Clive Jermy OMNZ, a well-known red deer stud breeder, has been appointed to the board of Deer Industry New Zealand (DINZ) for a three-year term. He is one of four producer board members, replacing Tim Aitken, Hawkes Bay.
Jermy is a former board chair, standing down in 2007. Before that he was chair of the New Zealand Deer Farmers’ Association (NZDFA).
NZDFA selection and appointments panel chair David Stevens said the panel had interviewed three skilled and talented candidates and the decision process was extremely challenging. The unsuccessful candidates were Tim Aitken, who stood for re-election and Otago-based businessman and deer farmer Grant Cochrane.
Clive Jermy’s farm, Stanfield’s European Red Deer Stud, is in Darfield, Canterbury.
