The peak representative body for the potato industry value chain, Potatoes South Australia Incorporated, has appointed experienced director Mr Mark Geraghty as its new Independent Chair, at a meeting of the Association’s Board on 24 June 2020.

Mr Geraghty replaces Dr Andrew MacDonald who has been in the role since 2017. Dr MacDonald said that the Board was very pleased to announce Mr Geraghty’s appointment at a time when Potatoes South Australia is entering an exciting new phase of its evolution.

“We’re delighted to have someone of such strategic calibre come on board to help guide Potatoes South Australia as we look to build momentum and strength both upwards and onwards nationally,” Dr MacDonald said.

“The ‘not-for-profit’ association continues to improve its capacity and professionalism in the delivery of relevant, timely, value-adding information and services (particularly R&D) to industry stakeholders in the nation’s largest horticultural sector.

This appointment will ensure that our strategic direction remains on target as the business further evolves, involving new complexities and challenges domestically and internationally. I am also very grateful for the foundations cemented by Andrew, particularly commercially in our value-adding pursuits,” said Potatoes South Australia CEO, Ms Robbie Davis.
