ROSS, Gavin S

ROSS, Gavin S Photograph Gavin Ross is Vice President of Business Development for HortResearch (USA), a U.S. subsidiary of HortResearch, a New Zealand fruit research company. He has held a number of positions within HortResearch. In the 1990s, he established a laboratory that focused on the genes and enzymes involved in apple fruit ripening. In 1997, he took over the leadership of the postharvest science group of HortResearch, which was one of the largest research groups in this area in the world. Three years later, he was part of the team that raised the funds to launch HortResearch’s fruit genomics program, and he led the program in its early phases. In recent years, he has made the transition from science to business development. His experience includes several years working at a publicly listed New Zealand biotechnology company. In his current role, he represents HortResearch in the U.S. market and is building a genuine presence for the company in North America. He is actively involved in product development and support, as well as technology licensing.
