Introducing Tom Berry, our new Territory Manager

We are very pleased to introduce a Territory Manager, Tom Berry based in Auckland . . .

Tom comes from a background of Food and Pharma development and commercialisation. He has been working as an Account Manager for the last 5 years, with the last 2 as a Market Manager handling the sales and supply chain for food, nutrition and pharma raw materials and product development for New Zealand. 

Tom is a self-starter with strong analytical and problem solving skills, has staff management and relationship management skills and is looking forward to developing the analytical food testing business with his existing food network.

When he's not working Tom enjoys getting out in the surf (mainly out west, Maori bay is my home break). During the winter weekends you will find me up Ruapehu, snowboarding, or covered in mud on a mountain bike in Woodhill or Riverhead forests.

Tom is based in Auckland.

Meet the newest addition to our Business Development team

We are very excited to have a new Business Development manager on board, let us introduce Chrissy Bray . . .

Chrissy comes with a wealth of sales, marketing and business management experience gained largely across a range of various health sectors including veterinary, human natural supplements & more recently dental health.
After 12 years within retail sales and management, Chrissy, a trained vet nurse, ventured into territory sales management with Effem Foods. She managed their veterinary specialist diets and premium pet food range for clients across the South Island. After 2 successful years, she joined Boehringer Ingelheim moving into veterinary pharmaceuticals working with small and large animal products and practitioners.  Five years later Chrissy transferred to Western Australia with Boehringer to open up a new territory for them and quickly established a successful business environment. She was relocated back to New Zealand as the National Sales Manager for Boehringer's Veterinary Division, a position she successfully held for more than two years.
Chrissy was asked to join Pfizer Animal Health in their marketing team, managing products within their companion animal segment. There for more than 6 years she marketed: Revolution, the companion animal vaccines portfolio and a third party range of dermatological products, all of which experienced significant year on year growth.
Aside from continuing to study, wanting to further develop marketing skills and widen retail channel experience, Chrissy joined NZ company Douglas Pharmaceuticals marketing the Clinicians range of health supplements, Phloe and Bio Oil for two years. The last 14 months were spent within the dental sector, managing the multi-million dollar equipment portfolio achieving double digit growth for Ivoclar Vivadent, a global dental business supplying dental units and plant equipment to dentists across New Zealand.
Chrissy is very pleased to have joined our business. She is passionate about providing a great customer experience. Her main focus within Gribbles Labnet over the coming months will be building our analytics business with existing customers as well as new business acquisition. 
Chrissy is now based in Christchurch having recently relocated back from Auckland 8 weeks ago. Originally a Cantabrian, Chrissy wanted to be back close to her son and two small gorgeous granddaughters. In her spare time she is a keen photographer, wing shooter and an avid foodie.
