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.
