As the inaugural Chair of Wool Partners International (WPI) from July 2008 to March 2011, I worked with the Board and management team on a drive to reinvigorate New Zealand’s wool industry. Drawing on my international business experience and marketing and branding background, the role gave me an opportunity to make a difference to a major New Zealand export product, with prices significantly rebounding during that period.
