Apple and Pear Australia Limited appoints Lisa May as Chair of the Board

Apple and Pear Australia Limited (APAL) has announced Lisa May as its new Chair of the APAL Board of Directors, effective 3 June 2024. May succeeds Reg Weine who has stood down after dedicating four years to the APAL Board.

Lisa May, new Chair of the APAL Board of Directors.

May brings to the APAL Board over 25 years of experience in the FMCG and retail sectors, including Unilever, Campbell Arnott's, Bendon and Nestlé. She began her portfolio career in 2020 with several chair and advisory board roles across industry and sport. In addition to chairing the APAL Board, Lisa is the Chair of the Steinhardt Group in Bundaberg and a Non-Executive Director for Priestley's Gourmet Delights in Brisbane.

Phil Turnbull, CEO of APAL said, "We're thrilled to have found such talent as Lisa, who will bring great experience in commercial operations, sales and marketing, and executive management roles to the APAL Board. This robust corporate experience, paired with Lisa's skills in executive mentoring and leadership mastered through her successful coaching practice, will complement and further strengthen the existing skillset of the APAL Board of Directors. Lisa is passionate about food, people and the planet, and will bring a global perspective, strategic thinking and thoughtful counsel to APAL, which will be invaluable to the Australian industry and the further development of APAL's new commercial entity, Twenty Degrees."

May's position as Chair came into effect on 3 June 2024, replacing Weine, who has been APAL Chair since July 2022 and was a Non-Executive Director of APAL since March 2020. Weine stepped down from the APAL Board in June 2024 following his appointment to the Bubs Australia CEO and Managing Director position.

"We thank Reg for the positive impact he's had on the APAL Board over the years and for the advocacy he's demonstrated to ensure a sustainable future for the industry. We are grateful for the passion and integrity demonstrated by Reg during his time on the Board, and we wish him great success in his new leadership role at Bubs Australia," said Turnbull.
