Board of Directors
Marcus graduated Lincoln University 2002 and joined the NZW team in 2003. During this time he developed and managed 400Ha of vineyards throughout the South Island as Vineyards Manager for the NZW Group for 8 years.
In 2008 Marcus and good friend Nigel George co-founded the KLIMA vine pruning system that has changed and continues to change the way people prune vineyards and drive the labour costs out of pruning for growers all over the world. As a grape grower himself Marcus has a passion for helping fellow grape growers to grow their businesses.
These days Marcus shares his time between NZW as a director the KLIMA business (trellis division) and his family business, Ormond Nurseries Ltd where he is General Manager. In his spare time Marcus coaches rugby and enjoys the outdoors as well as sharing a Chardonnay with friends.
