Russell Stuck

Merchant Relationship Rep Southern SI

Russell joined Ballance in October 2013 to cover the Merchant Relationship role over the Southern South Island. Russell has considerable experience across this geographic area with farming systems, from the soil to finances.


Russell grew up on a farm in Southland and studied at both Lincoln and Massey Universities. He joined Agriculture NZ (for 25 years) as a farm consultant in South Canterbury & Otago, and then as an agricultural trainer, training from a range of new entrants up to farmers completing a Diploma. Russell also ran trainings for merchants completing the Rural Servicing qualification. He then moved to AgITO to cover farm training across South Otago for over 3 years.


Outside of work, Russell lives near Dunedin with his wife and 3 children, loves to get out on his small farm, tinker with vintage cars, and assist with some community work.
