Lorne Maltman, Manager - Accounts & Operations

Lorne has been with the company almost 7 years and enjoys the energetic atmosphere and variety of his role, plus the daily commute on his scooter. He is a true believer in newspapers, what they provide and how they work, while his degree in Mathematics explains his enjoyment in the numbers and logistics involved in their publication. Lorne has been involved in media since he arrived in NZ from Scotland in 2003, working for The Press in Christchurch, but newspapers have always been in his blood. His father owned a newspaper distribution business and from a young age Lorne was in the passenger seat helping out! Outside work Lorne loves spending time with his family and listening to his music.
