Having reviewed the current human resource requirements across research for the company, AWI CEO Stuart McCullough said the Board had endorsed his decision to create an expanded position within the company: General Manager, Research.
 
This role will have the responsibility for the following:
 
On Farm Research and Development
Strategy 1: Sheep Health, Welfare and Productivity
Strategy 2: Wool Harvesting and Quality Preparation
Strategy 3: Production Systems & Eco Credentials
Strategy 4: Education and Extension
 
Off Farm Research and Development
Strategy 6: Fibre Advocacy and Eco credentials

Dr Paul Swan is well known to woolgrowers having spent his working life to date in the wool and textile industry, the last 13 years with AWI. Mr McCullough said he was a perfect fit for the role given his deep knowledge of the production of the fibre, its attributes and the global markets in which it is now sold.
