Greg Managh

Chief Executive

Greg brings substantial experience in leading the development and growth of companies in the Australasian supply chain and healthcare sectors. He enjoys working collaboratively and building strong relationships. As a recipient of the Prime Minister's Business Scholarship in 2011, Greg studied post graduate management at the prestigious Wharton Business School at the University of Pennsylvania. Having known the Online Distribution team from previous roles with two of the company's long-standing healthcare clients, Greg grabbed the opportunity to join the company. Beginning his tenure as Auckland Regional Manager in early 2018, Greg became Chief Executive in April 2019. Now that the recent Covid-19 crisis has cemented the logistics industry as a critical component in New Zealand's service infrastructure, Greg is excited to be leading a well-established family-owned business in the logistics industry at this time. He has an exciting growth agenda for the company with an ambition to confirm Online Distribution as a lead player in the Australasian multi-channel / e-commerce space. In his spare time Greg enjoys spending time with his young family, mixing in a little golf and following his racehorses.

Sam Jones

Site Manager

Having started his logistics career as a casual while at University, it quickly became apparent to Sam that this career path could take him somewhere. Coming from the Giltrap Group as a logistics consultant, Online presented an exciting next step in his career. Sam started in September 2019 at Freight Place in Auckland and says that warehouse / site management at Online is unique and best likened to running a small business unit - allowing him to have the flexibility to interact with the team on the floor while maintaining daily operations, financial outlooks and forecasting for potential growth. Outside of work, Sam says he's a big fan of supporting mediocrity in sport, the Blues and the New York Knicks. If it's not sport, he'll be travelling with his partner and friends.

Jake Strickland

Site Manager

Jake moved from his home town on the Kapiti Coast to Auckland joining Online in 2015, and he quickly stepped onto a career path toward site management.

Outside of work Jake enjoys doing all sorts, including catching up with friends and family, playing many sports (mostly basketball), and recently trying his hand at golf and hunting. He is also an avid supporter of the Chicago Bulls and the Mighty Hurricanes!
