Producer Services Executive
I was born and raised in the Eastern Cape as a “towny”, where I fell in love with agriculture at an early age and found any excuse to visit friends and family on their farms. Upon completing my school career, I obtained a B-Tech degree in Agricultural Management and gained work experience on dairy farms in Tsitsikamma and Alexandria, as well as overseas. In 1998, I was fortunate enough to start working as a Field Officer at the, then National Cooperative Dairies, based in Ixopo, KwaZulu-Natal. There, I met my wife Wendy with whom I have two amazing children – the pride and joy of my life. I have had incredible mentors throughout my career; from my father, to managers, to the farmers who took a chance on me and gave me my first employment opportunity all those years ago.
I am privileged to be part of an incredible Producer Services team that appreciates the fact that farming is more than just a job and that our farmers are the heart of our business. We are honoured to service some of the best dairy farmers in the world and I look forward to building a dairy company together – one that is forward thinking, innovative, and a proudly South African Homegrown business.
