Cie Komene

Pyrotechnics Production & Logistics Manager

Cie has the all-important role of coordinating Howard & Sons Pyrotechnics projects from start to finish. Cie’s tasked with managing a clients pyrotechnic project ensuring the client is provided with a full turnkey solution and they can be assured all elements of the job are completed with such efficiency and professionalism.

Through her 10 years at Howard & Sons, Cie has worked in and out of the office to be trained up in all aspects of pyrotechnic management and now is a fully licensed Chief Pyrotechnician. Cie is shooting her way up to be a Master Pyrotechnician, at which time we might need to think of a new appropriate title for her to hold that well earned position.

Cie favorite part of her job is seeing the amazing children’s reaction to the displays she produces, which in turn put a smile on the client’s faces.

Cie comes into the Howard & Sons family from her own huge family, with a New Zealand Maori father and an Aussie mum, she is oldest of 5 children, has 3 nieces and 5 nephews, over 50 first cousins, over 30 aunties and uncles. Giving her the perfect experience for the ‘pyro mother’ role that she plays for the 120+ pyro crew and 400 odd clients that she looks after all year round.

When Cie is not aligning all the pyrotechnic stars she enjoys movies, reading, cooking (especially desserts), playing with her nieces and nephews at the park, travelling and seems to always wear black in weeks leading up to the All Black v Wallabies rugby test matches.
