People profile - Lynn Garbett

This month we introduce Lynn Garbett, our Credit Controller based in Wellington. Lynn will be a familiar name to some of our Commercial customers as a key contact in our Credit team. Lynn achieves an incredible milestone in her career this month as she reaches her 25th anniversary with Shell, Greenstone Energy and now Z. Congratulations Lynn!

Z Position: Credit Controller

Z Career: I’ve been with the company 25 years and started on 7 February 1989 in the Cashiers Office and was employed to reconcile cash sales from all the depots around New Zealand. I was appointed to this position to bring stability and maturity to the department. I then worked in Payroll and Pensions before going to Accounts Receivable which later became the Credit team. I was selected to be part of a team that went to Manila to train the off shore staff there and that was an eye opener and made me appreciate my country even more.

Favourite part of the job: I would have to say, it’s the people at Z. It’s a delight every morning to walk through the front door to a great office environment and some amazingly talented people. I really enjoy the contact I have with our customers, and have built some great relationships with them.

Vision for the future of Z Energy: I believe that Z will be a world class company. In just a few years it has come a long way. Everyone knows what Z is and what it stands for. The company has done so much for local communities through the Good in Hood programme.

Hobbies/Interests outside of work: I love to travel and have had some wonderful overseas holidays and visited a lot of countries. This year, I’m off on another 13 day cruise around the island of Hawaii, and then on to Vancouver. My family are an important part of my life and with six grandsons, a lot of time is spent at sporting events like soccer, basketball and swimming. Our Easter egg hunts are more like The Amazing Race now that they are older.
