I have been in the industry since 1983 and worked in Marlborough, Canterbury and South Canterbury as a livestock rep before moving into management roles since 2000 covering Canterbury and later the entire South Island.
I am married to Pip and we have two great children, Ollie and Kate. My interests are following the children's sports, family time and, of course, rugby.
I joined the livestock industry in 1979 as a junior with Dalgetys and have held several positions as a stock manager and farm manager throughout Canterbury as well as being a livestock rep in Te Anau, Mid Canterbury and now in the Cheviot/Kaikoura region.
I am married to Ginny and we have three sons; Sam, Tim and Gus. We live in Amberley, North Canterbury where the boys are heavily involved in several sports including cricket, rowing, rugby and horse riding. As a keen supporter of the boys, my weekends tend to be very busy. My other interests include fishing, sailing and generally relaxing anywhere where the boat or rugby is involved.
I've been involved in the stock and station industry since 1988. I started with PGG in the mail room as a junior, progressed to the stock department, then on the road as junior agent in Leeston, then posted to Timaru where I spent 18 months. I was then posted to Fairlie where I looked after Albury area for a year.
I am married to Sarah with three children, Jonty, Alice and Eliza. My interests are fishing, jet boating and rugby.
I grew up on a sheep and beef farm out the back of Hawarden and have been in the livestock industry as an agent for many years. Three years based in Marlborough, and the remainder in North Canterbury, based in Amberley with Danelle and our two boys Hunter and Mitchell.
Now that I have finally admitted to the fact I will never be an All Black, I have recently hung up my boots to focus on my boys rugby careers. I also enjoy hunting, water sports and having a beer.
I joined Hazlett in 2019 as a junior in North Canterbury. Growing up in town I always had a passion for the agricultural sector, with many family farms. I’ve worked as a shepherd, farm general and attended Lincoln. Outside of work I enjoy the outdoors and play rugby in the winter months. I’m enjoying being part of the Hazlett team, and am looking forward to dealing with livestock and farmers.
