Spotlight on Marlene Trigg
Marlene Trigg is the woman behind the scenes at Trigg Construction. Based at Trigg HQ, Marlene is always ready with a friendly greeting on the phone or at the door, or a freshly brewed coffee. There you’ll find her quietly oiling the wheels of a rapidly growing business and taking the lead on financial administration and office management. Darrell and Marlene founded Trigg in 1993, and together they have built a small family business into one of Northland’s largest independently owned commercial construction operations.
The business keeps Team Trigg pretty busy. But when they do get the opportunity, Marlene and Darrell love to travel the world, climbing stairs for charity, supporting each other’s endeavours and exploring new places – memories made all the sweeter when daughter Amy can join them. Back home, Marlene enjoys getting outdoors fishing and hiking or curling up indoors with a good read.
