"Problems are a solution in disguise"
Mike Newton has been in the Shipping Industry for over 40 years. Starting as an Engineer at sea in 1974, Mike eventually came ashore and progressed through the various aspects of the Shipping Industry including Ship Planning at various Container Terminals around New Zealand. Mike then moved into the Sales and Marketing area.
After living in Christchurch, the opportunity arose for the family to relocate to Nelson. Mike managed a Shipping Agency before opening Pegasus Shipping Agency in 1999. Mike’s passion for the Industry is still obvious today and he enjoys the daily challenges that arise.
Karl is now in his second year with Pegasus Shipping Agency. From being a fully qualified Chef, he decided on a career change to assist Mike with Shipping Agency operations. Karl’s interest in Ships appeared from a young age when he and his sister, Brooke, were invited aboard to meet the Captain’s and Crew of many visiting vessels.
Now studying for a Certificate of Commercial Logistics by remote correspondence, Karl is expanding his Shipping Industry knowledge and is now capable of dealing with all aspects of Shipping Agency requirements.
Tui, with her gentle nature, can sometimes be found at the Office or travelling around with Mike to pickup/drop off a visiting Captain or Crew Members, meeting up with returning “friends” she has made on their previous visits, reminding them of their pets at home. They are always keen to give her a pat and scratch which she receives enthusiastically.
