Sebastian Stapleton

Managing Director

Prior to becoming Managing Director of Trade Assist, Sebastian started Mastagard as a one truck company, building it to become the South Island’s largest independent waste and recycling company until it was sold in May 2014. As Director and Shareholder of Assura Software Limited, a fast growing company which provides workflow and knowledge management systems to a number of government departments, agencies and large corporate organisations, together with providing board advisory services and trustee services to organisations within the philanthropy and arts community, Sebastian maintains a steady guiding hand across strategic direction and organisational performance.

Sebastian’s key passion of building successful teams and driving company turnarounds has seen him make a considerable contribution to the level of growth and success Trade Assist has achieved today, building up the business from a labour contracting business to an integrated recruitment services provider leading the way in delivering smarter workforce solutions for New Zealand businesses.

With all that on his plate, Sebastian tries to find balance with a hectic schedule by spending time in the Marlborough Sounds enjoying boating and quality fishing.
