Robyn joined the INZ Board in November 2016. She is the Chief Executive for North Otago Irrigation Company Limited (NOIC) and has also held senior management positions in the USA and Australia, primarily in the cooperative-based renewable fuels industry. She is a director on the Waitaki Irrigators Collective representing almost 80,000 hectares of irrigated land off the Waitaki River.
The contribution Robyn wants to make to the IrrigationNZ board is based on her experiences in the irrigation industry, including the recent development and implementation of a $60 million expansion project for NOIC. She also brings regulatory and planning experience as part of a collective.
“As an IrrigationNZ director I would envisage participating in the development of a cohesive, resilient and value creating strategy. Our members need to feel listened to, respected and professionally represented at a national level and I believe I have the strategic, communication and governance skills to contribute.”
