New CEO appointed

The board of McGrath Nurseries 2019 Limited is pleased to announce the appointment of Derek Edwards as Chief Executive Officer, effective 1 June 2020.

The board is thrilled to have attracted an experienced leader of Derek’s calibre to lead McGrath Nurseries, a company with a long history of supplying high-quality apple, cherry and stone-fruit trees to orchardists throughout New Zealand.

Derek brings considerable horticulture experience and expertise to McGrath Nurseries. Previously, he was a senior leader at Seeka, a publicly-listed horticulture business, and before that, Chief Executive of Naturally Native NZ Plants, a large nursery business.

Derek is looking forward to building on the foundation laid by Andy McGrath, working with our customers and suppliers, and contributing to the growth and development of the horticulture sector in New Zealand.
