We are very proud to have put together a team of kick-ass, passionate, honest and skilled people who keep our company strong.
Rob is our resident thrill-seeking, adventure-loving, fit and fearless 20 year old trapped in 50 year old, not-so-fit-but-still-fearless body! Rob is in love with NZ and all things outdoors; he's a keen wakeboarder, moto x rider, skier, snowboarder and mountain biker. He also owns an electric unicycle, which he sometimes rides to work (really). Rob's been the Managing Director of a number of successful businesses during the past 25 years, and somehow still managed to find time to convert his long-standing interest and concern for planet earth into a double degree in Earth Science. He also had a brief fling with retirement - travelling 36,000km around Australia in a caravan for 2 years, before returning to NZ, where he joined our amazing team. Rob's supported in all things by one amazing wife and two cats.

Accounts Administrator / Customer Relations Manager
Taase joined the Green team in 2016, working in the Call Centre, and slowly, but surely, acquired the Accounts role. She manages accounts, administration, and Customer Relations at Green Cabs Wellington, and is also a Graduate who majored in Sociology and Education at Victoria University. Balancing her studies and work duties has proven quite challenging for Taase, but at the same time, it is exciting and rewarding; especially with her great support system, her family, and her number one fan, her partner. Taase loves public speaking, and thrives in oratory-based competitions. She enjoys socialising, music, singing and loves learning everything and anything!
Helena joined the Green Cabs team in mid 2018, taking over the Auckland fleet management.
With a successful career in conflict management and general management, Helena brings a wealth of experience and enthusiasm to her new role within the Green Cabs family.
Helena is an avid animal fan, and is a local Ranger leader for the Girl Guides Association of NZ. She loves a good book, great TV, great podcasts and a strong coffee!
We're excited to have Helena onboard and can't wait to see the Auckland team go from strength to strength under Helena's management.
Tayo is a Nigerian Kiwi, born and raised in Lagos, Nigeria, before moving to Upper Hutt in 2004.
Tayo joined Green Cabs in 2017 as support to Rob, and brought with him a sound understanding of the operating frameworks for refugee, migrant, not-for-profit and government agency businesses.
He also has experience in warehousing and logistics, quality control and compliance, community development, relationship building and management. Tayo takes elements of each of these skills and areas of expertise in order to help him relate to the needs of our diverse team of drivers.
Tayo embraces challenges, always looks on the bright side of things, and with an entrepreneurial nature, his initiative and problem-solving skills are top-notch.
When he's not helping Lua and the Wellington team, he coaches, plays and watches soccer.
South Island Manager
UK born, Graham moved to New Zealand with his wife and teenage daughter in 2010. Enroute to our green land, they lived with their son in sunny Perth, Australia, for three years.
Graham started his Green Cabs journey in 2014, originally as a part-time driver whilst also working as a fly in/fly out Intensive Care Paramedic in remote areas of Western Australia, and then working full time as an Owner/Operator. Both of these jobs meshed well together - both requiring empathy, compassion, dedication, attention to detail and sometimes extreme survival skills! Graham has recently embraced joining the Green Cabs team on a full-time basis, now based in the Queenstown office.
Having owned family businesses in the UK, along with 22 years in the UK Royal Air Force, Graham is an extremely grounded individual, highly focused on customer service. Always calm when faced with challenging or difficult situations, his steely and quiet determination ensures the job always gets done.
Growing up on a small Scottish island, outdoor life was the norm for Graham and is where his love of hill-walking and climbing was born. This contributed to his later career path - as a Search and Rescue winchman for the RAF. Graham spends his downtime now exploring the depths of Central Otago in his MGB GT, and can often be found braving the lakes of the region for a swim with his wife. He is also a keen gardener, saffron now his speciality, though the navigation of his ride-on mower leaves something to be desired!
