Greg Lazzaro

 

Greg comes an executive management career spanning the corporate landscape for over 20 years and looks to continue to engage in the areas I enjoy; working with people, delivering solutions and finding ways to add value.

He relocated across the ditch to Aotearoa, nearly 8 years ago to join Fonterra in a global Health, Safety and resilience role, and was associated in the early stages with the Safety Working Group within the Food & Grocery Council. Through this he became familiar with the challenges across the group.

Most recently Greg was with Waka Kotahi (New Zealand Transport Agency) where he was involved with safety on NZ roads and the constant battle to influence urgency in the quest to influence driving behaviour, reducing harm and preventing death & serious injury. Greg was part of establishing the Road to Zero programme, something which he intends to keep focus on and working towards in the quest to keep our industry sector aware of this important space we all rely upon.

 

ShopCare is in a great position to extract the benefit from many parts of the Health, Safety & Wellbeing systems we are all involved with.
