A passionate rural professional, Paul is experienced in business development, account management and hands-on farming. He joined ofi from Fonterra where he was responsible for growing and retaining milk supply in the Waikato region. This included growing specialty milk supply programmes such as winter milk and A2.
Paul is looking forward to meeting with farmers to learn more about their business goals and how ofi can best support them, as well as contributing to the success of the South Waikato community.
Rural life runs in Paul’s blood having been raised on a South Auckland dairy farm and managed factories – including dairy plants in the Waikato and Bay of Plenty – for almost 20 years. He is experienced in FMCG, food manufacturing and almost all aspects of the supply chain through roles with Unilever, Fonterra and Tasti and thrives on building engaged and effective teams that deliver results.
Paul is excited to explore the value ofi can bring to the South Waikato community and share the best of New Zealand with the rest of the world.
