Jules Benton

Chief Executive Officer

Passionate about life and fitness, Jules encourages everyone to live their best life. She does anything that involves keeping fit and healthy, enjoys hanging out with her favourite people, loves music, and is obsessively grateful to live in New Zealand.

Her enthusiasm for connecting and making a difference in dairy is infectious and at Dairy Women’s Network she is committed to providing all the opportunities possible for the team and members to fulfil their career aspirations, no matter where they are on their journey. She knows people are at the heart of who the Dairy Women’s Network is, conscious the network is about connection and being a place for all.

What stands out the most about Jules is that she loves storytelling. Women are great storytellers and it is the stories that women share that bind us together. It’s how we learn, laugh, grow and challenge ourselves every day.

Jules’s favourite quote is from Maya Angelou (1928-2014) who said, ‘I’ve learned that people will forget what you did, but people will never forget how you made them feel.’
