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.
