Silver Fern Farms has appointed Queenstown barrister and accountant Jane Taylor as an independent director following the retirement of Richard Somerville.

Taylor, who is a director of Radio New Zealand and the Institute of Geological and Nuclear Science, was previously a director of Scion as well as the former Forestry Corporation.

Silver Fern Farms Chairman Eoin Garden acknowledged Somerville's contribution over 9 years on the board.

"His financial experience, and business acumen have been invaluable over that period which included some turbulent times."
