David Cossey

Project Portfolio Manager

David shares Moana’s core values of Kaitiakitanga – being custodians for our future generations. It also makes good “business sense” both financially, and in connecting with our people. David wants to do his part as much as he can to help leave the environment in the best possible state for not only his mokopuna, but all future generations.

Emmanuel Malpot

Product Development Manager

Emmanuel believes that as marine farmers, we operate within the public domain; therefore we have a responsibility to respect and protect the water space we’ve been granted access to. He firmly believes that well-managed and innovative aquaculture operations have great social and economic roles to play in coastal communities.

Alyx Pivac

Group Communications Assistant

Alyx feels a strong connection to Aotearoa, and more specifically the ocean as kaitiaki, and believes that the technology, innovation and creativity we are currently capable of means we are in a positive space to make changes and adaptations to ensure sustainability of our resources, businesses and people.
