Prior to taking up the new role, Hutchings was a Group Manager for OSPRI, a partnership between primary industries and government to manage the NAIT and TBfree programmes. He has had experience as Acting Chief Executive there, as well as at the Animal Health Board.

Hutchings comes to the kiwifruit industry experienced in management of biosecurity risks, developing research and innovation programmes, and working on a day-to-day basis with farmers and growers, alongside industry and government.

His focus is to get out and meet growers and industry people, and ensuring there is full representation for all kiwifruit growers (through KVH) to protect orchards and livelihoods from our most unwanted and destructive pests and pathogens.
