AMIA has a new Chairman
AMIA held its annual general meeting on Tuesday evening at Mutchilba (just west of Mareeba). Gavin Scurr, Ben Martin and Greg McMahon all stood for re-election and members present approved their nominations.
Mareeba mango grower, Matt Fealy has joined the Board, replacing Kieren Brown. Following seven years as an AMIA Director and the past 4 years as Chairman, Gavin did not renominate for the role of Chairman. The Board appointed Greg McMahon as AMIA’s new Chairman and Ben Martin was re-elected as Deputy Chairman.
Greg takes over the role of AMIA Chairman from Gavin Scurr, who has held the position for four years. Greg is co-owner of family business, Seven Fields, a mango and citrus producer in the Northern Territory and Sunraysia, Victoria. He has been involved in horticultural production for a large portion of his career and brings to the role extensive experience in production and marketing. He was appointed to AMIA as a Director in 2015, representing the interests of growers in Southern Western Australia, South Australia and Victoria.
In accepting his new position Greg thanked Gavin for his commitment and dedication to the industry, not only in his work as Chairman but also as an AMIA Director for the past seven years. Gavin will remain on the Board for another 3 years as Director, representing the Northern Territory and northern Western Australia.
Greg said that AMIA would remain committed to building grower profitability through its focus on quality, increasing market demand (both domestically and internationally), and ensuring excellent communication throughout all sectors within the supply chain.
