Vicky Taylor

Food & Beverage

My core experience is in consumer driven businesses across FMCG, Tourism and Hospitality. Starting in sales and marketing for leading FMCG businesses, I developed a detailed understanding of global best-practice strategy, marketing and commercial processes in New Zealand, Australia, South East Asia, China and the US.

Then I applied that experience in an entrepreneurial and start up business – Smartfoods (the makers of Vogel’s breakfast cereal) as shareholder and COO for over 10 years. Growing the business to be a leader in the NZ market, and exporting to over 5 countries, employing more than 40 people.

Then throw in over 20 years of governance experience across a variety of sectors, with skills in compliance, health and safety and people and performance.

I am currently on sabbatical, and working on a range of different projects.

I am here to help.
