Meet David Jacobson, Product Quality and Technical Manager based in Wellington.

Z Career: I have worked for Z and previously Shell for around 25 years. Initially I worked in our Laboratory testing the full range of our products at that time – which ranged from solvents, chemicals, agrochemicals, lube oils, grease and fuels. For the past 10 years or so I have been the Technical Manager for Shell, Greenstone and now Z responsible for product quality initially in Oceania and now for Z in New Zealand.

Favourite part of the job: The chance to work on and develop new product offerings and options for our customers, and working on renewable/sustainable energy sources. As well as developing and implementing a robust and effective quality assurance system to ensure that we always supply products that are fit for purpose and meet the customers’ needs.

Vision for the future of Z Energy: Supplier of choice for transport energy offerings. We provide products that have minimal environmental impact that our customers want.

Hobbies/Interests outside of work: Enjoy cycling and running as well as football (round ball proper football). Also have a motorbike that requires some work to get on the road.
