Cattle Council appoints its first female CEO
CATTLE Council of Australia has announced Margo Andrae as chief executive officer.
Ms Andrae has been acting chief executive officer since August after joining the Cattle Council in March this year managing the organisation’s governance, communications and industry engagement activities. Cattle Council president Howard Smith said the appointment of Ms Andrae provided the Cattle Council stability and leadership as the industry moves forward in a challenging environment over the coming years.
“Margo’s leadership will bring new direction and a stronger focus on communications, stakeholder engagement and advocacy within the Australian cattle industry,” he said.
Ms Andrae was heavily involved in the National Vocational Education reform process on behalf of the food and agribusiness sector.
