Senior Leadership Team

Geoff Corbett

ACTING CHIEF EXECUTIVE OFFICER - LIC AUTOMATION


Responsibilities: Bull Acquisition, Deer Improvement, Diagnostics, Animal Health, Genetics & Herd Tests.


BACKGROUND


Originally from the Awatere Valley south-east of Blenheim (educated at Marlborough Boys' High), Geoff worked on sheep & beef and cropping farms in between semesters while studying at university.

He has spent time working for LIC in both sales and scientific product areas, although he has also spent time as a business development manager for a biotech start-up.

Geoff says he has a real passion for the application of biological sciences on-farm.

Providing practical solutions for major issues facing New Zealand dairy farmers is the goal for Geoff's team: He says his job is about "maintaining and developing" - which includes consolidating on the work already done across traditional LIC products (Herd Testing, Genetics), and building on opportunities in diagnostics (parentage testing, animal health treatments). "Environment and nutrition is also a big space for us, so there's some exciting prospects on the horizon," he says.

Geoff lives in Matangi near Hamilton, and is married with three teenage children. In his spare time he follows a variety of sport and enjoys tramping throughout the South Island.



QUALIFICATIONS: Masters degree in molecular biology (MSc), University of Canterbury
YEARS OF SERVICE: Joined LIC in 2001
