Apr '13
Cotton Australia, the peak representative body for Australia’s cotton growing industry, has made two new staff appointments.

Sandy Young has been appointed Regional Manager with responsibility for the Namoi, Gwydir, Walgett and Bourke districts. She is based at Cotton Australia’s Narrabri, NSW office.

Responsibilities include communicating important issues to growers, promoting policy initiatives and managing grower feedback on key issues and research direction.

“Sandy has a wealth of experience in cotton - she was Operations Manager of the Australian Cotton Exhibition Centre for more than four years in Narrabri, and won recognition as ‘Young Achiever of the Year’ at the Cotton Industry Awards,” says Cotton Australia CEO Adam Kay.

“She was also Grower Services Administrator and then Grower Services Relationship Manager for Namoi Cotton at Wee Waa, and is a graduate of the Future Cotton Leaders program.”

Cotton Australia has also appointed Amy Brazier as Customer Service Officer for Cotton Australia’s myBMP program, based in the organisation’s Toowoomba, Queensland office. myBMP is the best practice system for Australia’s cotton industry.

Amy’s responsibilities include liaising with cotton growers and assisting them in using the myBMP system, plus database management.

“Amy has farming in her blood – she grew up on a dairy farm in the South Burnett, completed a traineeship in the energy sector, then began study for a Bachelor of Business at the University of Southern Queensland,” says Cotton Australia CEO, Adam Kay.

“Both Sandy and Amy bring a great deal of knowledge to Cotton Australia. We welcome their contribution to the industry and cotton growers.
