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.
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.
I have been working as a Stock Agent since 2006, but in my younger days (mid 1980s) worked at Dalgetys in the North Island. My career has seen me in the Farming and Transport Industry in both the North and South Islands. My wife Joanna and 2 children, Bill and Ana, keep me busy. As a family we enjoy jet boating.
Having grown up on the family sheep and beef farm in Waiau, North Canterbury, I‘ve always had a strong passion for the agricultural industry. After school I completed a Bachelor of Commerce in Agriculture at Lincoln University. Afterwards in 2017 I started with Alliance and then joined the Hazlett team in 2020, in South Canterbury. I enjoy rugby, tennis and hunting.
