Industry good investor Dairy InSight has appointed David Wright as its new Chief Executive.

“David will bring to Dairy InSight a wealth of experience and knowledge from both the primary industry and the government sector,” said Dairy InSight Chairman Doug Leeder.

David grew up on a third generation dairy farm in the Waikato and went on to graduate from Massey University with a Bachelor of Technology in Food Technology.
