10122015 WONZ Names New Chief Executive


Rosstan Mazey


MARIETTA, GA - Wools of New Zealand has appointed Rosstan Mazey as its new chief executive.

Mazey previously was the global marketing manager at fresh produce grower and exporter Turners & Growers. He also has held senior marketing and innovation roles at Zespri and Dairy Crest in the UK where he has built a depth of experience and successful track record in marketing quality New Zealand products globally.

"Rosstan brings a keen appreciation of international brand development and an understanding of the importance of building and maintaining relationships with stakeholders across the value chain," said Mark Shadbolt, Wools of New Zealand chairman. "These are areas we need to focus on as we drive our targeted market pull strategy."

Mazey, who has a Bachelor of Commerce degree and a Law degree from the University of Otago, noted, "There aren't any quick fixes to the profitability of the New Zealand wool industry. But as a relatively new entity, Wools of New Zealand is certainly headed in the right direction with a focus on adding value at both the supply and the market end."

Mazey and Shadbolt visited markets in the United Kingdom and the United States in September to meet with shareholders and brand partners. Mazey is based in Christchurch, New Zealand.
