Martin Weir has a unique affinity with Gallagher. It’s the historical connection with family roots. Martin’s lineage reaches back 125 years of Weirs farming the family land. He’s immensely proud of his hertitage, and appreciates that Gallagher has a similar story.

“I love the fact that Gallagher is family owned. From my Taranaki upbringing, I know that an unbroken line stands for something. It speaks of the solidity behind the family name. The fact that Gallagher has run a successful family business for 80 years is a big reason I joined the team.”

Before Gallagher, Martin worked in sales for Farmlands and NZ FarmSource. For some, sales is about shifting products. For Martin, products are a way to solve problems, something he enjoys doing with Gallagher.

“When I’m out there talking about Gallagher products, I’m always looking to do the right thing by the farmer. I want them to succeed, so if there’s a problem they need solving and I have the equipment that meets their requirements, I’m a happy man.”

When he’s not helping farming, Martin spends most of his time with his young family. He and his wife Shelley have recently welcomed their firstborn son Oliver into the world, so it’s all hands on deck at home. When time allows, you’ll find Martin on a fishing boat with his dad and father-in-law.
