Meet The Team
James has been in the shipping and container industry ever since moving to Auckland from the Mainland, 20 odd years ago. Starting NZBOX in 2014 he has grown it from the ground up, and as Managing Director is still across all aspects of the business. Somewhat competitive by nature, James has a vision for NZBOX to always provide customers with the box they need, where and when they need it, and for it to be delivered with second to none customer service. When he’s not buying/designing/paying for and managing a fleet of steel boxes, James can be found at the bakery buying custard cream twists.
Hailing from Felixstowe, home of Britain’s largest container port, Stu was always destined for a career in containers. Joining NZBOX from early on, Stuart is an integral part of the team and as Operations Manager he ensures everything runs like a well-oiled machine. Handling everything from logistics to supply and relocations, he’s the man ensuring NZBOX customers can rely on getting the box they’re after, delivered by one of our top-notch transport providers, nationwide. Not one to shy away from hard work, Stu also dabbles in a bit of sales when needed.
Coming to NZBOX from a background in sporting goods and media sales, Reuben took to containers like a ship to water. Building instant rapport with customers, Reub is a pro at listening to customer needs and providing a solution that suits their unique requirements. Whether it’s a simple storage problem or something more complex, Reuben will go above and beyond to ensure the whole process runs seamlessly. When he’s not selling up a storm in the office and clocking up 5 star Google reviews he can be found putting tomato sauce on his eggs bene and doing calf raises.
The man, the myth, the legend, Ian is the NZBOX TradeMe extraordinaire. Based in Christchurch, Ian is the NZBOX man on the ground in the South Island. Managing the online side of things through the TradeMe store, Ian predominantly works the e-comm container sales, but also loves a good chat so you might be lucky to catch him on the 0800 as well.
The NZBOX in house wine expert, Josh is also partial to selling the odd steel box. Josh primarily looks after the B2B side of things for NZBOX, but because he’s a good bloke, he also works across the Direct business as and when he can. When he’s not eating inhuman amounts of chilli or riding his motorbike, Josh is busy researching potential market opportunities, chatting to procurement types, and working to ensure the top-notch NZBOX service is delivered across all sales channels. Josh is the current NZBOX Push Up champ.
Keeping things running in the background, Amanda is part of the NZBOX Hawkes Bay based team. Looking after all things financial, you probably don’t want a call from her, lovely as she is!
The in house wordsmith and party planner, Carlie is responsible for ensuring the NZBOX brand is en pointe via media channels, CSR support, and staff engagement.
