Changes to the New Zealand National Team
After 34 years with Mainfreight Craig Evans, has decided to retire. With Craig leaving the business we have seen a few changes to the New Zealand National Team.
New Zealand Country Manager – Carl George
Carl’s career with Mainfreight spans almost 27 years, during which he has held various sales, branch management and leadership roles, both here and overseas. For the last ten years, he has successfully led our Transport division in New Zealand.
New Zealand Transport National Manager – Nic Kay
Nic began his Mainfreight journey almost 25 years ago with the Warehousing team in Christchurch working in various operational roles. He later moved across to Daily Freight Christchurch where he worked in Sales, moving into Sales Management, and eventually taking over as Branch Manager.
New Zealand Air and Ocean National Manager – Paul Riethmaier
Paul started his Mainfreight journey as a graduate with Owens International Freight Auckland in 2000, working in Sea Export Operations, then moving to sales a few years later as Export Trade Manager for the branch. An OE took Paul to the UK where he continued working in international freight, before returning to New Zealand and Mainfreight in 2006 as Airfreight Sales Manager.
We appreciate all that Craig has achieved for Mainfreight in his 34-year tenure. He leaves the business in a strong position, performing well across all three divisions. We hope you enjoy retirement and spending more time with the family.
Congratulations to Carl, Nic and Paul, we look forward to seeing what 2022 hold for the business in New Zealand.
