WAFarmers welcomes the appointment of the incoming chair of the board of directors of the Sheep CRC, Duncan Fraser. As a former President of the National Farmers’ Federation, Mr Fraser will ensure funding continues for the Sheep CRC and interests of rural communities are heard and acted upon as far as innovative R&D is concerned.
Mr Fraser will take up the position on October 1, when the seven-year term of out-going chair John Keniry ends.
He brings to the role more than 20 years of experience with various State, Federal and commodity agri-political organisations.
“Proper adherence to corporate governance principles has been fundamental to my involvement in these organisations,” Mr Fraser said.
