Ravensdown announces new CEO

MEDIA RELEASE

27th July 2012

Ravensdown announces new CEO

Ravensdown, the 100% farmer-owned co-operative, has appointed Greg Campbell as the new CEO to replace chief executive Rodney Green when he retires on the 31st December 2012.

In announcing the appointment, Chairman of Ravensdown, Mr Bill McLeod, commented that “Rodney Green had given us plenty of notice of his intention to retire, which gave us the luxury of time to conduct a really thorough search for his replacement. We are grateful for that, as Rodney will leave a very different Ravensdown to the one he took over in 1998. We especially thank Rodney, and acknowledge the job he has done growing and strengthening the company over the years of his stewardship. This meant we needed to find a special replacement to take over the reins from him.”

“We’re delighted that Greg will be leading the Ravensdown team,” added Bill.

Greg will be based in Ravensdown’s Christchurch head office, leading a team of 684 employees in New Zealand and Australia. He has held the position of CEO of Ngai Tahu Holdings Group since his return from overseas, and has had wide experience in infastructure, petroleum, rural and waste management. Greg says he is “excited about joining the Ravensdown team and looking forward to the opportunities and assisting with building on the great foundations laid by the current management.”

“Because Ravensdown is a diverse, NZ-based international agribusiness co-operative with 30,000 shareholders, the CEO role was viewed as a desirable leadership position and attracted candidates from around the globe which gave the Board a wide range of skillsets to choose from,” said Patrick Willock, chairman of the Appointments Committee.

The Board selected Greg because of his international CEO experience and the more recent role he has played in making Ngai Tahu a successful and vibrant business. "These achievements, plus many other positive attributes, make Greg the ideal person to continue with the exciting developments within Ravensdown that our current CEO Rodney Green has instigated during the 16 years which he has lead us," concluded Bill.
