Innes to leave DINZ


Staff Reporter

After 18 years at Deer Industry New Zealand (DINZ), with four years as Chief Executive Officer (CEO), Innes Moffat has resigned and is set to depart the organisation sometime this month, March 2024.

During his term as CEO, Innes oversaw significant changes and developments which culminated last year with DINZ refining both its industry-led priorities and processes, coupled with a recalibration of its team. With DINZ’s transformation now complete, Innes has decided to make way for a new CEO and focus on new career opportunities.

“It’s been a privilege and a pleasure to serve as DINZ’s CEO and lead such a dedicated and hard-working team. DINZ has been a massive part of my professional life for nearly two decades.

“I wish my colleagues, the Board, and all the amazing people I’ve met in this industry all the very best for their future endeavours,” he said.

Board Chair Mandy Bell paid tribute to Innes’ long-time contribution to the deer industry and thanked him for his loyal service.

“DINZ remains focussed on leading industry change and securing better access for deer products in international markets and that work continues with the full attention of the DINZ Board and Executive.

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