Australian macadamia industry appoints new CEO

Australia’s macadamia industry has welcomed Clare Hamilton-Bate to the role of Chief Executive Officer, following the departure of Jolyon Burnett last month after 14 years at the helm.

Clare comes to the position with a background in horticultural science, and extensive experience in executive roles in all sectors of horticulture, from farm to consumer, as well as industry and association management in the UK, Australia and internationally. 

Australian Macadamia Society Chair Craig Mills describes Clare as a passionate, accomplished, and engaging leader who will bring significant insight and a wealth of experience to the role.

“Clare has over 30 years’ experience across all sectors of the fresh produce and agri-food supply chain, and a proven track record in leading member-driven organisations. She is well equipped to lead our industry into a sustainable and profitable future,” he said.
