New Zealand pork producer Chris Trengrove has been appointed to the board of directors of the CRC for High Integrity Australian Pork, replacing Sam McIvor as the board representative of essential participant, New Zealand Pork.
Formerly CEO of NZ Pork, McIvor resigned from the board on February 28, after leaving NZ Pork to take up a position with a private meat business in New Zealand.
Announcing the appointment, Pork CRC Chairman, Dr John Keniry, said he expected a smooth transition, as Trengrove has been a director of NZ Pork for the past 15 years and was chairman for nine years.
He said, “Aside from owning and running a 450 sow piggery for the past 30 years in partnership with wife Judith, Chris has other impeccable credentials for a new Pork CRC director, including a decade working in banking, five years chairing the R&D Committee of NZ Pork and five years on the Massey University/NZ Pork Consultative Committee.”
“Significantly, Chris was also very supportive of NZ Pork’s initial decision to join the Pork CRC at its inception in 2005,” Keniry said.
