Zac Haumaha – Business Consultant
Zac has a background in engineering and has been involved in designing several key projects in New Zealand.
Zac worked at Wellington Cable Car Ltd for over a decade and completed his engineering qualifications during this time. He was instrumental in designing one of the early prototype Protection Cabinets that was introduced in 2012 and contributed to a later version, which went on to receive an Engineering Excellence Award at the Electrical Engineers’ Association Conference in 2014.
Zac was also the key person involved in the decommissioning of the Wellington Trolley Bus Network. He produced over 90 plans of the network for contractors tasked with the decommissioning. These plans were used in the tender process to determine the price of the contract.
Zac has also been involved in several community projects like the Kapiti Tramway Museum, a volunteer organisation of tram enthusiasts. He designed plans for the service and maintenance schedules for their tram network, to help maintain the operation for the next 50 years. Zac is also the Chairman of Te Kohanga Reo o Ngalo, an organisation aimed at maintaining and strengthening Maori language and philosophy.
Zac has an analytical mindset and is a whiz when it comes to Vectorworks software. He’s able to identify problems in designs and suggest solutions. He’s a member of Engineering New Zealand and is working towards his Chartered Professional status.

Pip Best – Accounts & Director
Bright and outgoing, Pip enjoys dealing with people and welcomes the variety associated with her customer service role. Before joining Megabits she worked as a veterinary nurse in a rural practice however, once she joined our team, it didn’t take her long to adapt to her new profession. Coming from a ‘computer mad’ family, she quickly became proficient at using Vectorworks and Cinema 4D, and now has a wealth of practical knowledge to offer our customers.
A team player in the truest sense, Pip seeks to create an inclusive environment that encourages customer interaction and says a bonus in helping customers is the insight she is gaining into the world of architecture, landscaping and design.
Jeremy Best – Customer & Technical Support
Rejoining Megabits in March 2015, Jeremy Best draws on his innate practical bent and serendipitously gained experience in advising and assisting Vectorworks clients.
A second generation member of Best whanau who help make up the Megabits team, Jeremy’s role is customer service and technical support.
After leaving school, he enjoyed a lengthy stint in the retail sector before changing career direction. At the age of seven, he explains, he had wanted to be an inventor. “I fell in love with small improvements.”
He had a year working at Megabits and then went on to hone his practical skills by studying for a Certificate in Mechanical Engineering at AUT and later progressing to a Bachelor of Product Design.
After graduating, Jeremy worked for four years at Apartmento, specialists in in-house design and the manufacture of quality contemporary furniture. “Doing design work and problem-solving,’ he says of that time, “I really sank my teeth into Vectorworks, drawing up rooms, locating furniture and rendering to recreate life-like images on screen for clients.” Jeremy brings that customer focus to Megabits. He also enjoys working alongside wife Pip, the current director at Megabits.
