What is your role at Monsanto?
My role is Supply Chain Lead ANZ for Vegetables.
What is your initial observation of the ANZ vegetables team?
They are a very professional, knowledgeable and high achieving group with a genuine passion for what they do. They have all been accommodating and friendly and made me feel very welcome.
What is your professional background?
My background has been in manufacturing and heavy industry predominantly in Steel and Aluminum manufacturing and distribution, covering both domestic and international markets. My most recent role was with Alcoa in Geelong where I spent 4.5 years as their Metal Supply and Logistics Manager. I have a Bachelor of Business (Transport & Logistics Management) from RMIT University and I am a certified Lean Six Sigma Black Belt.
What do you like doing in your spare time?
My spare time is made up of lots of sport, both competing and watching, travel, building timber furniture and of course, being a Melbournian, all things food. I’m a big fan of seeking out interesting and exotic food and I also love to cook.
What is your favourite vegetable and why?
It would have to be green beans. I find myself using them all the time and I like their versatility. From simply as a side with a nice steak, or as in ingredient in a fiery curry I just love them!
