Anthony knows how much easier business is when you have the right person in the right role. This is where he excels as he has a canny ability to team the right candidate to the right job at just the right time.

This Dubliner comes to us with years of experience in the recruitment, management, administration and legal sectors. He’s passionate about delivering superior results and always applies a unique way of thinking, providing some great wins for his clients. Not only does he have experience in the dairy sector – he has a real soft spot for all things rural. He’s been in New Zealand for over five years and loves helping our primary industries with business and training – most of all he’s taking full advantage of the Kiwi lifestyle.

Anthony has great connections across all of Ireland agricultural colleges and attended Waterford Institute of Technology. He is working closely with the colleges and students so that when our borders restrictions ease we are ready to place Irish candidates back on our dairy farms.

In his spare time, he plays football for the Waimak Geal’s and the Canterbury Irish team and in 2019 represented Canterbury in the Australasia state games in Brisbane.
