Rob brings over 30 years of corporate, government and academic experience in Australia and Asia. A decision to change career direction nearly a decade ago saw Rob immerse himself in study and then research which culminated in a PhD applying complex systems thinking to food production. He comes to Food Agility from nearly three years of consulting and fixed term assignments including work on strategy and partnership engagement with NSW Local Land Services in agriculture, biosecurity and natural resource management, and a business reinvention project with the Australian Institute of Nuclear Science and Engineering.
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.
