Cotton Australia, which has been servicing the needs of Australian cotton growers, has appointed new directors. The decision was taken at its recently held meeting in Gold Coast.

A total of three new directors and a new chairman have been roped in as part of Cotton Australia’s Board.

The new board appointments will play a major role in assisting Cotton Australia in its ongoing work representing the cotton industry to a high standard.

Hamish McIntyre who has been serving as deputy chairman for the last three years, has been named as the successor of retiring chairman Simon Corish while existing board member Nigel Burnett has been named new deputy chairman of the Board.

Board positions vacated by Corish, Barb Grey, and Chris Hogendyk will be assumed by Bernard Bierhoff from the Walgett Cotton Growers’ Association and Jeremy Callachor from Namoi Cotton. Callachor, who was an existing director, has been successfully re-nominated for his Board position.

The newly appointed Chairman Hamish McIntyre thanked retiring Board members, Simon Corish, Barb Grey, and Chris Hogendyk, on behalf of Cotton Australia Board for their service, hard work, and commitment to our industry throughout their tenure.

Cotton Australia, an apex body of cotton producers in Australia, supports more than 1200 cotton farming families in NSW, Queensland, and in Victoria as well.
