Chris commenced his career in the fertiliser industry (Omnia and Sasol) where he worked for 8 years before spending another 2 years at Nietvoorbij Institute for Viticulture and Oenology.
His interest has always been in the science of irrigation, and when the opportunity arose to work for a drip irrigation company, the decision to join Netafim in 1995 was an easy one.
During this time, Chris was working 50% for Netafim and 50% for Haifa Chemicals to promote the concepts of drip irrigation and fertigation. Later, Netafim appointed him full-time. Today, he manages the agronomy department.
Working with colleagues that believe in the excellence of the product they are selling is a privilege for him and he is positive about the future.
