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 am lucky enough to live near beautiful Geraldine in South Canterbury. From here I service the South Canterbury region and beyond.
I have worked in the Livestock industry since leaving school and have enjoyed previous roles with both Rural Livestock and Alliance.
I am passionate about rugby, enjoy following the boys in black and time permitting love a good game of cricket in the summer.
Having grown up with rural background it was evident from a young age that in some way I would be involved in the agricultural industry.
After finishing boarding school I went on to complete a Bachelor of Commerce in Agriculture at Lincoln University. It was then, I knew that the stock and station industry was for me where. I spent 2 years working for another livestock firm as an agent before having a great opportunity to explore and live in France before returning to South Canterbury and taking up my current role.
In my spare time, I enjoy playing field hockey, boating and catching up with a few familiar faces.
I enjoy being a part of the Hazlett team and the continued growth of the company.
