• Kevin Best
    Managing Director

    Kevin Best
    Kevin Best is the founding Director of Efinity. Kevin formed Efinity as a result of his experiences from implementing a website solution while he was the Sales & Marketing Manager for Genesis Energy. The Genesis experience left him believing there was a gap in the market for a specialist web services company that specifically focussed on business outcomes rather than just technology or design. Apart from his marketing role at Genesis, Kevin has been a business manager at Powerco Ltd where he was responsible for the development & implementation of the successful Home Power Prepayment Metering System and the Energy Centre remote kiosk-based transaction system. Outside of technology Kevin can be found at various football venues around the region, either watching his children, playing or coaching the next generation of wannabe All Whites.
