YOUR FRESHA TEAM

 

Mike Audi

General Manager 

IMG 3737-818
Mike joined the Fresha family in October 2016.  He brings over 18 years’ experience trading in fresh produce, 8 of that in export where Mike represented Fresha’s preferred produce supplier.  Often Mike travelled alongside the Fresha Sales Team to help represent Fresha’s fresh produce range. His familiarity of the Fresha team, business practices & friendship with Andy is a huge advantage.

Mike is your go to guy for anything you need – whether you’re a customer or supplier.  Winning Emerging Exporter 2014 – Air NZ Export Awards is one of his accolades.  Mike also speaks Arabic and is a seasoned traveller.

When Mike is not busy representing Fresha he goes home to his wife Tash & 3 sons - James (15yo), Antoni (11yo) & Nathan (3yo).  In his spare - spare time Mike plays sub football, outdoor and indoor cricket, slays fish, plays a bad round of golf and tries to surf waves – all this is done with a cold beer handy!
