Jamie hails from Kaiwaka, where he started farming after high school and worked on a number of dairy farms in the district before heading to the big smoke and a stint in tourism.
'I saw the light in 2010 and have returned to my roots. I missed the time outdoors, and the satisfaction that comes from working with the land and animals and farmers – that’s why I came back.'
Starting out as a sales consultant with the company, Jamie was promoted to the role of sales manager in April 2012.
Educated on the region’s farms, Jamie works hard to keep his weight down so he can play his rugby in the lightweight division.
