David Mathias

David has enjoyed dairy farming for 20 years, of which 10 have been spent managing large herds. Approximately  half of  David’s career has been spent in the Waikato and the other half here in the Hawkes Bay. David has returned to BEL Group as the Manager at Parkhill after managing in Waikato.

Before Dairy farming David was a soldier in the NZ Army and so has a strong team atmosphere with lots of training on farm. David’s strengths in leadership gained during that time has been pivotal in teaching a lot of people that have gone on to become managers themselves.

David believes in leading by example and is good at helping people to be the best that they can be.
