His commitment to fostering a positive and productive work environment results in excellent staff retention and high productivity levels.

Leading by example, he consistently upholds high standards and expects the same from his team.

He excels in working with diverse age groups and personalities and is particularly adept at mentoring the younger generation. Known for maintaining positivity and composure in challenging situations, he effectively creates calm during emergencies and crises.

In addition to being a competent machinery operator with various professional qualifications, he is meticulous in an office setting, using data to monitor, analyze, and improve the performance of all assets under his management.

He has a natural talent for building relationships, negotiating, and conversing at all levels, and is equally comfortable with hands-on work and presenting at the board level. Beyond the farm, he serves as a professional advisor to a well-regarded university and is a charity trustee supporting the agricultural industry.

At this juncture in his career, he is exploring opportunities that would allow him to advance further.
