Jonno Hill - Managing Director

Dr Jonno Hill joined Hill Labs immediately after finishing his studies at the University of Canterbury in 2005, where he studied Molecular Biology and Chemistry, and graduated with a PhD in Organic Synthetic Chemistry.

He spent his first four years at Hill Labs in the Analytical Technology groups of the Environmental, and Food and Bioanalytical divisions. Here, he primarily developed methods on the company’s high-tech pesticide residue testing instruments. The following two years, Jonno spent time in an Operational Management role in the company’s Food and Bioanalytical division. In December 2011, he moved into the Senior Management position of Division Manager - Environmental.

After a restructure in 2015, Jonno stepped into the role of General Manager - Technology, overseeing the companies implementation and use of lab and information technology. In May 2018, he took over the Chief Executive Officer role from the departing Dr Matt Glenn.
