New general manager appointed at DairyNZ

DairyNZ has appointed Andrew Reid as its new general manager of extension, the role that leads the industry body's regional consulting officer teams.

Andrew will start in the position on 4 May.

Andrew was previously general manager of sales with Ballance Agri-Nutrients, leading a field team of 120. He has also worked as a consultant for Agriculture New Zealand, has a Bachelor of Agricultural Science degree from Massey University and is from a family dairy farm in the Bay of Plenty.

DairyNZ chief executive Tim Mackle says Andrew will be a great addition to his senior leadership team.

"This is a very important role for our organisation as our regional teams connect every day directly to farmers across the country through leading our events, focus farms and discussion groups. Andrew is very passionate about the opportunity to help dairy farmers with their challenges and opportunities and he has extensive experience in coaching teams. I'm delighted he's coming on board."
