Stephen Macaulay has been appointed to the newly created chief executive role at the New Zealand Institute of Primary Industry Management.
Mr Macaulay was previously general manager of the Agricultural and Marketing Research and Development Trust (AGMARDT) and, before that, general manager of the Retail Meat Industry Training Organisation and Retail Meat New Zealand.
Mr Macaulay will be leading the organisation at a time when industry sectors and government agencies are looking to it to help the farming community work through some important issues.
President Wayne Allan said those issues included increased regulation of land use with respect to water quality and environmental performance, as well as the continued development and profitability of farming systems. The NZIPIM is a membership-based association for rural professionals who provide services for the primary sector. It comprises about 700 members from a wide variety of occupations, including agribusiness and farm management consultancies, education providers, farm finance and accountancy firms, rural banking, farmers, fertiliser companies, rural valuation, agri-sciences, property management and veterinary services.
