Click for big version.

Anne Hindson has been appointed as General Manager of the Rural Leadership Consortium, a new joint venture between the Nuffield Farming Scholarship Trust and the Kellogg Rural Leadership Programme. 

In September 2013 the Nuffield Farming Scholarship Trust and the Kellogg Rural Leaders Programme (owned and administered by Lincoln University) announced they were combining their efforts to improve leadership capability within the rural and primary sectors in New Zealand.

The two programmes will continue to operate distinctly and maintain their strong existing brands and alumni networks, under newly appointed General Manager, Anne Hindson.

“We are delighted to have Anne confirmed in the role as the General Manager of the Rural Leadership Consortium,” says Nuffield Trustee Juliet Maclean.  “Anne joins us with a diverse business background including sports and event management. She understands the importance of effective leadership and the value of encouraging high levels of team performance. Anne has a real interest in the on-going development of people, at all stages of their careers.”

Lincoln University’s Assistant Vice-Chancellor, Business Development, Jeremy Baker adds that it was important that the appointee had strong management experience, working across a range of industries and sectors.

“It is vital for the primary industry we continue to foster agribusiness leaders, to help shape and lead the future of their industry,” says Mr Baker.

“Anne’s experience in management positions and independent project management and contract work across private, government and not-for-profit sectors makes her ideal to deliver on the Rural Leadership Consortium’s strategic priorities, utilise her networks and secure funding opportunities.“

Anne has a Master of Commerce and Management from Lincoln University and a Bachelor of Arts from the University of Canterbury. Her previous experience includes Project Manager for Education New Zealand, Business Advisor for the Selwyn District Council, Christchurch Manager for the RWC 2011, and Director of the National Conference for the New Zealand Association of Event Professionals.
