The Team

OUR STORY

The Haufano brothers' passion to help others "unleash their greatness" is mostly influenced by their parents who taught their seven children to pursue education because it would lead to a better future.
Inspired by their parents’ encouragement and work ethic, the Haufano brothers pursued years of education until they both received their Masters Degrees.


After University, Pasi went on to pursue a sales and marketing career in one of New Zealand's largest beverage companies, while being acknowledged as one of the top performing sales people in the country. Eventually he and his wife Sandra founded a design marketing business and an educational contracting business, Zeducation.

Kalolo went on to pursue an accounting career and worked for one of the world’s biggest accounting firms as a financial auditor. He then went on to work as a Partner Consultant, training hundreds of accountants, bookkeepers, and small business owners around Aotearoa about the value of cloud accounting software.

In addition, both Haufano brothers lived in America (Texas and California) for several years where they engaged in voluntary service in the community. Both also had the opportunity to lead hundreds of other volunteers from other parts of the world. This is where they also further developed their passion to train, coach and educate communities and families.

Fast forward to now, Pasi and Kalolo felt inspired to join forces and evolve Zeducation, thus enabling them to enter the workplace training sector to help address some of the challenges that employers and employees face.

With over 15+ years of combined education and business leadership experience, and having taught hundreds of students, they now come together for a common purpose to help others unleash their greatness.

Kalolo

CO-FOUNDER & DIRECTOR

Kalolo has always had a love for teaching others to live their best lives. One of his mantras to educational learning is to “see others not as they are; but as they can become.” Seeing students apply their newfound knowledge from class into their lives is what keeps his teaching passion alive.
 
With his years of experience in the accounting and tech industry, he has a particular passion for financial literacy. It is a topic that is heavily discussed as something that is not taught to many at a young age and he is willing to do his part to positively impact this important cause.

Outside of Zeducation, Kalolo enjoys playing the guitar, working out at the gym and spending time with friends and family, particularly his young nieces and nephews.
