FOUNDING CHAIRMAN Graeme Clegg is the founder of the New Image group of companies. Since its inception over 25 years ago Graeme has been a pioneer in the development of colostrum products and his knowledge of the nutrition industry has seen him become a regular speaker at international industry conferences. 2009 is Graeme’s ‘second coming’ to the Ernst & Young Entrepreneur of the Year Awards. A 2003 category winner, he decided to make the return foray for the reason his list of achievements has continued to grow since then: a New Zealand Stock Exchange listing; a tenfold increase in turnover; a successful launch into two more countries; the development of retail pands and FMCG as well as the direct sales lines; and the creation of a scientific division for product development and support; and the building of two manufacturing plants to keep up with demand.
