Warwick Daily News - South West Queensland Rural Weekly - - My Smoko Break -

MARK Har­vey-Sut­ton will re­place Brett Point­ing as chief ex­ec­u­tive of the Aus­tralian Live­stock Ex­porters’ Coun­cil.

The group’s in­de­pen­dent chair­man Si­mon Crean wrote to mem­bers and in­dus­try stake­hold­ers ad­vis­ing of the change.

Mr Point­ing has stepped down due to a change in per­sonal cir­cum­stances, which re­quire him to re­turn to Queens­land. Mr Point­ing com­menced as chief ex­ec­u­tive in Oc­to­ber and will fin­ish with ALEC later this month. Mr Har­vey-Sut­ton was re­cruited to ALEC as its man­ager of pol­icy and reg­u­la­tory af­fairs late last year.

“It is with re­gret that Brett is leav­ing and I un­der­stand that it is a de­ci­sion not taken lightly,” Mr Crean said.

“How­ever, per­sonal cir­cum­stances change and we un­der­stand and sup­port Brett’s de­ci­sion.”
