Commenting on Peter's appointment, Marcus Goldsworthy, Managing Director of FPS New Zealand said: “In the last two years, we have launched new services, expanded our coverage of the Pacific Islands and relocated our headquarters to a new, purpose built office and warehouse facility at Auckland International airport.

“ We have been looking at ways to further strengthen and develop our presence on the South Island for some time. Opening a new branch office in Christchurch and appointing Peter is a clear sign of our intentions to enhance our presence in the New Zealand marketplace.”
