Sarah has worked in innovation, business development and management roles within the agricultural industry for over 25 years. She has grown small start-up agricultural companies in genetics, Ultrafine Merino wool and arable foods into substantial, globally recognised businesses.
Creating added-value products and transitioning businesses from selling products to solutions have been key to success. When not at work Sarah is a ‘hands-on’ farmer on their hill country sheep and beef property on the north side of the Raglan Harbour. This ‘grassroots’ farming experience enables her to clearly understand the problems farmers are trying to solve.
