GEORGE Scott and Allister Watson have resigned from the boards of Meat and Livestock Australia, Donor Company and Integrity Systems Company to pursue other business opportunities.
The resignations are unrelated and the MLA board is grateful to both men for the contribution each made to the company’s progress and to the industry in their role as MLA directors.
First elected to the MLA Board in November 2013, Mr Scott brought lifelong experience in the north Australian cattle industry to the role and a broad knowledge of beef production systems, resource management, genetic development, breeding programs and land management.
Allister was elected in November 2016 and contributed the benefit of over 30 years’ experience in meat processing and retailing in Australia and New Zealand. He also applied an excellent understanding of lot feeding, backgrounding, value adding, yields and retail ready product offerings.
The MLA Board Selection Committee is scheduled to hold its first meeting for 2018 in April, at which it will formulate the skills required for candidates in this year’s selection process.
Successful nominees are recommended for election at the company’s AGM, which will be held in Canberra on 21 November.
