New appointment a first, says Doherty

A daughter of Taupo farmers and an ex-schoolteacher has become the first female sales rep in the NZ earthmoving attachment industry, says Doherty Couplers & Attachments

Chrissy Breidahl

Raised on a farm with four brothers, Christine (Chrissy), was exposed to fishing, hunting, motorbikes, go-karts, and always wanted to race her brothers and envied what they did, eventually demanding her father that she stop Brownies and join Scouts instead.

Adulthood saw her transition into teaching in Whanganui, setting up a hunting lodge, and bringing up a young family of three. Moving to Tauranga, she studied psychology prior to securing a service-based job with a construction-based company before joining Dulux in her first sales role.

"I really enjoyed the people I was surrounded with and got on well with everyone," says Chrissy. Five years later, Chrissy has moved across to the world of machinery attachments, joining the Doherty team as NZ Sales, looking after the Bay of Plenty & South Region.

"I’m really enjoying the culture at Doherty Attachments and all my customers have been a dream to work with."
