Beef + Lamb New Zealand chairman Mike Petersen has welcomed the addition of Mr Clarkson to the board, noting his considerable industry knowledge and experience in both sheepmeat and beef processing and marketing.

Before beginning his current role with ANZCO Foods Ltd in March 2004, Mr Clarkson was the CEO of ANZCO subsidiary CMP Canterbury Ltd for 10 years. He built strong relationships with customers, employees, shareholders and farmer producers.

Before that Mr Clarkson was the general manager of Five Star Beef Limited, a 50:50 joint venture with Itoham and ANZCO, and he is also a council member of the MIA.

In addition to the six farmer-elected board members, Beef + Lamb New Zealand has two processor-exporter representatives of which Mr Clarkson is one and Craig Hickson of Progressive Meats is the other.

Mr Clarkson replaces Keith Cooper, the CEO of Silver Fern Farms, who had sat on the B+LNZ Board since 2009.
