WAFarmers today announced that Andy McMillan has stepped down as Chief Executive Officer of the organisation.
The WAFarmers Board has appointed Deputy Chief Executive Officer and Director of Policy Trevor Lovelle as Acting Chief Executive Officer while they conduct a search for a permanent replacement.
WAFarmers President Dale Park said the Board would like to publicly acknowledge and thank Mr McMillan for his contribution since joining the organisation as Grains Executive Officer nearly 15 years ago. He has since served as Director of Policy before becoming Chief Executive Officer in 2008.
“Andy worked hard to lead WAFarmers through challenging transitions in our industry,” Mr Park said.
“We appreciate his leadership and the many important initiatives he drove on behalf of our members.
“We mutually agreed this was the right time for a leadership transition and wish him well.”
