Bond­field joins the RIC board

The Western Star - - RURALWEEKL­Y -

HIGHLY re­garded agri busi­ness­woman Prue Bond­field has been ap­pointed a mem­ber of the Re­gional In­vest­ment Cor­po­ra­tion board.

As gen­eral man­ager and di­rec­tor of Pal­grove, a live­stock busi­ness with prop­er­ties in Queens­land and New South Wales, Ms Bond­field has gained sig­nif­i­cant agribusi­ness and farm­ing ex­per­tise.

Ms Bond­field has a back­ground in law and has demon­strated strong cor­po­rate gov­er­nance skills, de­vel­oped through pro­fes­sional train­ing, her own busi­ness en­ter­prise and var­i­ous in­dus­try roles.

She has held po­si­tions as the chair of the Beef In­dus­try Sus­tain­abil­ity Frame­work steer­ing com­mit­tee, a di­rec­tor of the State Man­age­ment Coun­cil for the NSW Live­stock Health and Pest Au­thor­i­ties, and has been a di­rec­tor of the Beef Im­prove­ment As­so­ci­a­tion.

The Re­gional In­vest­ment Cor­po­ra­tion will com­mence its func­tions from July 1 and the board is work­ing hard to es­tab­lish the new en­tity’s op­er­a­tions.

The RIC will ad­min­is­ter the Coali­tion Govern­ment’s $2 bil­lion farm busi­ness con­ces­sional loans pro­gram.
