Welcome to Central West Local Land Services newest board member
06 Feb 2023
Local Land Services is this month welcoming a new board member to help shape the strategic direction of the organisation in the Central West.
Ross McCarthy is a manager at Dubbo Regional Livestock Markets, one of the largest saleyards in Australia. In this role Ross has contributed to many business improvements, resulting in an animal welfare award for the business.
For the past three years, Ross has been president of the Australian Saleyard Managers Association and a board member for the Australian Livestock Markets Association.
Ross holds a bachelor's degree in Agricultural Economics and has worked for 20 years in the finance industry, where much of his roles involved high levels of financial control, audit, reporting and risk management.
The Central West Board also welcomes the reappointment of Andrew Rice.
Central West Chair Susan Madden says board succession is an important part of our strategic commitment to growing Local Land Services.
“Local Land Services boards support our on-ground work focused on securing the long-term sustainability of our natural resources and agricultural industries in NSW,” said Susan Madden.
“While we are keen to welcome Ross and his fresh perspective to the board, and the reappointment of Andrew, I also want to acknowledge the experience and commitment of our outgoing board member Christine White who will finish up in March.”
“Christine has provided invaluable input to shape our board decisions and strategic support to our frontline staff and customers and we wish her well for the future.”
Local Land Services boards are made up of a mix of ministerially appointed and elected members, with staggered terms to ensure consistent ongoing leadership is provided to the organisation.
