Meet Derek - he has been part of the Rockford team as our Maintenance Manager for almost 2 years. There is no job too big for Derek and his cheerful disposition is infectious with colleagues and guests! Here's a little bit more info on Derek and what he does when he's not busy at work.....


Tell us a little about yourself and what you do at Adelaide Rockford

I am 37 years old and have worked as a painter and decorator for the past 17 years and done various other trades through out that time. I have worked at the Rockford for almost 2 years.  I enjoy travelling, going fishing and singing if the chance arrives. I play the piano, have been playing 10 pin bowling for about 6 years and play social tennis once a week


Favourite food?

Hard question as I love food! If had to choose a favourite it would be between Indian and Italian depending on the mood


Favourite things to do on your day off?

I like to go catch up with my friends, family, see movies and go shopping 


Your top travel or holiday tip

Always do some research on the destination before you decide on a date, different weather patterns around the world can put a real damper on your holiday if you end up going during the wet season / monsoon  


Best concert

I went to see Billy Joel and Elton John at the Adelaide Oval in 1998 and it was an amazing concert
