Thousands of Kiwis are calling for a ban on Wicked Campers offensive slogans, but the man behind the vans is nowhere to be found.
The company behind the offensive and borderline misogynistic slogans driving around some of the most beautiful parts of New Zealand is nothing if not defiant.
John William Webb refuses to explain – let alone, apologise for – the vans that have motorists, campsites, guide books, councils and the Government up in arms. He has spoken up in defence of his company in the past but this time he has avoided media, deciding to keep quiet.
LEANNE (Stuff News photo) – Webb’s son Liam Webb has spoken on behalf of Wicked Campers before, as “LEANNE Webb”.
As well as The Trustee of the Juicy Love Trust, Webb has a string of Wicked-related companies listed on the New Zealand Companies Office site.
- Wicked Cult Limited was started in December 2002. Webb is its sole director and it’s owned by Wicked NZ Holdings Pty Ltd, which is registered to Webb’s Queensland business address.
- Hells Vans Ltd was incorporated in November 2005. Again, it’s Webb at the helm and the owner is WKD Group Pty Ltd, same address. [Hells Vans was removed from the NZ Companies Register on 12/02/13]
- Wicked Culture Ltd, first registered in July 2005, is also owned by Wicked NZ Holdings Pty Ltd and directed by Webb.
- Lastly, there’s Wicked Ltd. This one was also incorporated in July 2005 and is entirely owned by Webb. He’s also the director.
Like any company listed in New Zealand, they have a local address. Webb’s companies’ New Zealand address is listed as a Christchurch business advisory firm.
Wicked Campers have also blazed a global trail, spreading across the globe, with branches in New Zealand, Australia, Japan, the UK and Europe, Africa, US and Canada, and South America. There are thousands of Wicked vans on the road worldwide.
