AMIA announces new Chairman

Greg McMahon has been elected as AMIA’s 5th Chairman following the Annual General Meeting held in Mutchilba (Mareeba) on 10 May 2016. 

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.

Ben Martin has been re-elected as Deputy Chairman and remains as a Director representing Far North Queensland and North Queensland.
