New recruits help meet demand in South Island

Aaron Nash 

Aaron Nash will never look at a shipping container in the same way again since starting at Royal Wolf New Zealand.   

The new Regional Sales Manager – South says he had no idea a container was so adaptable and could be used to solve a wide range of business challenges.   

“One thing I do know is you are only as good as your last hire so that keeps you on your toes and I’m already testing myself in what is a hugely dynamic and faced paced sector,” he says.   

 Mr Nash and Tim Creed, the new Nelson Branch Manager, have joined Royal Wolf’s South Island operation to help meet customer demand and maximise opportunity across the region, which covers the Marlborough and Tasman districts in the north down to Southland.  

Mr Nash says he’s looking forward to driving Royal Wolf’s growth aspirations in the South Island.   

 “This role gives me the opportunity to work closely with the team and customers to do what I love – and that’s build strong relationships and support customers to achieve the best possible outcomes by providing container solutions that meet their needs.” 

South Island opportunity gains momentum  

Demand for container products and solutions in the South Island is being driven by ongoing infrastructure and construction work, requirements for storage containers in sectors such as retail and the primary sector, and a growing need for storage and self-storage space as regions grow.  

Paul Creighton, New Zealand Executive General Manager, says a knowledgeable team with great relationships is essential to meeting the many different, and ever-changing, needs of customers when it comes to container solutions.  

“As our business grows and we continue to diversify as a result of inquiry and demand from a wider range of industries, it’s key to have people with expertise like Aaron and Tim to help our customers stay ahead of the game and their competitors.” 

Nelson a key regional hub   

Mr Creighton says Nelson is at the centre of a region that continues to thrive in a challenging economic climate.  

“It means it is key for us to have the right product on hand to meet customer’s needs, and to ensure quick and efficient deployment of containers,” he says.   

Mr Creed joins Royal Wolf after more than six years in a Business Development Manager and sales role at automobile and industrial parts leader GPC Asia Pacific / Repco. 

The Nelson local says he joined Royal Wolf to challenge himself in a new industry and different career.  

 “The industries I’ve worked in have highly transferable skills, and I have a huge number of great contacts which will help to drive opportunity and business growth for Royal Wolf in the local Nelson market and areas I service.”
