    First Express Employment Professionals Office Opens in New Zealand as Part of International Expansion

    Employment Franchise Located in Rosedale, Auckland



    The much-anticipated expansion of staffing agency Express Employment Professionals continues with the grand opening of its newest franchise in Rosedale, Auckland, New Zealand.  9-14-2021

    The expansion of the international employment business began in early 2021 with the company establishing a location in Sydney Olympic Park, Australia, to add to its more than 830 offices internationally. Today's announcement establishes the first Express franchise in New Zealand with more to come. 

    "This is an exciting chapter for Express Employment Professionals as we continue to connect good people with quality companies across the globe," Express CEO Bill Stoller said. "Our franchise model uniquely positions us for success. With local business experts on the ground, our headquarters in the United States is ready to support them with nearly 40 years of staffing experience and success."

    Following an accomplished professional career in sales, development of Enterprise Resource Planning Systems, and accounting, ultimately serving as the chief financial officer for a mid-sized finance company, Rosedale franchise owner Brian Capper is excited to return to his true professional passion - teaching, training and development. 

    "For me, being a small business owner is not just about creating my own employment, it's about creating employment opportunities for others and living by my principles," Capper said. "Choosing to be an Express franchisee is the true alignment of those principles and values."

    Capper says it hasn't hit his new team yet that they are part of a milestone in Express history as the first franchise office in New Zealand, but they are coming to realize how monumental it is.  

    "We feel enormously proud of being associated with Express and are very excited about being the first office in our country," he said. "It's a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to be at the start of something great, and we look forward to being a vital cog in the wheel of the New Zealand community."

    Capper's team is ready to hit the ground running with the opening of his office doors, and he sees the advantage of investing in his local community. 

    "Our backyard is their backyard," he said of why job seekers and area businesses should use Express for their human resources needs. "Everyone employed in our office lives, plays and is part of our community. My team is eager, innovative and ready to put Rosedale to work!"
