Background

Dr Zwanenberg gained his first doctorate in 1975 at the Erasmus University in Rotterdam. Between 1972 and 1986, Dr Zwanenberg, 50, was the Assistant Professor at the Department of Management Studies at the Agricultural University, Wageningen. During this period, his research interests focused on the economic and organisational aspects of the European dairy industry.

His PhD thesis, European Dairy Cooperatives Developing New Strategies was published in 1997. He defended this in March of that year at University College Cork in Ireland, and addressed the question of how dairy cooperatives can combine the developments of new strategies with the maintenance of a cooperative organisation.

Dr Zwanenberg has authored various Rabobank dairy reports and in 1996 joined F & A Research where he coordinated the Dairy & Food research team.

Since September 2000, he has combined his dairy research work with his new task as Global Industry Specialist Dairy for Rabobank in which he acts as an advisor in dairy business issues for the bank and for clients.

Dr Zwanenberg is widely regarded as one of the world’s foremost experts on cooperatives.
