Bachelor of Commerce
LANDED: Director of Sales and Marketing for Findatruckload
Originally from the Waikato, when Andrew Bishop decided he wanted to study in the South Island, he chose Lincoln University.
Andrew heard about the career opportunities available in the transport industry after a presentation at his high school by a Lincoln University ambassador. “I chose a BCom because I have always been interested in business management. I really enjoyed the practical courses with real-life lessons.”
After graduating, Andrew worked for Mainfreight in the graduate programme for four years. He is now the Director of Sales and Marketing for Findatruckload.
“In the future, I would like to expand Findatruckload into overseas markets and then look at starting a few other business ventures in different industries.”
Andrew describes his time at Lincoln University as an “epic life experience”. “It’s a great social environment to let your hair down and be who you want to be. Many personalities and good memories are etched in my brain from my time at Lincoln.”
