Our People


After a very  short career as a fisherman, Geoff founded the company that is now NZ Red. Today he looks after our partners and suppliers, and the fishermen who harvest our lobster from throughout New Zealand.
He’s also a director of the NZ Rock Lobster Industry Council, and spends his down time cruising in his ’66 Mustang, loudly supporting the All Blacks and Auckland rugby, or relaxing at Piha on Auckland’s unspoiled wild west coast.


Peter’s in charge of managing NZ Red’s export customers and has been with the company for over 20 years.  Founding chairman of the Lobster Exporters Association he plays a pivotal role in ensuring the sustainability of the New Zealand lobster markets.

Pete’s a family guy, adventurous traveller, and obsessive Frisbee thrower.


Philippa has been with the company for 25 years, and has the logistics and marketing of live lobster down to a fine art. As a mother of five girls, she’s unflappable and always organized.

To escape her family she loves riding horses.
