Stuart Cheeseman has recently joined the team at The Vines in Bethlehem, bringing a unique wealth of experience to the aged care sector in Tauranga.
Having spent much of his career establishing and managing various retirement villages throughout New Zealand, Stu is excited to be relocating to the sunny Bay of Plenty and taking on the position of general manager at The Vines.
“It’s an exciting move for me,” he says. “The Bay is a stunning place to live and everyone has been extremely welcoming. I’m passionate about what I do, and I’m mostly looking forward to getting know everyone more personally and discovering where I can add real value.
“The team from Classic Builders, who are building the homes here, are very passionate and it’s exciting to be a part of the vision for The Vines.”
When he’s not at work, you’ll find Stu and his lady Ruth renovating. Together they’re doing up the family home, which keeps them busy on the weekends.
Working alongside Stu is Julie Bason, who’s been with The Vines from day one. “There’s something special about being involved right from the get-go,” says Julie.
“I feel an overwhelming sense of pride seeing what we’ve created within the village, and I love welcoming new residents in and seeing the quality of life it brings them.”
Outside of The Vines, Julie loves spending time with family and friends. She’s a nifty quilter and loves spending her spare time crafting and creating.
If you find yourself passing by The Vines at Bethlehem, call into their showhome, say hello and enjoy a tour. It’s a beautiful village and they’d love nothing more than to show you around.
