Virbac Australia's Commercial Manager recognised as a finalist in the 2016 Telstra NSW Business Women's Award



Virbac Australia’s Commercial Manager, Sarah Hunter has been named as a finalist in the 2016 NSW Telstra Business Awards. 

The highly sought after Awards not only recognise Australia’s most exceptional business women but are a symbol of business excellence.

John Embling, General Manager Virbac Australia said: “Sarah is one of the most senior women in the $1Bn animal health market in Australia and her selection as a finalist in these Awards is a fitting accolade and we are thrilled that her contribution to the industry has been given the recognition it deserves.”

With experience spanning two decades and two continents, Sarah says she sees her role as a finalist as an opportunity to promote Australian agriculture - and animal health - as a vibrant and exciting industry in which to build a career. 

“I am a proud Agricultural Science graduate from the University of Sydney and I love to showcase the myriad – and sometimes not immediately obvious – pathways that exist for those whose passion is for agriculture and veterinary science,” she said.

“It is also great to show the way in which progressive leadership and business approaches fit naturally with creative problem-solving - a cornerstone of both agricultural and veterinary innovation” she added. 

Since joining Virbac Australia in 2004, Sarah and her team have been unlocking value at all levels by asking, “why not?” and breaking new ground in the way they do business and she says, anyone can do it. 
 “All you need is to be prepared to test yourself, back yourself and not be afraid to tread a different path to everyone else.”

Sarah is a finalist in the Corporate and Private Award category and will attend the Gala Dinner at Doltone House in Pyrmont on 11 October 2016 where the 2016 Telstra NSW Business Women’s Award winners will be announced.

“We wish Sarah every success at the Awards and hope to see her contend the national award next month,” said John.
