Following five years working as an area manager for Fonterra covering the area from South Canterbury to Culverden, Peter McCorkindale joined PGG Wrightson and spent five years in rural retail managing the Ashburton retail store and servicing sheep, mixed cropping and dairy farmers throughout Mid Canterbury.
In 2011, an opportunity arose in PGG Wrightson’s head office and he joined the category management team where he was responsible for managing the national retail business of the animal management, feed conservation and dairy shed categories with a combined turnover of more than $50M. This gave Peter a greater understanding of the national retail business from a head office point of view, negotiating terms with suppliers, setting retail pricing, and creating promotions to grow the sales and profitability of the overall PGW retail business.
Peter joined the real estate team on 1 October 2014 and his focus is on marketing rural and lifestyle properties to the local Canterbury market and beyond.
We believe that Peter’s extensive background in farming and rural retail gives him a strong understanding of the fundamentals of the farm business. Working together with the PGW business network will enable Peter to effectively market any rural properties listed to the widest group of buyers available.
