DairyNZ chief executive Dr Tim Mackle says he is delighted to have Robyn, an experienced sector finance leader, start last week as the chief financial officer and general manager of corporate services at DairyNZ.

“We are privileged to recruit an individual with such depth of knowledge and expertise, along with solid understanding and appreciation of our sector,” he says.

“Robyn grew up on a South Taranaki dairy farm and being part of a rural agricultural community is an anchoring motivator in her career and way of life.”

As a chartered accountant, Robyn started her career with Deloitte Touche Tohmatsu before moving to Fonterra in 2002. There she held several financial leadership roles, such as general manager of global accounting services and mergers and acquisitions.

“Robyn’s breadth of experience leading cross-functional projects and teams will be a great asset to DairyNZ as we continue building a collaborative, high-performance culture for the benefit of our dairy farmers,” Tim says.

Robyn’s initial focus will be the execution of the strategic plan for the coming year, to help align priorities and overall strategy and progress a positive future for New Zealand dairy farming.

Robyn is excited to be taking her career in agricultural finance to the next level and having the opportunity to be part of positive progress for the dairy industry and our farmers.

“There are significant challenges and opportunities facing the dairy sector today and into the future,” she says.

“Collaborating with our farmers and sector partners on innovative solutions is an effective way to drive a positive future for dairying. Working at DairyNZ provides a great opportunity to be a part of this journey, and I look forward to progressing my work in the sector to date with this new role.”
