Bridge It NZ Team

Kim Bevins - Manager

Kim Bevins

As our Business Manager, Kim is heavily involved in our operations and project management. He strives to ensure a culture of continuous improvement so we can deliver the very best projects to our clients.

Kim grew up on a dairy farm in Putaruru and spent 17 years in the Airforce, based mainly at Whenuapai in Auckland. Life outside of work revolves around his four young children. Kim and his wife, Wendy, enjoy spending time at the beach, fishing with their kids and pottering around the house. While he is mad keen on nearly every sport, Kim’s found himself watching more sport than he actually gets to play at the moment.
