Nuffield scholarship awarded to KVH Board member

16 November 2017

KVH congratulates Board member Simon Cook on his recent Nuffield Scholarship award.

The Nuffield Scholarship is a prestigious award in the primary sector. It has been awarded to New Zealand agricultural leaders for more than 60 years and provides a 12-month scholarship programme with up to 20 weeks spent overseas, allowing participants to observe and learn about global agricultural practices.

Simon has been a Grower Director on the KVH Board since being elected at the August 2016 AGM and has governance roles with several other kiwifruit organisations including being a supply entity director, vice president of the Te Puke Fruit Growers Association, and a member of NZKGI’s executive committee.

KVH Board Chair Adrian Gault said that in the time Simon has been on the KVH Board he has demonstrated leadership and commitment to the kiwifruit industry, which will benefit further from the knowledge he gains through this award.
