ALPA vacancy

By Country News

Australian Livestock & Property Agents Association chief executive officer Andy Madigan has resigned from the role.

‘‘This has been a big decision to make and for me personally, I believe the time is right for me to retire and step aside so ALPA can have a new person at the helm after my 15-and-a-half years as CEO,’’ Mr Madigan said.

‘‘The recent strategic plan has set ALPA up for the future and in my opinion this needs a fresh set of eyes to oversee these changes for the benefit of all going forward.

‘‘Since my appointment in April 2004 we have achieved so much and in the best interests of the ALPA members, I am convinced that a change is needed to take ALPA to the next stage as the peak industry body for stock and station agents.’’

Mr Madigan will remain in the role until a replacement is found.
