Kerry Russell
General Manager (CE) BVAQ Australia

I joined BVAQ in July 2015, initially based in Christchurch, New Zealand. I relocated to Singapore in early 2016 to head up BVAQ's SEA business, before again relocating to Melbourne in late 2021.

Before joining BVAQ, I had accumulated over 20 years of management experience across the Food and Beverage Primary Sector (infant nutrition, dairy, pet food, seafood, beef and sheep meat) with a focus on international markets in the disciplines of Sales, Marketing and Business Development. I am a dedicated advocate of building strong relationships and passionate about taking business global by developing and executing commercial strategies for business success. I hold an MBA from the University of Canterbury

Being born and raised in New Zealand, I naturally have a keen interest in sports including Rugby (having played or coached for many years), Tennis and Golf. I also love music and these interests are what fill up my leisure time.
