Ed Creedy


Sales Manager


Back in 2006 I was a university student in Auckland, life was good until the struggle to scrape enough money for beer became evident – that’s where Mainfreight comes in!

My journey with the Mainfreight Group started as I worked part time in the Logistics division of New Zealand’s largest supply chain company. It was hard work but I learnt a lot and understood what warehousing was really about.

After graduating I headed into transport to broaden my knowledge, I learnt a lot and soon was offered an opportunity in the Sales Team. I jumped at the chance – it was the place to be for a young ambitious individual!

During my 18 months in the Sales Team I was busy looking after customers and eagerly looking for new ones when a Sales Manager role presented itself. I leapt at the opportunity to lead an awesome team and now look after a Sales Team in one of the largest branches in the Group.

If you enjoy meeting people and being the face of an organisation, sales is the place to make your mark. Looking back I wasn’t sure what I was getting myself into, but now I know it was the right decision!
