Our Team

The Staffline Whānau

“No truck in New Zealand moves without a driver.

Every member of the office based Staffline team are there because they know their jobs.  Our most important job is to support the driver.” Mike Edwards

Mike Edwards

Founder / Company Director

mike@staffline.co.nz | 021 997 991

A highly experienced driver himself with nearly 30 years of experience, Mike founded and ran a successful driving agency in the UK since 2000, and more recently in NZ since 2015. His aim has always been to work in transport and logistics as an excuse to call playing with trucks “work”. He has three adult children, and loves the country life, favouring driving tractors over smashed avocado brunches. His lifelong ambition is to try driving the Outback with a proper outback trucker, and to build up a collection of old trucks.
