Karl George Burgess is the Operations Manager and Founder of BD14 LTD, a Manawatu based professional solutions company which was established in early 2014. Karl is from an extremely hard-working family farming background and was successful in buying his first farm by the age of 30. This farm held great significance, as it had been handed down through the generations of his family and was the land that he was brought up on and where he gained his dairy farming expertise alongside his father, George. While growing up on the farm, like most young boys, Karl had a love for big machinery, trucks, diggers and tractors. You name it, if it was big, Karl wanted to learn how to drive it!!
