Nigel Parton

Territory Manager - Northland



Nigel Parton Territory Manager

​​Time spent with his dad helping completely re-fence a newly purchased family farm gave Nigel Parton a sound grounding in good fencing skills.

It also sparked his interest in fencing technology and weighing systems that helped farmers make better use of the land and the livestock they farmed.

Nigel considers himself fortunate to be able to take that passion and apply it to his position as Gallagher Territory Manager for Northland. It is a region he knows well, with farmers he knows even better after spending six and a half years working for Farmlands, including time at the Whangarei store, managing the Kamo store and as Northland field manager.

That experience means he is highly familiar with Gallagher equipment and what works well for Northland farmers. Running a small block east of Whangarei means he is also familiar on a daily basis with Gallagher’s reliable, easy to use fencing technology.

“I have always felt a strong affinity for Gallagher’s technology and approach to innovation and user friendly technology. Covering North Auckland to Cape Reinga is a great area to be representing the company, and helping farmers and rural service centres get up to speed with some excellent equipment.”
