New laboratory manager

After several years at the helm, Ryan Johnson, the manager of our Auckland and Hamilton laboratories is leaving in December.  Ryan will remain in the veterinary sector but is escaping the rat-race and will be relocating to the Bay of Plenty.

The new laboratory manager will be Kirstie Fraser who is excited to be joining the Gribbles’ team in the new year.  Kirstie will be leaving her current role running operations for the Food & Bioanalytical division at Hill Laboratories in Hamilton, and will be making the move to Auckland with her partner and two cats.

She has progressed in her career through various scientific industries, starting in pre-clinical research before moving onto medical device R&D and most recently running five analytical chemistry laboratories at Hill’s.

“I am passionate about continuous improvement and look forward to learning and developing in this new role and new life in Auckland” .

Kirstie is looking forward to meeting the team and getting started.
