New members appointed to CBH Growers' Advisory Council


The CBH Group is pleased to announce four new growers will join the Growers’ Advisory Council (GAC).

The new councillors are Nick Jenzen of Cunderdin, Darren Baum of Ongerup, Reece Curwen of South Stirling and Mark Mudie of West River.

Each councillor has been appointed for a four-year term, commencing 1 July 2023.

Made up of 16 Western Australian grain growers, the GAC provides a formal channel to facilitate feedback and communication between the co-operative’s grower members and the CBH Board and management team.

Due to the expiry of the terms of sitting Councillors, five positions were open to new members. However, the GAC unanimously elected Craig Doney to remain in the position of Chair of the GAC for another year, leaving four available positions.

Mr Jenzen fills the District 2 vacancy, Mr Baum and Mr Curwen fill the District 4 positions and Mr Mudie fills the District 5 vacancy.

The new Councillors replace outgoing councillors Stephanie Clarke of Bolgart, Michael Caughey of Merredin, Jeff Stoney of Gnowellen, and Dan Sanderson of Esperance.
CBH Chair Simon Stead congratulated the incoming councillors on their successful appointment.

“The GAC provide the CBH Group Board and Senior Management team with invaluable insights and knowledge at the grass roots level, particularly on matters that directly impact growers’ businesses,” Mr Stead said.

“I would like to thank the outgoing GAC councillors for their contributions, and I am sure they will continue to play an active role in sharing their knowledge and experience through the GAC Alumni.

“I also warmly welcome the four new candidates to the Council, and I look forward to working with each of them as CBH continues to focus on sustainably creating and returning value to Western Australian growers.”

New councillors will attend their first GAC meeting on Thursday 3 August 2023.
