Innes Moffat, one of the deer industry’s longest-serving stalwarts, has resigned after 18 years working for Deer Industry NZ.

Moffat has served as chief executive of DINZ for the past four years, but said after recent changes at the organisation, it is time for someone else to lead it.

Moffat oversaw changes and developments that culminated last year with DINZ refining both its industry-led priorities and processes and a recalibration of its team.

“It’s been a privilege and a pleasure to serve as DINZ’s CEO and lead such a dedicated and hard-working team,” Moffat said.

DINZ chair Mandy Bell paid tribute to Moffat.

“We appreciate everything Innes has done leading our sector through a time of real change,” she said.

“His unwavering support and service to DINZ has had a significant impact on many and we respect his decision to leave after an impressive 18 years with the deer industry.”  The DINZ board and executive remains focused on leading industry change and securing better access for deer products in international markets, Bell said.

Moffat finishes work at DINZ in early March after which he will focus on new career opportunities.
