Corporate Cabs named top brand for second year

Premium taxi company Corporate Cabs has been named a Superbrand for the second year in a row, ahead of any other taxi companies.

Chief executive Colin Samson is delighted that Corporate Cabs has once again been selected by the people of New Zealand as a Superbrand, based on Neilsen NZ research.

“It’s great to know that our customers value the top notch service we give them and it’s a credit to our owner-drivers that they uphold our values,” he says.

Corporate Cabs is in good company, with other Superbrands named for 2014 including Whittakers, ANZ. Brancott Estate and Countdown.

Last year was the first year Superbrands came to New Zealand, although it has been in more than 83 countries for 17 years.

To identify New Zealand’s Superbrands, Neilsen sourced information from its Consumer and Media Insights (CMI), Consumer Panels Service (CPS) and Omnibus surveys.

CMI is based on 12,000 face-to-face interviews with Kiwi’s each year, CPS is a panel of 2500 households that measure consumables, and the Omnibus is a continuous survey of 1000 households.

Corporate Cabs has more than 400 drivers in Auckland, Wellington, Christchurch, Dunedin and Queenstown.

“We do offer the best service – beautiful vehicles, positive, pleasant service and drivers who love what they’re doing, all for a competitive price,” says Mr Samson.

Scoop Review Of Books: The Typewriter Factory

I finished reading Don’t Dream It’s Over not long after it came out last August. I even started writing a review, which took something of an ‘I’m sorry people, but it’s already over’ approach. I’ve been pretty negative about journalism as it’s practiced in the mainstream (or MSM, or corporate media or liberal media or whatever terminology you prefer) for quite some time (see for example Stop the Press), and I believe the current capitalist media model is destructive and can’t be reformed.

Howard Davis Review: Dick Frizzell At The Solander Gallery

One of the most influential and celebrated contemporary Pop artists working in New Zealand, Dick Frizzell is mostly known for his appropriation of kitsch Kiwiana icons, which he often incorporates into cartoon-like paintings and lithographs. Not content with adhering to one particular style, he likes to adopt consciously unfashionable styles of painting, in a manner reminiscent of Roy Lichtenstein. More>>

Scoop Review Of Books: Purple (and Violet) Prose

This is the second recent conjoint publication by Reeve and Stapp; all to do with esoteric, arcane and obscure vocabulary – sesquipedalian, anyone – and so much more besides. Before I write further, I must stress that the book is an equal partnership between words and images and that one cannot thrive without the other. More>>
