Meet the Champion-Samuels Whanau

Mon, September 06, 2021

We like to think of the Armourguard team as being one big whānau but working here is literally a family affair for some. Sherry Champion-Samuels and her husband Kim Samuels both work as a casual Security Officers in Wellington. They both have main jobs in other industries but do a bit extra at Armourguard to top up their incomes over the summer, so they can enjoy skiing in the winter.

Last year they were joined by their daughter Morgan (also known as Rhianna), after she finished her degree. Morgan works flexible part-time hours as a Security Officer.
Sherry says the family had not intended to work together; it just happened that way.

“Working together is great because it’s easy to co-ordinate, we keep an eye out for each other and back each other up. We have a friendly competition on to see who can confiscate the most booze per shift!”

Sherry notes the family was asked early on whether they thought they would act professionally if someone gave one of them a hard time. That was put to the test when a drunk patron got aggressive to Rhianna. Sherry was quick to provide back-up but did that in a professional way without flying into over-protective mother mode!
