PMA Australia & New Zealand announces new Directors

PMA Australia-New Zealand announced at their Annual General Meeting on 20 November, that Craig Taylor, Andrew Common and Ilango Surendran, will be joining PMA A-NZ Board of Directors, effective 20/11/2019. The appointment of these new Directors, comes after the resignation of Daniel Williams, Perry Sansom and Felicity Turner who retired throughout the year.

PMA A-NZ is proud to announce the new appointments, all of whom bring years of experience in fresh produce from across the supply chain. Craig Taylor, the newly appointed General Manager of Fresh Produce at Coles, will be bringing his experience at the retail giant to the Board. Representing New Zealand, Andrew Common, CEO of Freshmax NZ, joined the Board earlier in the year. Announced at the Annual General Meeting on 20 November, Ilango Surendran will be joining from Harvest Mark Trimble where he is the Australia and New Zealand Regional Manager.

“We’re excited to welcome the new Director appointments to the Board of Directors. It’s going to give PMA A-NZ an absolute advantage having Craig, Andrew and Ilango join, given they all have such extensive careers across the supply chain for fresh produce” says Darren Keating, PMA A-NZ CEO. “We already have a very talented and well-respected Board of Directors, who are all industry leaders in their own right, so these appointments will bolster our direction and strategy going into 2020 and beyond. We’re thankful they have joined and are looking forward to their contributions.”

The Annual General Meeting, held in Port Melbourne, saw 50 fresh produce professionals from Australia and New Zealand come together for strategic development, to set the direction for PMA A-NZ in 2020 and networking opportunities. On the back of the 2019 success, which is outlined in the Annual Report, launched last week, PMA A-NZ encourages members to be engaged with the association and provide feedback for the 2020 schedule of content and events available to members and non-members across both countries.
