Six new directors for CRDC board
Sep '17
Six new directors have been appointed to the Cotton Research and Development Corporation (CRDC) board. The directors come from diverse backgrounds across the cotton, agriculture, science, education and commercial sectors. CRDC is the Australian cotton industry’s RD and E investment body, jointly funded by Australian cotton growers and the Government.

The appointments have been made by minister for agriculture and water resources Barnaby Joyce.

Led by incumbent Chair Richard Haire and CRDC’s executive director Bruce Finney, the CRDC’s board will also comprise former directors Kathryn Adams, Liz Alexander and Greg Kauter, who have each been returned for a second term on the CRDC Board, and new directors Dr. Jeremy Burdon, Prof Les Copeland, and Rosemary Richards.

Haire welcomed the directors, who come from a diverse range of backgrounds across the cotton, agriculture, science, education and commercial sectors.

“The role of CRDC is to drive innovation in the Australian cotton industry through investing in research, development and extension (RD&E) on behalf of cotton growers and the Australian Government,” Haire said.

“Our role in working with the industry to set and invest in research priorities is critical – ensuring our industry remains profitable, sustainable and competitive into the future. One of the great strengths of the CRDC board has long been its diversity, with directors each utilising a range of skills to help drive the organisation – and the industry – forward. This announcement is no exception,” he said. “I welcome Kathryn, Liz and Greg back to the CRDC Board, and Jeremy, Les and Rosemary to the Board for the first time.

“I look forward to working with the Directors over the coming years to ensure CRDC continues to achieve strong outcomes on behalf of growers, the Government and the wider industry,” he said.

“I thank outgoing deputy chair and cotton grower Cleave Rogan and director Michael Robinson for their invaluable contribution to the board over the past six years,” Haire said and added “The focus for the new board will be to ensure the cotton industry continues to be well prepared for the future. I look forward to working with my fellow CRDC directors to achieve this.” (SV)
