Lisa started with the Mainfreight group in 2007 straight from finishing her secondary school education.
The opportunity to start a career in a business that put their team first and career development at the forefront motivated Lisa to join the Mainfreight family. After spending a number of years learning Mainfreights operation from the ground up, Lisa took time out to explore the rest of the world. Since returning from her OE, Lisa has worked across Mainfreights Transport and Air & Ocean divisions, though now offers her expertise in Mainfreights Training & Development space.
