The Hidden Warrior Team

Collectively the HW senior leadership team has over 100 collective years of event ownership, management and participation. Read on  for an insight into the team that will bring to life the most amazing event experiences on the planet !!

Peter Smith CEO (MBA – CPA)

Smithy as he’s affectionately known should be the boring accountant every business needs……NOT! Smithy has personally managed one of Australia’s Major Sporting Events, created major fundraising events for community groups & participated countless events with a solo & team focus.

When not playing MD, Pete can be found searching for big waves to surf. His amazing focus, attention to detail and drive enables him to squeeze more into a working week than the average mortal would   even contemplate.

Paul Kingston - Event Concepts

Paul ”Kingo” Kingston or as we call him course designer to the stars. Kingo has so many event km’s under his belt if he was a horse he’d be put to pasture, but he ain’t. If our obstacles hurt, curse him, if the obstacles are too high, curse Kingo.

So we send Kingo out to scope locations and dream up challenges, if he is not scheming challenges he is pursuing his love of Multi Stage Mountain Bike racing and bizzare multiday unsupported challenges . About as popular in a Boardroom as a shark at a swim meet , you want to meet with him? GPS co-ordinates will be supplied , go find him !!

Rick Munro – Event Concepts

Rick the Gen Y representitve of the leadership team, brings youthful exuberance & an event specific education background. If it aint cool and cyber savy rick won’t give it the tick! Rick has spent his time sinking his teeth into any event he can, from Tri’s to MTB events in Australia & around the world he brings the extra 20% to the team…….and as all team players know that extra 20% is what makes a winning team, a champion team. When not fulfilling his role in the daily operations at Warrior HQ you will find Rick the master bike mechanic, up to his elbows in grease fine tuning his extensive mountain bike collection.

Carina the Ballerina

Well Carina is not really a ballerina but she can dance around  our media needs with ease.  When she is not slicing ,dicing and editing the mountain of video and photo footage our events produce she is pursuing her other love , Sushi . Lunchtime at Warrior HQ we are  regularly treated  to Carina’s banquet exploit’s  giving us that vital fuel required to dream up insane obstacles  and make them real !

JK

JK is our web developer and responsible for the online environment you our customers play in. JK regularly shuts Warrior Staff out of his office as we are constantly bombarding him a plethora of bizzare web design ideas bordering on the ridiculous. He loves it, we love it so please give us feedback on his creations.

ST

ST is our builder bringing Kingo’s creations to life. Without his skills the walls might wobble and you may rip down the rope wall, but with ST on the case we think not. ST rocks ! He is big and so are the obstacles that he brings to life so that you , our customers, have the most enjoyable and challenging obstacle experience on the planet . Like any good Aussie tradesman ST  lives on a staple diet of meat pies and Big M’s (and more recently, Sushi !) , which enables this man mountain to direct our formibable obstacle construction team.

JR

Admin extraordinaire, nothing too hard, no task to small, JR ensures the office operates with smooth and efficient precision. When  event capacity has been filled and  race day nears , JR comes into his own. Office mayhem is directed in a manner so efficient that no member at Warrior HQ misses a beat knowing that JR is at the helm. When JR is not co-ordinating traffic in Warrior admin he is tending  his beloved Bonsai  collection and sampling partner Corina’s sushi masterpieces.
