Camm to chair beef board
Former deputy takes over reins
A REPLACEMENT has been named for the new chairman of Beef Australia after Blair Angus announced his retirement after this year’s expo.
The new chairman will be Bryce Camm, who was previously the vice chair.
Mr Camm is from Dalby and is CEO of his family’s Camm Agricultural Group, a beef enterprise with interests across Queensland.
He has managed the group’s award winning Wonga Plains feedlot for 10 years, overseeing the operation to triple in size.
He grew up in North Queensland and has a degree in Business Administration and Communications from Bond University.
Mr Camm welcomed the challenge of taking on the role of chairman for the next three years.
“It’s an honour and privilege to be voted into this position to continue to build on the growth and success of Beef Australia into 2021,” he said.
Retiring Beef Australia chairman Mr Angus was first to welcome the new chair and thanked the departing directors for their years of volunteer service to the event.
“Susan McDonald, Noel Grant, Brett Kirk, Allison McKay and Bruce Young have been invaluable contributors to the event over the years and we sincerely thank each of them for their service,” he said.
“Despite standing down as chairman I will continue to stay on as a director to provide some continuity in an environment of significant change and to support what I feel is the greatest beef event in the world.”
A new board of directors and chairman will lead Beef Australia into 2021 following the 2018 Beef Australia annual general meeting.
Beef Australia members voted in five new directors, who together with five existing directors, will make up the 2021 Board.
Along with the new board announcement, final interviews are being conducted for the CEO position, with the new appointment expected to start early 2019.
NEW CHAIR: Bryce Camm is the new chairman of Beef Australia.
