The CBH Group, Australia’s largest exporter of grain, has been advised that Member Director Derek Clauson will not re-nominate beyond his term, due to expire at the conclusion of the 2019 Annual General Meeting. Mr Clauson, who runs a continuous cropping operation at Yelbeni and Bencubbin, has been a Director of CBH since February 2013. He is currently Chairman of the Workplace Health and Safety Committee, as well as Chairman of the Network and Engineering Committee. Mr Clauson said that while he was stepping down from the CBH Board, he would continue to have an active interest in CBH and Western Australia’s agricultural sector. “I have much enjoyed representing our growers over the past five years on the CBH Board, and have always sought to advance their needs and aspirations in that time,” he said. “In retiring from the Board, I am looking forward to the birth of my 14th grandchild and spending time with my family.” CBH Chairman Wally Newman thanked Mr Clauson for his contribution to CBH and his representation of growers.
