Hill Laboratories appoints new General Manager

New Zealand's leading analytical testing laboratory, Hill Laboratories, has appointed Dr Matt Glenn as new General Manager (GM) of Operations and Analytical Technology.

Dr Glenn brings to Hill Laboratories almost two decades of executive management experience in the Biotechnology, Biopharmaceutical, Food Ingredients and Chemicals industries.

After moving to New Zealand from England in 1995 with a PhD in molecular biology from the University of Leeds, Dr Glenn began his career as a scientist at Genesis Research and Development Corporation Limited in Auckland.

Swiftly adding management experience to his scientific background, Dr Glenn was soon appointed head of the company’s Genomics Division, looking after the biggest DNA sequencing facility in the southern hemisphere.

He has since worked in management roles for some of New Zealand’s most successful companies, including Fonterra as Portfolio Manager for its Marketing and Innovation group, and Ballance Agri-Nutrients in Tauranga as General Manager of Research and Business Development.

“I am excited to have joined Hill Laboratories. It’s a dynamic and well respected company, with a highly regarded technical capability, that invests heavily in technology and is renowned for supplying a broad range of laboratory tests to a large number of clients from across New Zealand and all around the world,” said Dr Glenn.

“I look forward to providing leadership to keep Hill Laboratories on its impressive growth course since its small beginnings back in the early 1980s.”

For the five years prior to his appointment at Hill Laboratories, Dr Glenn was the Founder and Principal of Idea Partners, a specialist management consultancy company.

Hill Laboratories Managing Director and founder Dr Roger Hill said Dr Glenn’s mix of scientific and management experience will complement the existing Executive Management team perfectly.

“He brings invaluable skills in portfolio and project management, strategy, technology and communication; all of which will help Hill Laboratories continue to provide leading analytical laboratory services for our customers.”

Hill Laboratories is a 100 per cent privately owned New Zealand analytical testing laboratory and has three major testing areas: Agriculture, Environmental and Food.

With its main site in Hamilton, the company currently has four sites in the North Island, two in the South Island, and an office in Japan.

Dr Glenn began his role at the end of January 2014.
