Potatoes New Zealand appoints new CEO

Potatoes New Zealand has appointed Kate Trufitt as its new chief executive last month, according to a report by HortNews.

A director of Horticulture NZ, she has held many roles in the horticulture sector. According to the Potatoes NZ website, Trufitt has a great breadth of experience from plant nursery, growing, postharvest and processing through to the market – both domestic and export.

This experience has been gained across several horticultural crops. With a career started in marketing and operational logistics, Trufitt then turned her skills to human resources, compliance, health & safety and more recently sustainability.

She has been involved in senior management and governance roles and believes this gives a perfect balance of experience to take the helm of Potatoes NZ.
