Richard Smart


I find helping people extremely satisfying, whether it’s advising them on a new insurance policy, an updated KiwiSaver plan or a mortgage referral.

I love meeting really great people along the way and some have even become close friends.

“I seriously love my role – it doesn’t even feel like a job because I love meeting new people and every day is different.”

A little bit about myself

I love spending time with my family, particularly my new daughter – I can’t get enough of her! My passion for health and fitness means I’m always putting aside some time for exercise, even if it’s just a good run on the beach with the family dog. I also have a penchant for real estate and am currently renovating old beach baches.

My professional history:

I’ve had a career in corporate sales/leadership roles during the last 15 years with my last role leading a national sales team for Dexion NZ Ltd. My partner and I went for the sea change and moved from the hustle and bustle of Auckland to Tauranga in 2014 where we purchased a large cafe in the burbs. After 15 months of seriously hard slog in the hospitality industry, we soon worked out we had not created the lifestyle we longed for so we sold up and I joined Haven as an adviser.

My favourite claim story

I’ve had a couple of claims go through for clients who had disabilities that meant they couldn’t work for an extended period of time. It was great for them to get the support they needed through their insurance policy.
