Associate Financial Counsellor (Northern Region)
John is originally from Scotland and still has the accent. He grew up in a small agricultural town in the South West of Scotland called Lockerbie. He has grown up on farms in both the UK and Australia. In the UK John gained experience with a mixed operation including dairy, beef, wool and stock lambs and since immigrating his focus has been on dairy.
John graduated with a Bachelor of Business and an Associate Degree in Agribusiness from the University of Tasmania. Since studying he worked as an accountant and an agricultural advocacy officer before joining Rural Business Tasmania.
When John is not working you’ll more than likely find him helping out on his parent’s dairy farm, doing work around his house, playing sports or getting out and seeing the sights of Tasmania.
