Dr Stevens says he was delighted with the invitation, and looked forward to working with other like-minded individuals for the good of the industry.

“I believe biotechnology is a key platform on which to build a new dimension to New Zealand’s economy, and this belief is why I founded Bio-Strategy in 2001. Being able to share this passion with others on the Advisory Council, and support the industry body NZBio, is a welcome opportunity.”

Dr Stevens has considerable management experience, and is currently Chairman of Certified Organics. Previous roles include Excell Corporation CEO, Fernz Chemical Group General Manager, Carter Holt Harvey Packaging – Case Division Marketing Manager, and Trigon Packaging Systems (NZ) Ltd Sales and Marketing Manager. He graduated from Massey University in Palmerston North in 1986 with a PhD in Biochemistry.

Through these entities, the Group is able to access and distribute the world’s best biotech supplies and equipment, while also providing the advice and investment know-how to grow the New Zealand biotechnology sector.
