Peter Amer ‘starting again’ as AbacusBio director

Peter Amer

Peter Amer is the new managing director at AbacusBio.

Dr Amer has worked as a scientist at the Dunedin-based agribusiness consulting company since its inception in 2001 and takes over from Sharl Liebergreen who remains in the business.

Dr Amer grew up on a dairy farm in North Canterbury and studied agricultural science at Lincoln. After a year-long exchange at Oregon State University, he finished his degree and did an internship at AgResearch, working at its Ruakura research centre. He then completed his PhD in Canada.

That was followed by a year in Switzerland and two years in Edinburgh before spending six months driving through Europe — his wife is from Serbia — and returning to New Zealand. He worked at Invermay for four years before joining AbacusBio.
