Welcome Samantha, Craig and Corrine

This mango season we welcome Samantha Frolov, Craig Perring and Corrine Jasper to the mango team.

Samantha has replaced Trevor Dunmall as our Industry Development Manager at AMIA. With previous experience in the mango industry, having worked in Agribusiness since 2010, Samantha is skilled in management and strategic planning. She also prides herself on her ability to build strong relationships, having already established a good network with several mango growers.

Prior to working for AMIA, Samantha was based with Favco in the role of Business Manager for domestic and export produce. Prior to this she held several roles including Category Manager for Mangoes and Avocados for OneHarvest. Samantha is looking forward to working in a role which supports growers and the industry.

Craig Perring and Corrine Jasper are new to the mango portfolio at Hort Innovation. Craig has taken over the management of the marketing program as Elisa King takes on a more senior role in the Hort Innovation Marketing Team as Marketing Programs Manager. Corrine will take over the Relationship Manager role as Astrid Hughes takes on a hybrid Relationship Manager and Marketing Manager role for other tropical fruit.

Craig has a background in horticulture, both educationally and through his career in marketing, and has been working at Hort Innovation for six years across a range of portfolios in both the relationship and marketing space. Corrine has been working at Hort Innovation for two years and has been focused on working with all the various nut industries.

On behalf of the industry we would like to thank Trevor, Elisa and Astrid for all their hard work representing the mango industry.

Hopefully some of you have now met the new team at the pre-season roadshows, but if you haven’t please contact AMIA on (07) 3278 3755 and they will put you in touch.
