We are pleased to advise that Kate Parsons and Sue Tindal will join the Company as Non-Executive Directors from 1 January 2017.

“We have been on the lookout for appropriate individuals to bring onto Mainfreight’s Board for some time”, says Bruce Plested. “We are delighted that Kate and Sue have accepted these appointments, and we look forward to the energy and skills they will bring to their roles”. 

Kate Parsons has over 20 years’ finance experience in a number of industries both in New Zealand and overseas. Kate’s passion for high tech, high growth New Zealand success stories, led her to CFO roles at Endace, PowerbyProxi and most recently Compac Sorting Equipment; positions which have given her extensive experience in steering companies through growth and change.
