The last 5 years for New Zealand's largest rural supply co-operative have been disruptive to ensure they are positioned to support their shareholders into the future.
Newly appointed CEO, Tanya Houghton has a fresh approach to leadership that is being well-received across the board.
Sarah caught up with Tanya as part of Sarah's Country Sisters to discuss how to lead a team in a time of uncertainty, her thoughts on balancing the books of farmers with lower prices and that of the co-operative and her plan to navigate the challenges ahead in her own style of leadership.
Following the recent announcement of an $8.1 million net profit before tax and rebates for the 20/21 financial year described by Chair, Rob Hewett as a pass mark with a $2.7 billion turnover, Tanya has turned her first efforts to people & culture.
Thank you so much to our mates at Farmlands for supporting us this season!
