The Green Cabs Team
We are very proud to have put together a team of
kick-ass, passionate, honest and skilled people
who keep our company strong.
Toni has been with Green Cabs for over 9 years. Starting as a Night Dispatcher & Accounts Administrator, Toni worked her way up through the company and has been General Manager since 2014.
Understanding the ins and outs of the taxi industry, combined with a keen interest in challenging the status quo, she has lead some huge changes in Green Cabs to advance the company to the sustainable, technology-based leader it is today.
Toni's management ethos is to lead by example, working hard to create and maintain a welcoming and equal-opportunity environment for all drivers and staff, and anyone who engages with the Green Cabs family.
Toni loves all things green, environmentally friendly and cruelty-free and lives with her three fur-babies, wife and expanding vege-patch in Lower Hutt.
Amanda was born in Oxnard, California and moved to Wellington with her parents in early 1990.
Amanda started with Green Cabs in 2011 as a casual on-call staff member for the call centre, but quickly moved through the ranks to Dispatcher, then Fleet Manager, before taking up her current position as our nationwide Call Centre & Operations Manager.
Amanda has worked within the Transport and Logistics sector for many years, so she is not only knowledgeable and passionate about transport, technology and logistics - but she has a really keen interest in ensuring we provide top-notch customer service.
When Amanda’s not rushing around the office making sure everything is running well, you can find her out in her garden, cheering on her favourite rugby team, doing home renovations or simply spending time with her family, friends and animals.
Bob is a forward-thinking professional within the taxi industry. Bob has many years’ experience of self-employment and managing people of all ethnicities from the IT sector through to the transport sector.
Being married for the past 20-some years with 3 adult children, Bob comes from a very stable and reliable environment that carries over into his passion for the taxi industry.
Whether you encounter Bob at the Green Cabs office or out and about, his lust for life and the environment is infectious, it is difficult not to be inspired after spending just a short time with him.
Rob is our resident thrill-seeking, adventure-loving, fit and fearless 20 year old trapped in a 47 year old not-so-fit-but-still-fearless body!
Rob is in love with NZ and all things outdoors, and is a keen wakeboarder, moto x rider, skier, snowboarder and mountain biker.
Rob's been a Managing Director of numerous and successful businesses during the last 25 years, and somehow still managed time to convert his long-standing interest/concern in planet earth into a double degree in Earth Science.
He also had a brief fling with retirement - traveling 36,000km around Australia in a caravan for 2 years, before he came home and joined the amazing team at Green Cabs so he could help make the planet better, one taxi ride at a time.
Rob's supported in all things by one amazing wife, and 2 cats.
assistant wellington Manager
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 refugee and migrant, not-for-profit and government agencies.
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 experience to relate to each driver's specific needs.
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 Rob and the Wellington operations, he coaches, plays and watches soccer.
CHRISTCHURCH AND DUNEDIN MANAGER
Leighton is a born and breed Cantabrian who grew up playing hockey and cricket. He eventually ended up playing professional cricket for Canterbury for five seasons and finished his career with Wellington, where sadly injury curtailed his booming cricket career.
Not only is he devoted to sport, but like Rob, he also found time to graduate with a degree in Geography and Political Science from Canterbury University.
With a father who is a botanist, Leighton has a great appreciation for the environment, and he has a great passion for Green Cabs and its values.
Martin has been part of the Green Cabs team since November 2013. Originally from the UK, he emigrated with his wife to New Zealand in 2011 and is now the proud father of two gorgeous ‘Kiwi’ daughters. He feels very fortunate to call NZ his new home, and based in Queenstown, he gets to see some of the most picturesque parts of NZ.
With a successful career spanning 27 years in sales, training and personal development, Martin brings to Green Cabs a wealth of knowledge and experience, which, when combined, give him a unique skill base. He loves stepping out of his comfort zone and challenging himself, and no matter what it is he is doing, he’s always striving to be the best that he can be.
Martin has always been passionate about the great outdoors. He’s a keen snowboarder, kite surfer and paddleboarder. These sports naturally connect him with nature and the environment - two things which are close to both his heart and Green Cabs’.
When he’s not doing what he loves with Green Cabs, he is either relaxing with his family, throwing himself down a mountain or enjoying time on the water.
