Roger Dickie - Company Director
B.Ag.Sc, Forester, Farmer, Developer, and Company Director.
Roger is chairman and director of 76 rural investment partnerships.
Roger is married to Mary-Ann and they have four sons. Through his family interests he owns farming and forestry land in the North and South Island and is involved in coastal property development in Taranaki.
Roger's farming interests are in the Rosemount/Awatea Farm, a 1,050 ha property at Waverley in South Taranaki milking 1,460 cows and the grazing of 1,200 other dairy stock.
Since 1971 Roger Dickie has coordinated and developed 89 rural investment syndicates for New Zealand and overseas investors. These cover an area of more than 27,500 ha and are located in the North and South Island. There are more than 2,500 investors in these syndicates many of whom are in more
than one partnership.
He is an executive director and spokesman for the Kyoto Forestry Association (KFA) which represents growers of 250,000 ha of Kyoto compliant forest
in New Zealand. The KFA was formed to oppose the then labour government’s proposal to nationalise carbon credits sequestered in forests planted and
grown by private land owners. Under Rogers leadership KFA invested $600,000 and fought the government for six years to return ownership of forest
carbon credits to the land owners.
Roger led an intensive campaign that involved lobbying and politics at the highest level and resulted in a U turn from government and 100% success for KFA.
This provided the opportunity for all post 1989 forest owners to sell billions of dollars worth of carbon credits that the Labour Government was intending to nationalise.
Today, Roger continues to focus on forestry and agriculture investment opportunities in New Zealand.
