He completed postgraduate work in marketing at the Australian Graduate School of Management (AGSM) during this time and completed the Fonterra Governance Development Programme in 2015.
Moving into business ownership, Malcolm joined what is now Go-Bus, where he was a shareholder, Director and Chief Financial Officer.
After selling Go-Bus and now with 11 years of experience in the supermarket industry, Malcolm has become a passionate ‘grocer’. He is currently a Director of Foodstuffs North Island Ltd, a member of the Audit, Risk & Compliance Committee and is the New World Committee Chair.
