GEOFF RAWCLIFFE, BCom Ag (VFM)
Geoff has a longstanding career in rural banking where he is now a Client Director - Corporate Agribusiness and also a member of the BNZ’s Agribusiness Senior Leadership Team. He has a real passion for the rural sector having grown up on a farm and has worked with farming businesses in a wide range of sectors and sizes throughout his career.
Geoff brings a strong financial and governance capability to the table and is focused on well planned outcomes for both the Waikato Farmers Trust and the wider rural communities within the Waikato region. He is also eager to utilise his extensive network across the Waikato to ensure the Trust is well known and is contributing to areas where it is needed most.
He was attracted to the Trustee role by the work that is being carried out to attract and retain talent in the rural sector plus helping smaller rural communities.
