Ben Dickie

Fonterra Alumni 2017 - 2018

I am currently Deputy Chair of the Taranaki Veterinary Centre Ltd.; Taranaki’s largest vet practice, and a trustee at our local primary school.

Prior to becoming a dairy farmer in 2005, I was an equity analyst in Sydney specialising in mining and minerals. While working in the finance sector I completed the CFA (Chartered Financial Analyst) programme in 2003.

In 2000 I gained a BSc (Hons) in Geology and a BCom in Finance from Otago University.

I was elected to the Fonterra Shareholders’ Council in 2016 and appointed Chair of the Council’s Performance Committee in 2017.

Until 2017 I was the Chair, for seven years, of the West Coast Lessees Association, which represents the interests of around 300 leaseholders of PKW land in Taranaki.
