Name: Bryce Shaw
Your role: Senior Agribusiness Manager
Region: Melbourne, Victoria
What’s your story?
I grew up in South West Victoria on our family sheep and beef cattle farm. After completing a gap year working on a beef cattle breeding and feed lotting operation, I studied at Melbourne University completing a Bachelor of Science – Agriculture. I started at NAB as a graduate.
How have you made a difference?
NAB has continually backed me since I have started, from my peers through to my managers and general managers. They have had faith in my ability to deliver, even at times when I doubted myself. When I started, I was helping smaller family farms buy the paddock next door, which gave me great satisfaction. I now work with large corporates and multinational operations to help them ‘buy the paddock next door’ which still gives me a great sense of fulfilment that my efforts are having a positive impact. Last year I was fortunate to be involved with the NAB Geelong Charity Event, which has raised over $700,000 since it began. Being involved in this event helped me realise firsthand the significant difference that NAB and its employees make to those in the community who really need it.
What are you passionate about?
I’m passionate about spending time with my young family, and I still strive to one day to be farming myself.
I strongly feel that my time spent growing up on our family farm, my study, working for NAB and all of the people that I have met along the way hold me in good stead to be able to farm myself one day.
