Hardi is developing future ready solutions that help customers to maximise yield while reducing their environmental impacts, optimising management of natural resources and complying with regulatory standards.
Carey's most recent experience in the industry was running a dairy heifer grazing operation on the Catlins Coast of Southland and subsequently as Group Manager of Southland Farm Machinery, the John Deere dealer for Otago and Southland.
In addition to Action Agriculture, Carey and his business partner Matthew Nelson own Action Equipment, an outdoor power equipment dealership with branches in the Waikato and Bay of Plenty.
With a strong focus and background in IT, he has managed various business units and played roles in application development, team management and service delivery among other business functions.
In 2017, Matt and business partner, Carey Brier, purchased Action Equipment, a Bay of Plenty and Waikato based business focused on sales, service and parts supply for the lawn, garden and offroad motorcycle industry. Matt spends the majority of his time overseeing the management of the Action Equipment business, however, still plays an active Directors role in Action Agriculture's leadership and strategic direction.
Matt is passionate about challenging the status quo, fostering a positive team environment and achieving continuous improvement. Outside of work, he enjoys fishing, dirt biking and making the most of life wherever possible.
While starting as a technician, Ian migrated to sales and more recently branch management roles which have seen him spending the majority of his time in the Taranaki and Waikato regions.

Ian has a great affinity with the rural sector and understands the needs of the farming community from a sales, parts and service perspective.
