Stefan Vogel will lead the New Zealand and Australian arm of the agribusiness bank’s global food and agricultural research division RaboResearch, which includes 10 analysts.
Rabobank has appointed Stefan Vogel to lead its food and agribusiness research division in New Zealand and Australia.
Vogel takes on the role after more than seven years with Rabobank in London, where he held two concurrent global positions with the bank – head of agri commodity markets research and global grains and oilseeds sector strategist.
Based in Sydney, Vogel will lead the NZ and Australian arm of the agribusiness bank’s highly-regarded global food and agricultural research division RaboResearch, which includes 10 analysts.
Rabobank NZ chief executive Todd Charteris said Vogel brought a wealth of knowledge and experience in the global food and agricultural industries to his new role.
“We’re very fortunate to have Stefan heading up our RaboResearch team as he brings with him an international perspective, as well as a proven track record of leading teams to deliver valuable, business-focused sector and commodity research for clients around the world,” Charteris said.
“In his new role, Stefan will oversee the bank’s research agenda and support the RaboResearch team in New Zealand and Australia as they provide market-leading knowledge and insights to our rural and wholesale clients in the region.”
Vogel takes over from Tim Hunt, who left the bank last year.
Prior to joining Rabobank, Vogel worked for more than a decade in strategy and market research positions with international agribusiness Archer Daniels Midland.
