Mr Macaulay joins WPMA having been the chief executive of the New Zealand Institute of Primary Industry Management (NZIPIM), the peak industry body representing more than 1,00 farm advisers and rural professionals that provide advice and services to the farming community.

Mr Macaulay has developed an impressive record in building and developing high performing organisations within the primary industry. During his time with NZIPIM, Stephen was instrumental in establishing and implementing the strategy, drive and enthusiasm that transformed the organisation into becoming a highly recognised and influential body representing the interests of its members.

He will be starting his role as WPMA’s chief executive in January 2022 and is looking forward to meeting the membership in the early part of his tenure to develop a more in depth understanding of the industry.
