CBH Group Director Rod Madden to not seek reelection


The CBH Group has been advised that Member Director Rod Madden will not re-nominate beyond his term, which is due to expire at the conclusion of the 2020 Annual General Meeting, to be held on 20 February 2020.

Mr Madden, who produces grain and sheep on his farm in Morawa, has been a Director of CBH for more than 11 years during two periods of office.

He was elected as a Director of the CBH Board in April 2006 and served as a Director until 2012, before being re-elected in 2014. He is currently Chair of the Network and Engineering Committee and a member of the Investment Committee.

Mr Madden said he would continue to have an active interest in CBH and Western Australia’s agricultural sector.

“I have greatly enjoyed representing our growers and seeking outcomes from their co-operative that benefit their farm businesses,” he said.

“My focus has always been on the core business of paddock to port, supply chain logistics and ensuring we achieve the right level of service for our member’s requirements, especially the focus on improving site infrastructure and turnaround times.”

CBH Chairman Wally Newman said Mr Madden has extensive knowledge being involved in many co-operatives over time and thanked him for his contribution to CBH and representing growers.

“Rod has been a strong advocate of Western Australian growers, always driving to advance their interests during his tenure on the CBH Board.

“He has similarly been very passionate about the co-operative, contributing to its protection measures enshrined in the constitution last year and is also supportive of introducing co-operative education, so all members and management understand the value and advantage CBH holds, well into the future,” Mr Newman said.

“On behalf of the Board, I sincerely thank Rod for his contribution to CBH and we wish him every success in his future endeavours.”
