Meet Steven Prescott, our Area Manager for Mackenzie District Pools in Twizel and Fairlie. With over 35 years of experience in the aquatics industry, Steven is a passionate and dedicated member of our team.
Steven has been with Belgravia Leisure for three years, overseeing the operations of seasonal pools on New Zealand’s South Island and providing additional lifeguard training. Steven says, “I am meant to be retired, but the industry keeps pulling me back, and I would love to continue with Belgravia Leisure for as long as I can.”
National Operations Manager for New Zealand, Irene Smith, says, “Steve is very well known across the industry in New Zealand. His knowledge of aquatics, pool safety regulations and the evolution of aquatics over the last 35 years means he is a massive asset to the team. We value having him on board and wish him luck at his next competition, the 35km (not a typo) Te Anau to Manapouri race.”
Steven has also competed at the World Masters and holds four gold and one silver in swimming. When he’s not working or competing, Steven enjoys spending time with his wife of 46 years, Fiona, and their two children and three grandchildren.
One of Steven’s highlights of working with Belgravia Leisure is the staff and culture, which makes every day interesting. He also enjoys meeting new people and seeing their improvements in fitness and competencies in the water.
Steven’s passions in life include his family, sports, swimming, and renovating. Swimming keeps him fit while watching sports relaxes him. Renovating provides challenges and rewards when completed, making it an enjoyable hobby.
Belgravia Leisure is fortunate to have Steven as a dedicated member of our team, and we look forward to his continued contributions to our organisation.
