Samuel Parkinson

Technical Adviser

If you ever want to know anything about the electric fence; ask Samuel.  He’s studied them, worked with them and had them on his family’s farm.  Samuel is working in our Hamilton Patents Team as a Technical Advisor, not just on electric fences but on all things electronic.

In his spare time, Samuel likes to spend time with his family, explore the great outdoors by hiking the many trails around New Zealand, gaming, playing chess, building and welding.
