Victorian leafy vegetable grower Bill Bulmer has been appointed chair of Ausveg’s board.
The third generation grower was unanimously elected to the position following a board meeting in Melbourne on Monday (13 November).
Bulmer is director of Bulmer Farms, located in Lindenow in East Gippsland, and currently sits on the executive committee of Ausveg Vic and the horticulture committee of the Victorian Farmers’ Federation.
He succeeds Geoff Moar, who decided not to nominate for re-election after holding the position since 2013. Moar will continue to serve on the Ausveg Board, with Queensland vegetable grower Belinda Adams unanimously re-elected to the position of Ausveg deputy chair.
“On behalf of the Ausveg board I would like to thank Geoff for his hard work and dedication to the industry during his time as Ausveg chair,” Bulmer said.
“I look forward to working extensively with the wider vegetable and potato industries to continue Geoff’s enduring legacy and lead our organisation and the Australian vegetable and potato industries into the future.”
“Ausveg looks forward to continuing to effectively represent Australian vegetable and potato growers in the year ahead and is eager to continue working with the wider Australian horticulture and agriculture industry for the betterment of our growers.”
