AWI BoD elects Mr Brian van Rooyen as new Chairman

Apr '08
Ian McLachlan has resigned as Chairman of Australian Wool Innovation (AWI) and will remain on the Board as a Director. Mr McLachlan had previously indicated that he would not be standing for election at the next AWI AGM.

The Board has elected Mr Brian van Rooyen, previously Deputy Chairman, as the new Chairman of AWI.

The Board acknowledged and thanked Mr McLachlan for his service as Chairman of AWI and recognised in particular the contribution Mr McLachlan has made to AWI and the wool industry in leading the whole industry through very difficult and challenging times.

Mr McLachlan's contribution to the industry is over many years from his early days in Wool Council Australia, NFF President and Chairman of the Future Directions Taskforce.

Two very important contributions have been his strength and leadership integrating The Woolmark Company with AWI and building a research and marketing company, and secondly in dealing with animal rights organisations and limiting their impact on our industry and fibre.
