Rob Murray

Technology Innovation Manager

Rob comes from a farming background with practical experience that has been instrumental in forging his desire for improving the way we manage our land and optimise business profitably - but not at the expense of environmental sustainability. His PhD studies created a detailed understanding of the fundamental sciences, as well as the cutting-edge technological developments, that are being developed in the competitive landscape that we operate in.

Rob’s former role as Innovation Manager at C-Dax Ltd, and current role as Technology Innovation Manager for Ravensdown, sees responsibility for identifying and guiding research and innovation required for development, analysis, and delivery of the technology products and services. We achieve this through the identification and assessment of emerging tools, disruptive and mainstream technologies, and developing a company culture of ideation, innovation and capability.
