Matthew O’Donoghue


I’m Matthew and I’ve been the owner-operator of Southern Heating Fuels Ltd. (SHF) since 1989. I founded Southern Biofuels Ltd. in 2013 and enjoy working to find solutions that really make a difference to my customers. When I’m not working, I enjoy spending time with my grandchildren and sailing whenever I get the chance, with my lovely wife Lisa.

Lisa O’Donoghue


Hi, I’m Lisa and I’m a director of Southern Biofuels. I mainly work behind the scenes to create sustainable solutions for our customers.  I’m married to Matthew and we have a shared passion for sailing and sustainability which is what brought us together.  When I’m not working, I enjoy painting, sailing of course, and I’m a very proud grandmother.

Gerard Clark

General Manager

Hello, I’m Gerard and I’m the General Manager of Southern Biofuels and the Managing Director of Southern Heating Fuels. Previous to these roles, I spent 21 years in the driver licensing sector with 17 years as Manager/ General Manager of NZ Driving Licensing Limited. I’m a bit of an all rounder so you might see me out driving one of our trucks & making deliveries.  Spending quality time with my family and the grandchildren is a high priority for me and gardening, especially tending to my roses, is a passion of mine. If I’m done for the day, I might indulge in a Speights or two.

Jen Clark

Sales Representative and Account Manager

I’m Jen and I’m currently the Sales Representative and Account Manager for both Southern Biofuels and Southern Heating Fuels. I previously worked in the construction sector for just over ten years. When I’m not working I love taking walks with my Samoyed and my Labrador as well as spending time with my family. Traveling is something I particularly enjoy and went on my OE in 2019. I’m very partial to a good Riesling.


Office Administrator

Hi, I’m Sharon, and I’m the office administrator for both Southern Biofuels and Southern Heating Fuels. When you call to place and order I am generally the person you will talk to. My interests include marching, sewing and spending time with my family and three beautiful dogs.
