WAFarmers chief executive Trent Kensett-Smith has resigned after 11 months in the top job.

The advocacy organisation released a statement just after 5pm today, which said Mr Kensett-Smith “has made the decision to return to the agribusiness sector”.

“He is leaving the WAFarmers organisation to pursue these interests”, the statement said.

“WAFarmers wishes Mr Kensett-Smith well for his future endeavours.

“The WAFarmers board of directors will begin the process of recruitment for a new chief executive immediately.”

Mr Kensett-Smith started with WAFarmers at the end of September, spending his first week at the IGA Perth Royal Show.

He moved to Perth from Narrogin to take up the position at WAFarmers.
