WEST PERTH, AUSTRALIA — The CBH Group announced on July 30 the appointment of Courtney Rose as the new business relationship manager to service the Esperance region.

Rose joins a team of 12 managers committed to providing growers with information on CBH Grain’s innovative pools and competitive cash pricing options, as well as information from the market and feedback from our international customers.

The managers also provide valuable feedback to the CBH marketing team throughout the year on production and marketing issues. This helps CBH to improve existing products and develop new marketing options to better meet growers' needs.

Rose joins the co-operative with strong experience in the grains industry, having previously worked with GrainCorp as a grain merchant for the southern region of WA and in the agribusiness banking sector.

She grew up on her family farm at Wickepin and completed a double degree in agriculture and commerce at the University of Western Australia.

“The opportunity with CBH has enabled me to move to Esperance to be closer to my partner who farms with his family at Scaddan,” Rose said. “Having previously worked with the CBH Group as a sampler for seven harvest seasons during school and university holidays, I have always regarded the CBH Group as a reputable organization and excellent to work for.

“I am excited by the opportunities that CBH can provide in terms of allowing me to continue to work in the grains industry and enhance my knowledge of the constantly changing grain marketing environment.”
