Warragul & Drouin Gazette - - FARM SCENE -

Two new board mem­bers were ap­pointed to Dairy Aus­tralia at the com­pany’s an­nual gen­eral meet­ing last week.

David Lord and Roseanne Healy were elected to the board and James Mann was re-ap­pointed to fill the di­rec­tor va­can­cies, each of the three roles re­quir­ing unique skills and ex­per­tise.

The new ap­point­ments fur­ther strengthen Dairy Aus­tralia’s fo­cus on the whole of sup­ply chain, pro­cess­ing, mar­kets, food and sus­tain­abil­ity.

Af­ter ful­fill­ing an ini­tial term on the board of Dairy Aus­tralia, James Mann has been re-elected as a di­rec­tor to fill the milk pro­ducer position on a three-year term.

James brings to the board over 30 years’ ex­pe­ri­ence in the dairy in­dus­try, hav­ing been in­stru­men­tal in de­vel­op­ing one of Aus­tralia’s lead­ing dairy busi­nesses, Dono­van’s dairy­ing and was also the Chair of the DairySA board for 10 years.

David Lord has been elected to fill the three­year term di­rec­tor role with a dairy pro­cess­ing back­ground, for his ex­ten­sive ex­pe­ri­ence in fast­mov­ing con­sumer goods and in­dus­trial food prod­ucts.

David pre­vi­ously served as chief ex­ec­u­tive and man­ag­ing di­rec­tor of Par­malat Aus­tralia, War­rnam­bool Cheese and But­ter and most re­cently, Sa­puto Dairy Aus­tralia.

Roseanne Healy, has been elected to the board for a two-year term, fill­ing the agribusi­ness, in­no­va­tion and adop­tion va­cancy.

Roseanne’s strong ex­pe­ri­ence in the agri­cul­ture sec­tor spans across her cur­rent board roles in­clud­ing deputy chair of the Grains Re­search and De­vel­op­ment Cor­po­ra­tion, chair of Dairysafe and chair of VineHealth Aus­tralia.
