AUSTRALIA, North Sidney. Meat & Livestock Australia (MLA) members will be asked to vote on the election of three nominees as Directors of MLA at the upcoming Annual General Meeting (AGM) – including one first-time nominee – as endorsed by the Board Selection Committee.
This year, applicants with extensive knowledge in strategic R&D and portfolio analysis in the food industry, Northern cattle production systems and Production and supply chain systems, including an understanding of key drivers of red meat customer demand, with proven ﬁnancial acumen, were encouraged to apply.
As a result, the Selection Committee has endorsed three nominees for election as Directors of MLA. Those are: food science and agribusiness specialist with extensive strategic research experience in both executive and non-executive levels in food and food related companies Dr Michele Allan (MLA Chair & Director), northern cattle production systems, including live export, sustainability, infrastructure, MSA and Genetics specialist George Scott (current Director of MLA), and specialist in production and supply chain systems and meat retailing in Australia and New Zealand Allister Watson.
Current MLA board director Lucinda Corrigan did not re-nominate and after nine years of dedicated service to the MLA Board, her term will end in November 2016.
