Giuseppe is a family man... and he is often found at home or driving around scenic drives.

I'd like to be remembered for being passionate, fair, honest and transparent.

Duane Lakey  -  Country Head of Finance



I am eager to learn and enjoy experiencing new things in business and life.  What I am most passionate about is making a tangible difference in what ever I do and to add value where needed (and not).



I started out in the Freight industry in 2002 as a Shipping Clerk but when I changed jobs in 2004 I started in the Finance department. I literally started at the bottom as a ‘’splitter/admin assistant’’ putting together document packs for clients and today I have experience in every facet of accounting and finance within the industry.
