Prof Claire Massey BA, MBA, PhD

Director - Agrifood Business

OIUR - Te Puna Whakatipu


My passion is New Zealand, and as Director of Agrifood Business at Massey University my role is to leverage the university’s capability, facilities & knowledge platforms in agriculture, food, health, business, design & social sciences in order to create a better future for New Zealand and the world. I am currently Acting Director of FoodHQ during an exciting period of transition as it farewells founding Director Mark Ward and enters its next stage of development.  In both these roles my focus is accelerating strategy, building capability and driving sustainable growth for firms and communities.
