VANESSA Win­ning starts work to­day as Ir­ri­ga­tion New Zealand’s new chief ex­ec­u­tive, based in its new Wellington head­quar­ters.

In a state­ment, INZ said Ms Win­ning was a strate­gic ex­ec­u­tive leader with more than 20 years’ ex­pe­ri­ence in the agri­cul­ture, bank­ing and cor­po­rate sec­tors, with ex­cel­lent stake­holder man­age­ment and en­gage­ment skills.

She was most re­cently gen­eral man­ager, farm per­for­mance, at DairyNZ where she led a large team to help farm­ers im­prove their busi­nesses and re­duce en­vi­ron­men­tal im­pacts.

Ir­ri­ga­tionNZ chair­woman Keri John­ston said Ms Win­ning had the strate­gic vi­sion to lead the sec­tor in the right di­rec­tion.

The or­gan­i­sa­tion has es­tab­lished a new po­si­tion of re­gional pol­icy and plan­ning man­ager, taken on by El­iz­a­beth Soal who was the pre­vi­ous chief ex­ec­u­tive.
