Our Team

We are passionate about getting out and experiencing the outdoors and all that Mother Nature can throw at us. We often find ourselves in the most unexpected of circumstances, testing the gear that we supply to the limit. We are committed to providing life enhancing gear, toys and equipment to keep you safe, comfortable and allow you to experience the outdoors at a higher level.

Clint Atkins

Managing Director

With distinguished careers as a ski bum and a MTB racer, in 1999 I made the choice to create Allsports Distribution after an awesome MTB in the Redwoods in Rotorua. The philosophy behind Allsports was to supply quality outdoor products and equipment that would enhance the users experience and their performance. Allsports started with Marmot and has grown since then to include a number of top brands - the philosophy however remains the same.

Of the extensive range of products we supply, the following are my personal favourites: GU Roctane Energy Gels for fuelling my adventures; Marmot Kompressor Speed Hydration Pack, Marmot Impact Shorts, Marmot Interval SS Shirt for running and Marmot Vertex Short for mountain biking.

Dan Te Huia

HEAD & Marmot Brand Manager

I started with Allsports back at the end of 2002 and am now the longest serving employee. Before joining the company I was a student studying for a diploma in Business Management.

Allsports offers a wide range of products that allows entry into a large number of interesting industries, meaning new customers and a wide range of activities to enjoy. Not to mention the great team I work with and world leading brands.

Outside of work I enjoy mountain biking, skiing, fishing, running, cooking and enjoying good times with family and friends. I've travelled to many parts of the world and have enjoyed many experiences, yet I still find myself grounded by the beautiful country in which we live.

I live in Taupo with my partner Amy and our three little girls, Emma, Annabelle and Sophie. Taupo is in the heart of the North Island with so much to do here, so why not do it with the biggest toy box around in Allsports.

My favourite pieces of clothing/equipment that we sell are the Marmot Quasar Jacket, Marmot Essence Jacket, HEAD Venturi Skis and GU Watermelon Chomps.

Chris Bignell

Inventory Control and Distribution Specialist

I joined Allsports in August 2012 after working in a fine wine shop for eight years and am thoroughly enjoying the transition.

I have a passion for the outdoors and love anything to do with hunting or fishing, however, fly fishing is my obsession.

Currently I am enjoying the Marmot 2P Traillight Tent, being light-weight it goes everywhere with me.

Craig Brain

Hoka One One & Ahnu Brand Manager

I joined Allsports in May 2013 having previously owned a retail store in Cambridge. It was there that I first developed an affinity with the brands that we distribute.

Outside of work my interests are anything sport-related - whether it be watching or participating. 

My favourite piece of clothing/equipment that we sell is the Ahnu Kirkham's. I got these on my second day of work here and wore them for 12+ hours, 5 days straight at an expo. Right out of the box these were so amazingly comfortable and they've rarely been off my feet since.

Renee Tukua

Customer Service - New Zealand Orders

I joined Allsports in January 2013 after moving to Taupo from Perth, where I managed a netball Cafe and played mum to my two boys Taine and Kalan. Allsports is a great place to work - with lots of quality products and great people!

I am looking forward to entering the Taupo half Marathon for the third time in 2014 and may even attempt the Mokau Beach Marathon :-)

Outside work I enjoy lots of family time at the lake or camping out in our Blackwolf 240 Plus! I also have a passion for creating cake art!

My favourite product would have to be my Marmot Variant Jacket and I can't forget GU Energy Espresso Love Gels!
