Lock a key pick to fill CBH board seat
Prominent agribusiness leader David Lock will become an independent director on the Co-operative Bulk Handling board, replacing David Willis who is retiring after nine years in the role.
CBH chairman Wally Newman said Mr Lock would further broaden the skills and experience of the CBH board, bringing a deep understanding of the Australian agribusiness industry.
Mr Lock has held director and senior executive level roles across the food, agribusiness and manufacturing sectors.
He is chairman of the integrated agribusiness Mareterram as well as Australian Pork and the Western Australia Meat Industry Authority, and is the deputy chairman of the Water Corporation.
Mr Lock is also a non-executive director of Odeum Produce and Food, Fibre, Land International, and a member of the Curtin Business School Advisory Council.
Prior to joining Mareterram, Mr Lock was managing director and chief executive of the Craig Mostyn Group for 12 years.
In 2012, he was named NAB Agribusiness Leader of the Year and in 2013 he won the Australian Export Heroes Award.
CBH has nine member-elected grower directors and three independent directors. Mr Lock will be appointed independent director for a three-year term starting after the next annual meeting to be held on February 22, 2019, with his position to be ratified by members at the 2020 AGM.
Mr Willis was appointed as an independent director of the CBH board in March 2010.
