Ravensdown picks chief executive

Fertiliser company Ravensdown has a new chief executive, former Ngai Tahu Holdings Corporation head Greg Campbell.

The chairman of the Australasian farmer- owned co-operative, Bill McLeod, said Campbell brought significant international experience as a chief executive and company director experience including with PGG Wrightson.

Campbell, who was chief executive at Ngai Tahu, replaces long-serving Ravensdown chief executive Rodney Green.

Campbell said the agricultural sector was the pillar of New Zealand's prosperity. A challenge ahead was to grow the sector in line with government goals, while responding to increasing concerns about the environment. Managing soil, water and air sustainably required all sections of the industry to co-operate, he said. Fairfax NZ
