Sir Graeme Harrison has been confirmed to join Methven Care Trust as a Trustee.  Joanna Suyker, MCT Chairperson, said “we are delighted that Sir Graeme has accepted our invitation to join the trust, having someone of this calibre join our team just shows the support that Methven Care Trust has in our community”.

Born in Methven, Graeme returned as a resident in 2010 with his wife Barbara after an absence of 45 years.  In the intervening years he went to university in New Zealand and the United Kingdom, spent 13 years based overseas, founded one of New Zealand’s leading export businesses and represented the country and his business on numerous trade missions and in international forums.

Graeme was the inaugural Chairman of the New Zealand International Business Forum for 8 years, served on national bodies such as the New Zealand-China Council, and has a number of current involvements with Lincoln University.  He has long been associated with the New Zealand meat industry and has held company governance roles for extended periods in seafood and dairy.

Graeme has been honoured by the Governments of New Zealand (2011) and Japan (2015).  In 2010 he was named Federated Farmers Agribusiness person of the year and in 2016 he received the Rabobank Australia and New Zealand Leadership Award.

Graeme’s parents, Kath and Tom Harrison, were residents of Methven House.

Along with Chairperson Joanna Suyker, Graeme joins existing Trustee’s Janine Holland, Jan Anderson, Colin Lill and Roger Henderson.
