Board changes at AGG Co-op
The Australian Grain Growers’ Co-operative (AGG Co-op) has farewelled inaugural board member Peter Glover and welcomed Richard Konzag to the casual vacancy.
AGG Co-op Chairman Andrew Polkinghorne thanked outgoing board member Mr Glover for his tireless and extended service, support and expertise.
“Peter has done a wonderful job and served the Co-op as Board Secretary since its formation in 2010 and we wish him well as he returns to full-time farming,” Mr Polkinghorne said.
“Peter’s enthusiasm and experience has created an optimistic environment for the Co-op to continue to benefit all grain growers.
“His candour, dry wit and business acumen will be missed around the board table but I am confident his efforts will continue to build business for AGG Co-op.”
Richard Konzag has been appointed to the resultant casual vacancy. Mr Konzag is a grain grower at Mallala, in SA’s Lower North.
“Richard brings years of experience to AGG including qualifications as a graduate from the Institute of Company Directors and service as a GRDC Southern Panel member,” Mr Polkinghorne said.
“We are fortunate to have such a talent available and we’re excited to have him on the team.”
Mr Konzag currently crops about 1800 hectares to wheat, durum, barley, beans, lentils, canola and oaten hay. He has served in positions on the SA Advisory Board of Agriculture, the Plant Biosecurity CRC Grains Advisory Panel and the Research Development & Extension Committee (RD&E) of Grain Producers SA.
Mr Konzag will formally stand for the position at the AGG Co-op AGM, which will this year be held following the Hart Field Day on September 20, 2016. Grower members are welcome to attend the AGM and hear about the business achievements of AGG Co-op and its vision for the future.
