Applications are now open for a qualified person to serve as a non-executive director on the Australian Wool Innovation board. Previously AWI had openings for two board candidates with the announcement that David Webster and James Morgan would both be stepping down. This third board position to open up will be to replace either Noel Henderson or Michelle Humphries, who have yet to make a decision to re-elect or stand down. The position is open to those individuals who have the experience and expertise in a broad range of areas including international commercial finance and global supply chain marketing and or an understanding of digital transformation. The successful candidates will be eligible to be put up for election at the AWI annual general meeting in November. The preferred candidate must have an interest in the agriculture sector and board experience would be highly regarded with an understanding of governance and board decision-making processes. AWI is a not-for-profit company owned by 19,000 owner growers that invests in research and development and marketing along the global supply chain for Australian wool — from woolgrowers through to retailers. It is the prescribed body for receipt of levy funds from Australian woolgrowers and also matching R&D funds from the Federal Government. It is not a political representative body for woolgrowers. The company’s mission is to make strategically targeted investments to enhance the profitability, international competitiveness and sustainability of the Australian wool industry. AWI aims to increase demand and market access for Australian wool. AWI is the owner of The Woolmark Company and the world-renowned Woolmark logo —the world’s best known textile fibre brand — that has been applied to more than five billion products since its creation in 1964. Applicants are encouraged to send through a resume and covering letter in Word to email@example.com by Wednesday, July 12.
