Country Manager - Australia
Will grew up on a farm where his family ran a merino sheep stud in the Central Tablelands of NSW. Will remembers Michael, a local beekeeper (who remains a close family friend to this day) bringing in his bees when the yellow box and stringy bark was flowering - and he remembers how good the honey was! Will has been involved in agriculture his entire career, primarily working in livestock and horticulture. Having worked for Ecrotek since 2017 he now has his own bees and often has to drag himself away to do some ‘real work’!

Having grown up in central NSW on a Beef cattle and grain growing property, David has had for most of his adult life been around Agriculture either as a producer or has worked in areas that support the industry. He is a 7th generation of ‘off the land’ people from his family. He and his family live on a small farm in the Central Tablelands of N.S.W. and continue to engage in food production on a small scale. David took up the opportunity to be a part of the Ecrotek Team in early 2019 and has enjoyed the challenge of learning the process and nature of Beekeeping along with meeting and understanding the needs of Beekeepers in Australia. ‘I got my first hive last spring and am looking forward to growing my hive numbers. It is so interesting and satisfying’

Dave loves travelling and sports – in particular ones that start with an S: Surfing, Squash, Skiing and Soccer.

Alistair was brought on board to future-proof Ecrotek. He is responsible for New Product development and exploring bee and hive research.
