Rob brings over 30 years of corporate, government and academic experience in Australia and Asia and comes to Food Agility from nearly three years of consulting and fixed term assignments. This work included strategy and partnership engagement with the NSW Department of Industry in agriculture, biosecurity and natural resource management, and a business reinvention project with the Australian Institute of Nuclear Science and Engineering.
Ten years ago, Rob immerse himself in study and then research on a PhD thesis that applied complex systems thinking across natural landscapes to improve the sustainability and resilience of food production. Prior to his time in research, Rob worked for a decade in various national and international roles, primarily in the food and beverage industry. He worked within the operational and supply chain disciplines of Coca-Cola based in Sydney and Singapore, and for three years he led the Lancer Corporation’s business growth in Asia based from Hong Kong. The first decade of Rob’s career saw him serve as an officer in the Australian Army.
