“The Board of Angus Australia is delighted to welcome Scott into this important role for the future of the organisation,” Mr White said.
“Scott ticks all the boxes needed to continue the success of Angus Australia into the future.
“His selection came after an exhaustive executive search process conducted with the assistance of Rimfire Resource.”
Mr Wright and his wife Julie and family live at Glencoe, near Glen Innes NSW where they conduct a small commercial beef enterprise.
Mr Wright has extensive experience in various facets of agribusiness during his career. He began working with Angus Australia in June 2018 as a Member Services Officer and was elevated to the position of Member Services Manager later that year.
In these roles Mr Wright is already well known to many members and other stakeholders of Angus Australia.
Departing CEO, Dr Peter Parnell stated that he is delighted that the Angus Australia Board had selected Mr Wright for the role among the several very high calibre candidates for the position.
Dr Parnell will continue in the role as Angus Australia CEO until late February 2022 prior to handing over the role to Mr Wright.
