Les Laufiso – Managing Director
Les has 20 plus years experience and comes from a Systems Analyst background. He worked for NZ Life in the mid-80’s before taking on an owner-driver courier business in the later part of the decade. By the early 90’s, he gained considerable experience in Operations and Dispatch.

In early 1996, Les and Duncan began Under Hour Xpress – now Speedy Couriers, which he is proud to still be owning and running today. There are few people in our industry who could remotely compete with his excellence in the field of Dispatch, especially when it comes to clearing hundreds of jobs a day. He also has an impressive knowledge of Auckland’s suburbs and streets.

He is married to Marguerite and they have 2 teenaged daughters. A keen sportsman and senior rep in Rugby in his early days, he now takes pleasure in golf and watching his daughters excel in their sports.

Les is Co-Owner and Director to a number of other successful companies.

Duncan Cameron – Finance Director
Duncan was an ex-Customs officer for 14 years from the 80’s to the mid-90’s. In 1996 he co-founded Under Hour Xpress with Les, taking care of Sales, Marketing and Finance.

By the mid 2000’s, he looked for other challenges, ultimately co-founding Strata Networks Ltd – a network-solutions provider that bases itself on the North Shore employing a staff of 15 highly qualified nerds; and Stratanet – an ISP specialising in innovative wireless solutions to rural and city broadband solutions. It too has a talented group of nerds and both companies have over 10 plus years of experience.

Along the way, he developed a passion for Macro Economic matters. He turned his hand to the Gold and Silver markets. He began working with Anglo Far East Bullion and Physical Gold Fund, based in Panama and Switzerland. For the last 10 years, he has written, spoken and travelled extensively on their behalf, and is still enthusiastic about AFEB today.

Duncan’s role at Speedy is Directing and Managing Sales along with Financial Management. Like Les, he is also extremely passionate about the company he co-founded and continues to hold a major share of it today, some 20 post founding.

He is married to Amanda with 2 young children. Although he boasts no particular sporting pedigree, he enjoys hacking his way round a golf course.
