Horticulture New Zealand president Julian Raine has accepted the resignation of the organisation’s long-serving chief executive Peter Silcock.
“We are sad to see Peter go and will miss his industry knowledge and experience. He has served our industry very well.
“Peter has worked for grower representative organisations for 30 years. He played a key role in the establishment of Horticulture New Zealand in 2006 and in the development of the industry’s development strategy, 10/2020.
“He leaves on the very best of terms and with our good wishes.
Peter is pursuing new challenges and has accepted a CEO role with another national organisation outside of the primary industry.
“The board is moving immediately to commence the process of finding a replacement CEO,” Julian says.
